Taiwan to double beef import quotas from Paraguay

Taiwan has agreed to double beef import quotas from Paraguay from 880 metric tons to 1,776 metric tons annually, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said in a news release Saturday. The ministry said that Foreign Affairs Minister Timothy C. T. Yang, currently on a three-nation visit of Panama, Saint Lucia and Paraguay, formally announced the quota increases after meeting with Paraguayan President Fernando Lugo.
The MOFA said that Paraguay, recognized by the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) as a country free of FMD (foot-and-mouth disease), is one of the top 10 beef exporters in the world, shipping its product mainly to the European Union, Central and South America, Africa and Asia.
