After two decades China has ended a ban on imports of beef from the UK.
The government considers that this will be worth £250m to British producers over the next 5 years.
This is a real breakthrough for British farmers with the UK currently selling more than £560m of food and drink from the farming sector a year to China. Making China the 8th biggest export market for such products.
"This is great news for British farmers." "Today's milestone will help to unlock UK agriculture's full potential and is a major step to forging new trading relationships around the globe,"
