    Highlight: As the result of the highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) outbreaks in China and other parts of the world, Chinese beef demand increased in 2005 as consumers shifted from poultry to red meat. However, China's ban on imported U.S. beef remains in place, though market access was achieved for bovine semen/embryos and non-ruminant products (e.g., swine/poultry feeds, pet foods, etc.). Additionally, China's zero tolerance for certain pathogens on pork, beef and poultry products continue to impact trade. During 2006, China's pork production, comprising over half of the world's total supply, is forecast to increase 5 percent to 52 MMT, while beef production will rise 6.9 percent to 7.7 MMT. China's beef imports are not forecast to increase in 2006, while pork imports will decrease 4 percent due to a surplus in domestic supplies and low prices.
