Vietnam has removed all cattle age and product restrictions on US beef and beef products, provided these items are derived from cattle slaughtered on or after March 27. In 2014, the US exported a total of 2869 tonnes of beef and beef variety meat valued at USD 22.1 million to Vietnam.
The US Meat Export Federation (USMEF) said the removal of cattle age and product restrictions is a positive development, especially in a market that is price-sensitive. Thad Lively, USMEF senior vice President for trade access noted that having access to Vietnam for a full range of beef products will allow the US industry to better capitalise on any market access gains resulting from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
