With the acceptance of beef from cattle under 30 months of age, Canadian beef and veal market opportunities in Japan have increased significantly. As well, strong economic growth in China with additional Canadian processing plants approved for export has seen exports double over the past year. In order to support the increased investment in Japan and China, resources from other markets will be redirected as needed. Resources in the mature Hong Kong and Taiwan markets will be reallocated to support growing Canadian beef and veal marketing efforts in southern China and Southeast Asia. Canada Beef’s office in Hong Kong will be downsized, representing a significant cost savings. Canada Beef’s office presence in Taiwan has also been reduced to reflect the shift of trade towards other Asian countries. While the South Korean market reopened to Canadian beef exports last year, the effects of the South Korean/U.S. free trade agreement has led to an accelerated reduction of tariffs on U.S. beef which has severely impacted the competitiveness of Canadian exports in the market. While Canada has actively engaged with South Korea over the past 18 months to negotiate a Canada-South Korea free trade agreement of its own, unfortunately the negotiations have not progressed. With Canada unable to secure a free trade agreement of its own, future market prospects for Canadian beef are extremely limited in South Korea due to the higher tariff barriers it faces. Consequently, Canada Beef’s office in South Korea will be closed immediately and future market development work will be conducted with the help of the Canadian Embassy and trade commissioners. “Based on projected cattle marketings and the wind-up of industry development funds, Canada Beef knows that revenues for industry marketing and promotion activities will be significantly reduced in the next few years,” adds Canada Beef President Rob Meijer.
