U.S. blueberry exports allowed into China

China will allow imports of U.S. blueberries, according to a notice on its customs website.

The U.S. and China agreed to a massive trade deal in January, in which China would buy $20 billion in U.S. agriculture exports this year and next year.

But the COVID-19 outbreak has brought into question whether China will live up to its commitment.

Included in the announcement is U.S. imports of barley.

China is far from meeting the targets set in the trade agreement, according to analysis from the South China Morning Post.
