China interested in imports of Latvian foodstuff

"We are beginning to work on various procedures to effectively organize bilateral agricultural exports and imports, since China's population is very large and the country cannot satisfy its domestic demand for several agricultural products, therefore it is necessary to import them," emphasized Niu Dun.
Straujuma in turn said that the value of Latvian agricultural exports to China amounts to EUR 6.62 million (LVL 4.63 million) per year, with bilberries constituting 97 percent, while agricultural import from China reaches EUR 8.78 million (LVL 6.15 million) per year, consisting of mostly canned vegetables and fruits, fish, fruits and nuts, reports LETA/Nozare.lv.
