A few days after the conclusion of the measure for the temporary closure of meat exports, the Minister of Productive Development,

Matías Kulfas

, affirmed that "this week the livestock plan will be announced to ensure that there is meat on the Argentine table, without neglecting the export sector ".

"We are in the final


of a

set of measures that include an agreement with the meat sector

, where the objective is to guarantee that the Argentine table is supplied and that the export business can continue," said the Minister before the Resolution 75/2021 expires on June 20. 

Kulfas explained that "

we want to go to a livestock plan that will lead us to about 5 million tons of meat production per year

, since China is an opportunity but we must do it in an orderly fashion, without neglecting the domestic market."

The minister, in dialogue with C5N,

declined to confirm whether export restrictions will be eliminated

and only limited himself to saying that "this week we will disseminate the measures that contain a livestock plan where the supply of meat in the domestic market is contemplated and accompany the export sector ".

For his part,

Mario Ravettino

, president of Consorcio ABC, the organization that is negotiating with the Government, said the latest proposal was presented last Friday.

"The proposal is

focused on dumping a greater number of cuts to the domestic market

. We are looking for more mouths where people can find it. I know that the Government is also analyzing the prohibition or temporary suspension of some cuts for export," he said during an interview with CNN Radio.

, Israel's ambassador to Argentina, said on Monday that "if we cannot know that they are going to sell us meat on a regular basis, we will look for other places."

Annoyed by what is happening with the meat stocks, she claimed that 

"it cannot be that every time Argentina feels like it, Israel runs out of meat,

" criticized the diplomat who added that she had conversations with different government officials after the controversial decision to close meat exports for 30 days.

“I suggested that they give us a quota like Hilton with the European Union, or of kosher meat with the United States, but this is a solution that takes time;

making a fee is a legal process that takes time, "he specified.
