Taiwan temporarily allows Chinese corn

10-10-2007 | |

The Taiwan Ministry of Economic Affairs said it has temporarily lifted a ban on corn imports used as animal feed from mainland China to meet demand.

The ban, previously imposed as a measure to contain inflation, was lifted
from Oct 1, 2007 but imports of China-made corn feed will be allowed only until
March 31, 2008, according to a statement of the ministry.

Other measures
in place to curb inflation included a demand for government-owned industries to
scale down their exports of raw materials.

The government has said it
will seek measures to meet domestic demand for raw
materials.
