VILNIUS - Lithuania expects to get permits for beef and beef product exports to China in June, Agriculture Minister Giedrius Surplys said on Friday.
"We expect to obtain China's permits for exporting our beef shortly. Their agencies are currently carrying out their checks," Surplys said at a news conference after a forum of agriculture ministers from China and 16 Central and Eastern European countries in Vilnius.
"We expect to be granted these permits in June," he added.
Lithuania has been holding talks with China on beef exports since 2015.
