Germany has agreed the removal of China’s ban on its beef products after talks between Berlin and Beijing.

This decision was agreed by Yu Jianhua, the Minister of China’s General Administration of Customs and Cem Özdemir, Germany’s Minister of Food and Agriculture. China had banned exports of all beef from the EU since 2000, due to the risk of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or ‘mad cow’ disease.

Beijing is progressively making moves to relax the regulations. Earlier this year, China also lifted the ban on exports of Spanish beef.
