oticias Peru: Minagri streamlines efforts to access blueberries and pomegranates to the Chinese market

The next objective of the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation (Minagri) is to promote the access of blueberries, grenades and stevia to the Chinese market, which involves 1,400 millions of potential consumers, according to the minister, Juan Manuel Benites.

He said that in his conversations with his Popular China colleague, Zhi Shuping, it was agreed to promote the entry of other items to that market, such as blueberries, pomegranates and stevia leaves, and that it could materialize in the short term.

In this regard, Benites estimated that the opening of new markets and the promotion of products abroad envisage that by the end of the 2015, non-traditional agricultural exports will grow by 20 percent and sales of food abroad would reach 5,000 million dollars.

Benites said that Peru already has Agricultural Aggregates in the most important markets in the world, in order to work on phytosanitary issues, and whose measure will shorten the time for the entry of new Peruvian products. He also pointed out that the first country that will have an Agricultural Attaché will be the People's Republic of China.
