The Ministry of Commerce responded to imported dairy products in the domestic market: impact difference at home and abroad – Beijing, Beijing, 20 September Xinhua news website of the Ministry of Commerce, the Ministry of Commerce held a regular press conference today, spokesman Shen Danyang talked about "the impact of imported dairy products in the domestic market" said that due to differences in raw material prices, the cost of breeding and production efficiency etc. all kinds of dairy products, the use of domestic raw milk processing cost is higher than the imported products. In addition, consumer confidence in domestic dairy products is still slightly insufficient, consumers are more willing to choose imported products, especially imported infant formula milk powder. At the press conference, a reporter asked: "there are reports that the international milk prices continue to decline, compared with the domestic raw milk prices are more competitive, leading to the expansion of dairy imports, the impact of the domestic market, the Ministry of Commerce on this point of view?"" Shen Danyang introduced, according to customs statistics, in the first 7 months of this year, China’s imports of dairy products is 1 million 383 thousand tons, an increase of 29.1%; imports amounted to $3 billion 960 million, an increase of 13.5%. The import of dairy products has increased greatly both in import and import amount. There are three main reasons: first, low import base in the same period last year. In 2015, due to the economic downturn, consumption reduction, the domestic dairy inventories increased, imports decreased significantly. Due to the low base last year, the import volume and import amount increased significantly this year. However, if compared with the same period in 2014, it still declined slightly (1 million 385 thousand tons and 6 billion 130 million dollars) in the same period of 2014. Two is the big difference at home and abroad. In the first 7 months, China’s imports of dairy products fell by an average of 12%. Due to the differences in raw material price, breeding cost and production efficiency, the cost of dairy products processed by domestic raw milk is higher than that of imported products. Three is the consumer confidence in the domestic dairy products is slightly insufficient. Since the melamine incident, domestic consumers lack confidence in the quality of domestic dairy products still exist, so some consumers are more willing to choose imported products, especially imported infant formula milk powder. Shen Danyang said, dairy products belong to free trade products, import depends mainly on market demand and domestic similar products competitiveness. To solve the problems faced by the dairy industry in our country, we need to combine the long and short, comprehensive policy, change the mode of development, improve the quality of products, enhance consumer confidence, improve the overall competitiveness of the industry. The Ministry of Commerce will further strengthen the import monitoring of dairy products, pay close attention to the trend of import and price changes of dairy products, timely release relevant information, and guide enterprises to import in a reasonable and orderly manner.
商务部回应进口乳制品冲击国内市场：国内外差价大-中新网 中新网9月20日电 据商务部网站消息，商务部今日举行例行发布会，新闻发言人沈丹阳谈及“进口乳制品冲击国内市场”时表示，由于原料价格、养殖成本和生产效率等方面的差异，使用国内原奶加工的各种乳制品的成本高于进口同类产品。此外，消费者对国产乳制品信心还稍显不足，消费者更愿意选择进口产品，特别是进口婴幼儿配方奶粉。 在发布会上，有记者问及：“有报道称，国际奶价持续走低，与国内原料奶价格相比更具有竞争力，导致乳制品进口规模扩大，冲击了国内市场，请问商务部对此有何看法？” 沈丹阳介绍，据海关统计，今年前7个月我国进口乳制品是138.3万吨，同比增长29.1%；进口总额39.6亿美元，同比增长13.5%。无论是进口量还是进口金额，乳制品进口都有较大幅度的增长。主要原因有三个： 一是去年同期进口基数比较低。2015年，受经济下行、消费减少影响，国内乳品库存增多，进口量明显下降。由于去年基数较低，今年的进口量和进口金额增幅比较明显。但是，如果跟2014年同期相比仍略有下降(2014年同期进口138.5万吨、61.3亿美元)。 二是国内外差价大。前7个月我国进口的乳制品价格平均降低了12%。由于原料价格、养殖成本和生产效率等方面的差异，使用国内原奶加工的各种乳制品的成本高于进口同类产品。 三是消费者对国产乳制品信心还稍显不足。自三聚氰胺事件发生后，国内消费者对国内乳制品质量信心不足的问题还存在，所以有的消费者更愿意选择进口产品，特别是进口婴幼儿配方奶粉。 沈丹阳表示，乳制品属于自由贸易项下的产品，进口主要取决于市场需求和国内同类产品的竞争力。要解决我国乳制品行业面临的问题，需要长短结合，综合施策，转变发展方式，提高产品质量，增强消费者信心，提高行业整体竞争力。商务部将进一步加强乳制品进口监测，密切关注乳制品进口走势和价格变动情况，及时发布相关信息，引导企业合理有序进口。相关的主题文章：
