BEIJING/TIANJIN, China (Reuters) - China's finance minister and leading economists on Sunday voiced concerns about Britain's vote to leave the European Union, with the policymaker saying it has heightened market uncertainty, though some expect a limited impact on the Chinese economy. The "Brexit" decision "will cast a shadow over the global economy... The repercussions and fallout will emerge in the next five to 10 years," said Lou Jiwei, China's Minister of Finance, at the first annual meeting of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank in Beijing.

Stock markets around the world plunged in the wake of the referendum while the Sterling's value also plummeted.

Last year the European Union finally got rid of its three-decade old milk production quotas that it had imposed to eliminate the milk lakes and butter mountains that had plagued the bloc's farmers in the 1980s. While farmers in several EU countries had been looking forward to tapping into rising demand for dairy products in developing countries, particularly in China, that growth slowed and there was soon a glut on the world market.
