David Cameron used his trip to China this week to help push through a deal with the Chinese government that opens the way for Britain to begin selling material for artificial insemination early next year, as part of his wide-ranging push to encourage bilateral trade between the two countries.

China is the world’s largest producer and consumer of pork. The government believes the deal could be worth up to £45m a year to British companies, in combination with live pig exports, although some industry experts say the figure could be substantially less. British companies are currently prevented from exporting pig semen under Chinese biological safety rules.
