Japan’s Pork Imports U.S. pork exports to Japan have more than doubled in value since 2003; reaching $1.646 Billion in 2010 and expected to set another record this year. Japan’s total imports are relatively flat but the U.S. has gained market share. Source: Global Trade Atlas
Mexico Pork Potential – Duty-free and proximal market – U.S. dominates Mexico’s pork imports – Domestic production continues to grow but pending transition to larger commercial producers and subject to corn prices – Imports also grow with U.S. as dominant supplier – Per capita consumption grows slowly + population growth – Continued need for U.S. bone-in hams – Price (and currency) sensitive
Central/South America – Diverse region – Free trade agreements – Income growth – Imports also grow with U.S. as dominant supplier – Per capita consumption grows with income & population – Some markets are relatively small but opportunities for the niche suppliers

Beef Outlook Largest Potential Growth Markets Japan Korea China Middle East Mexico
Japan Beef Potential – U.S. market share of imported beef, back to dominant position of pre-BSE – Per capita consumption recover to pre-BSE level – Domestic production slow decline – Potential change in the current LT21 months age limit – Preference for U.S. grain-fed, including high Choice – Takes large volumes of “Asia cuts” including short plate – No change in duties likely without Doha or TPP agreement (38.5 percent ad valorem plus risk of triggering safeguard)
Japan Beef Situation Source: USDA/FAS Fall PS&D, Carcass weight equivalent
Japan’s Beef Imports Source: Global Trade Atlas 2011 total imports estimated +5% to 581,000 MT
Korea Beef Potential – U.S. market share of imported beef, back to dominant position of pre-BSE – Demand for U.S. grain-fed, especially certain mix of Asian cuts but USMEF working to build demand for more cuts – Per capita consumption recover to pre-BSE level with further expansion possible – Elimination of duties through KORUS, from 40% to zero over 15 years – Slow decline in domestic production
Korea’s Beef Imports Source: Global Trade Atlas 2011 total imports estimated +24% to 361,500 MT
China Beef Potential – Once the U.S. regains access, assume tremendous growth potential (some diversion of current exports) – Rampant foodservice growth – Lack of domestic production, especially of high quality beef – High prices indicate tight supplies – U.S. ability to supply specific high quality cuts in large, consistent volumes – Expect demand to build for a wide array of cuts and offals – Middle class population and urbanization – GDP growth – Cold chain & infrastructure development – Slowly appreciating currency – Low per capita consumption compared to pork and poultry
China Challenges Duties + VAT = 27% De facto import licensing (AQSIQ) Quota management (MOFCOM’s ARF) Excessive labeling requirements Opaque port inspection procedures Potential plant-by-plant registrations Undervalued currency Sanitary barriers – BSE related beef ban – Ractopamine & beta agonist ban plus hormone ban on the books for beef – Zero tolerance for pathogens on fresh/frozen raw meat
Beef Exports to China/Hong Kong/Vietnam, January-August Source: Global Trade Atlas
Middle East Beef Potential – High income growth; business travelers – Beef fits religious requirements (halal can have challenges) – Generally good U.S. access to the region – Range of products from offals to muscle cuts for processing to HQB – U.S. competitive supplier of certain cuts and growing demand for high quality – General lack of domestic production – Foodservice growth and cold chain development – Continue as large offal market (Egypt) – Region as a whole is already top beef importer
Mexico Beef Potential – Growing consumption and production over longer-term – Domestic production will depend on drought and feed prices – NAFTA= favorable access; U.S. dominates Mexico’s beef imports – Price is a challenge but preference for beef – Beef round demand to supplement domestic – Live cattle exports to U.S.
Mexico Dynamics Mexican feeder cattle exports to U.S. up 21% to 994,027 head (Jan-Oct 22) Imports of beef from Mexico also on a record pace at 40,790 mt through August, up 60% – Now the fourth-largest supplier to U.S. after Canada, New Zealand & Australia, with 8% market share – Mexico is shipping mostly chilled middle meats to the U.S. Cow inventory & calf crop relatively steady ~expansion not expected Source: USDA/FAS Fall PS&DSource: USDA/FAS Fall PS&D, Carcass weight equivalent Thousand Head

Challenges facing U.S. poultry exports
Challenge of High Feed Grain Prices The prolonged economic downturn is a challenge for the world poultry industry because it has led to higher unemployment, lower consumer income, and lower consumption, which translates into a weak market demand for meat protein. Our biggest challenge remains high feed grain prices. But, as the most efficient converter of feed to meat, the impact on poultry is less than other meats. Record corn and soybean prices, combined with depressed sales, have put nearly every U.S. poultry company in an unprofitable situation. The global situation is similar.
Animal diseases such as AI impact trade While earlier AI consumer scares have subsided, incidents of HPAI is on the rise….Asia, Africa and Europe. U.S. and Brazil remain free of HPAI. In Asia and Africa, the prevalence of backyard flocks and the inability of governments to implement appropriate control measures could spell a major production disaster. Even though OIE says trade should not be restricted on basis of LPAI ….many countries still do……China, Taiwan, Philippines, Kuwait, Cuba, Russia…….affecting such states as Virginia, Arkansas, Texas, N. Carolina, Missouri, and Minnesota.
Religious and Cultural Barriers This sort of barriers to entry are often encountered in predominately-Muslim countries. For example, entry to Malaysia and Indonesia, and Saudi Arabia must meet the halal regulations, meaning animals should be raised, slaughtered and processed in accordance with Muslim rites. But definitions, interpretations, and regulations of halal vary widely from country to country in both print and practice. The ambiguous regulations combined with cost- inefficient in halal production have dissuaded U.S. poultry processors from selling products to those markets.
Trade Barriers in Major Export Markets The EU has banned U.S. poultry products since the EU began prohibiting the use of chlorine in chill water in And the expansion of EU since 1997 has eliminated U.S. key export markets in Eastern Europe. South Africa launched AD investigation against U.S. chicken bone-in cuts in 1999, and has imposed punitive anti-dumping duties since July In apparent retaliation, China launched AD/CVD investigations in September 2009 against U.S. broiler products, and has imposed punitive AD/CVD duties since February Bachoco in Mexico joined the anti-dumping frenzy in February Preliminary determination yet to be announced.
Russia Continues to Cut Poultry Import Quota thousand MT
Opportunities for U.S. poultry export growth
Next Decade: A Great Growth Period for Poultry, Globally GDP will grow faster in developing countries, implying more import demand for broiler meat. World population hit 7 billion on October 31, In particular, increased population in the Muslim countries will favor poultry consumption. Energy and feed costs are expected to remain high everywhere in the next decade, but poultry is the most energy efficient protein as well as the most efficient converter of feed. Also, poultry production demands less water, uses less arable land, and emits less greenhouse gases.

World Broiler Net Exports in the Next Decade Source: FAPRI Net exports is expected to increase at an average rate of 3.0 percent throughout 2020.
Opportunities in the Chinese Market China’s potential is huge because: – low per capita consumption ( <10 kg) – large population and rapid urbanization. – rapid increase in consumer income. – increasing dependence on imports of feed grains. – shortage of water resources on per capita basis. In particular, China provides the best market opportunities for U.S. chicken paws and wing tips, which has limited alternative markets in the world. But opportunities for broiler exports in the near term are limited due to the punitive AD/CVD duties imposed on U.S. chicken products.

U.S. Broiler Exports to China Source: USDA/FAS Exports to China in 2009 accounted for 20% of U.S. total exports, but due to the punitive AD/CVD duties, 2010 exports fell to 3%. And so far this year, exports to China were further down 16% year on year.
About the Chinese AD/CVD case USTR took the dispute to the WTO on Sept. 20, We believe that the U.S. will win the case as the Chinese methodology was seriously flawed and the anti-dumping proceeding did not comply with WTO rules. It’s unfortunate that this dispute has to be addressed through the formal WTO process, but we believe it is necessary that the incorrect methodology be challenged and that U.S. trading rights under WTO be protected. The U.S. industry has been cooperating with the Chinese industry and government on other initiatives to improve conditions of two- way poultry trade. Our commitment to those initiatives will not be affected by this separate WTO case.
Mexico: Our Major Market to the South Mexico is our new No. 1 market, after loss of Russia and China. Shipments to Mexico in 2010 reached 438,584 metric tons, accounting for 13% of U.S. total broiler exports and 50% of turkey exports worldwide. Exports to Mexico have increased rapidly since 2007 with full implementation of NAFTA (all U.S. poultry products now enter duty free, no quota). In the long run, potential in Mexico is huge because: – population is projected to increase constantly throughout – per capita real GDP (in 2005 US$) is projected to increase from $7,374 in 2010 to $9,568 in 2020 and $12,567 in – increasingly depends on imports of feed grains. – Mexican domestic production tends to further lag behind consumption.

BUT….Mexico has now joined the Anti-Dumping Frenzy As a result of a petition from its largest producer, Bachoco, Mexico initiated AD case against U.S. chicken leg quarters on February 8, The U.S. industry as well as the Mexican Poultry Producers Association (UNA) and many public officials in Mexico were surprised, as the U.S. and Mexican poultry industries have a long history of cooperation. Our lawyers insist that this case lacks justification. Our calculations show that U.S. companies were not selling their chicken to Mexico at prices below the U.S. price, which is the definition of dumping, but we must go through the fight. U.S. CLQ exports to Mexico in the foreseeable future are subject to uncertainties due to the AD case.
Opportunities in the Middle East U.S. poultry shipments to the Middle East increased at an average rate of 18.9 percent in the past decade ending in Exports to the Middle East are expected to maintain a double-digit growth in the near term. Currently, the key importers in this region including Iraq, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, and Jordan. In the long run, potential in the Middle East is huge because: – relatively low per capita consumption ( <20 kg) – population is projected to increase from million in 2010 to million in 2020 and million in – Per capita real income is projected to increase at an average annual rate of 2.8 percent. – Domestic production is not competitive due to shortage of water, dependence on imports of feed grains, and halal regulations.

Opportunities in South Korea Poultry shipments to South Korea in the near term are expected to grow at a double-digit rate. In the long run, potential in South Korea is high because: – relatively low per capita consumption ( 15 kg) – per capita real income is projected to increase at an average annual rate of 3.6 percent throughout – domestic production is not competitive due to shortage of water and heavy dependence on imports of feed grains. – implementation of the KORUS FTA will result in expanded U.S. poultry exports both because of higher Korean poultry import demand and market share gains from other exporter competitors in the market.

Opportunities in Other Markets Ghana, Gabon, Congo, Nigeria, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, etc. Potential In these markets are high in the long run because: – low per capita consumption (e.g. India <3 kg, Indonesia < 4 kg). – large and upwardly mobile population. – Per capita real GDP is predicted to increase at relatively faster throughout – heavy dependence on imports of feed grains (except India). But the opportunities in the near term are limited due to either protectionism (e.g. India) or the halal regulations (e.g. Indonesia, Malaysia). USAPEEC has been working closely with the relevant government organizations both at home and abroad to strive towards goals of improved access with clear rules.
Despite many trade obstacles we are facing, we are still making progress on expanding export markets and our exports are continuing to grow. Biggest challenges are maintaining disease free status and persistent high feed and energy cost. In the long run, more people will eat more poultry meat as poultry efficiency in energy and feed conversion prevails. To feed the world ’ s ever-growing population, we must Change our food policies, such as food for fuel. Fight EU-style regulatory environment: animal welfare, cage-free, GMO’s, etc. Do a better job delivering our positive message to consumers and government. Support trade based on sound science, not political science. Conclusions
