Argentina's government said Saturday that Mexican authorities have given the green light for imports of boneless beef produced in the South American country, reported Reuters.

The announcement came after eight years of negotiations between the two countries and more than a decade since Mexico last imported these cuts from Argentina.

In a statement, Argentina's government said the Mexican agriculture sanitation authority, known locally as SENASICA, authorised 22 meatpacking plants to export bovine meat products.

It said the Argentine control system "complies with the major health and food safety standards Mexico demands" and that both authorities agreed to adjust other details on health certificates.
