China suspends Canadian pork imports in move seen as ongoing retaliation for arrest of Huawei CFO
In June 2019, China announced a suspension of Canadian pork and beef imports. Officially, the ban was justified by the discovery of a banned additive and by falsified export certificates for some products. However, the move has more commonly been viewed as retaliation for Canada’s 2018 arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou. In November 2019, China allowed sales to resume, but estimates of the loss for Canadian industry have ranged from $100 million to nearly $500 million.
