Notes
CHINA – removal of import restrictions - Canadian rapeseed: Canada has been granted permission – on a trial basis – to resume deliveries of rapeseed to a crushing plant located close to China’s main rapeseed growing area. Such imports had been banned since 2009 due to concerns over possible fungal disease contamination. The two countries are said to have joined forced to develop appropriate risk mitigation measures (see also MPPU Apr’13).
