A record volume of beef and veal imports into the EU outside of special preferential arrangements has been reported by Meat and Livestock Australia. In 2002/03 the EU imported 61,615 tonnes of beef at full duty, some 27% above 2001/2002 levels. The most important markets for this beef were Germany, the UK and the Netherlands. Comment: This suggest that there is considerable scope for ACP beef exporters to fully utilise their existing quotas and pick up the new markets arising from Zimbabwe's current exclusion from the market. However, in order to be able to do this the rules of origin on beef products may well need to be relaxed in order to allow greater cumulation with neighbouring non-ACP beef producers.
