Argentina has agreed to allow imports of U.S. pork products for the first time since 1992, the White House said in a statement on Thursday.
Argentina had blocked imports of U.S. pork, citing animal health concerns. The United States is the world's top pork exporter, and the agreement opens up a potential $10-million-per-year market for U.S. pork producers, the statement said.
The agreement follows a meeting between U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and Argentine President Mauricio Macri in Buenos Aires on Tuesday.
