The white pork sector advocates for understanding in trade relations between the European Union and China, and makes itself available to the Chinese authorities to share all the documentation they require. This has been stated by the White-Capped Pork Agri-Food Interprofessional (INTERPORC) following the statement from the Chinese authorities in which they announced an anti-dumping investigation into the import of pork and its by-products originating in the EU. A process that will last about a year and in which there is plenty of time for the EU and China to reach agreements.
