Paraguay Working Beef Back into Russia

18 September 2015

PARAGUAY – Paraguayan trade officials met on Monday to discuss a proposed action plan to reopen meat shipments into the Russian market.

Meetings are scheduled with Russian regulators and a further talk in October will clarify the requirements of Russia’s market, a government spokesperson said.

Meat exports were suspended earlier, blocking six processing units, and halting the shipments of Paraguayan beef - 31 per cent of Russian imports.

In March, Saudi Arabia granted Paraguay access for live poultry sheep and cattle exports.
