In response to the economic and social crisis in Argentina, EU Agriculture Commissioner Fischler announced the opening of an additional 10,000 tonne quota for quality beef (Hilton Beef) imports. Argentina now enjoys an annual quota of 38,000 tonnes on which a duty of only 20% is applied. Comment: The gradual expansion of duty free access for third countries with whom the EU is seeking to conclude free trade area agreements will progressively erode ACP margins of preference for agricultural exports. This highlights the need for ACP countries to work out how they can improve the marketing and hence financial returns on their beef exports to the EU.
