Stocks for meat exports will continue in 2022 More strict: Quantities to be exported abroad Will be reduced by 25% compared to this year, According to the draft received Link table Guided by the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Julian Dominguez.
“2021 will almost certainly end with 800 thousand tons Exported and intended by the government 600 thousand tonss “, he drew accounts George Chems, President of the Argentine Rural Federation (CRA) based on a proposal by MAGyP.
The calculation is based on the facts recommended by the Ministry “Hilton Allocation, 481, guarantees exports to the United States, Israel, Colombia and Chile, and guarantees exports of 1 million cows and bulls of type D and E.”
That indicates the plan To prolong the situation Currently, it has been in effect since May 20th. The good numbers for the first months of 2021 will be “lost” in the 2022 figures., Which showed a monthly average of 75,000 tons of bone beef.
In the second half of this year, exports fell due to stocks. Restrictions were first fully established, then with a 50% approved basis, with further mentioned exceptions. As a result, the volume dropped to 50,000 tonnes in June and July. Meanwhile, an average of 65,000 tons per month between August and October.
The monthly evolution of meat exports, starting in June this year, is lower than the volume shipped in 2020 due to the stock.
In that sense, if the current plan is maintained throughout the next year, Exports will reflect a quarterly decline over this year’s volume.
This opportunity did not satisfy the Liaison Board It will counter-offer to release all but the 7 most consumed cuts in the domestic market (Strip roast, frying pan, skirt, modembray, vacuum, square and shoulder; make first 5 grills and last 2 millennials).
“We firmly believe in it There will be no shortage of meatThat is why we propose to open up exports en masse, ”he said Clarion President of Sociedad Rural Argentina (SRA) Nicholas Pino. “Our country produces 3 million tonnes of beef a year, which allows us to achieve a per capita consumption of 115 kg of animal protein per year, including chickens and pigs,” he argued.
The main meeting next week
Regarding possible protests, Pino said he would hold a positive meeting with Dominguez, who will receive the link schedule at 5:00 pm on Thursday 9th. In the Ministry to seek consensus solutions.
In negotiations with the government – with the exception of 7 popular courts – they are seeking the inclusion of the approval of other chambers of the department in the annexation table to block the public release proposal.
In fact, the government’s proposal proposes a creation Consulting advice, It was chaired by Minister Dominguez, with the participation of representatives of Mesa de Enlace and other organizations of the livestock and meat chain, including slaughterers and exporters.
Despite the criticism, Pino expressed a desire to join the Monitoring Commission. “We meet every 3 months, for example – he suggested – and go check, but important Creating confidence and providing profitable and predictable conditions for the government to continue to operate at will and increase productivity.
For now that proposal is unreliable
The official draft proposes Keep the current “managed export” plan, With subtle changes to the current situation, urges more funding to increase productivity, “through Banco Nation and Banco de la Provincia de Buenos Aires, with significant credit for raising livestock, with rates subsidized. Ministry.
In addition, MAGyP “provides tax incentives for the development of federal, inclusive, sustainable and export agro-industrial development, along with draft legislation for the development and increase of slaughterhouses.”
Carlos Acetoni, The President of the Agricultural Association commented “Financial stimulus does not apply with the plan to freeze or reduce farm prices as a result of export regulation.. For this reason, we look at how another project can be agreed upon.
For now, it looks like one Conversation without background comprehension, Table of Contacts with Manufacturers Aside from the price control section covered by the Secretary of Home Affairs Roberto Felletti At the other pole. Minister Domínguez is located in the middle Now, he seems to have a better conversation with the private sector than a government official who is committed to managing inflation.
In this regard, Pino praised his “pragmatism for showing how to deal with problems”. In the same vein, Chemes shared an exhibition with Domínguez in Santa Cruz, and Feletti agreed with the Minister on rejecting the proposed suspension increase.
But There are two short-sighted views on government. Feletti’s tax considers that the way to control meat inflation is to control or increase exports, while Domínguez seeks deals with meat baking plants to avoid rising prices, such as passports for exports to Argentine consumers.
No one dares to predict whether the focus on price control in the domestic market will prevail or whether production, employment and exports will stifle the dollar.
