Argentina's President Travels To China To Lobby On Soy Exports

"Argentine president Cristina Fernández travelled to China to attempt to solve the soy oil controversy between the two countries. China had been blocking the commodity from entering the country in retaliation against anti-dumping measures that Argentina has applied against Chinese imports."

Following the trip, the Argentine Foreign Affairs Ministry expects shipments to China to start again in September 2010.

Argentina is the second largest producer of GM crops in the world, with a GM soybeans topping its exports.
