New Zealand's annual goods exports to China surge in April




(MENAFN) New Zealand's annual products exports to China have increased USD1.76 billion from April 2018 to reach USD9.77 billion in April this year for the first time, with growing demand for beef and lamb as well as logs and dairy products.

The annual meat and edible offal exports to China reached USD0.98 billion, up USD589.73 billion from the year which ended April 2018.

Head of the international statistics manager said: "The strong demand recently from the Chinese market for alternative protein sources, such as New Zealand beef and lamb is partly due to African swine flu reducing pork production in China."

The jump in annual lamb exports was driven by the increase in the value of lamb sent to China, while traditional markets such as the Europe Union remain similar or have shown slight falls.
