China, France Sign Agreement On French Beef Imports To China: Reuters Witness
China signed an agreement on Monday with France on importing beef from the European country, according to a Reuters witness.
The deal was about hygiene and inspection requirements for French beef, according to a statement read out by an unidentified Chinese official who was announcing the agreement at the Great Hall of the People.
