"This information is true, but the State Food Safety and Consumer Protection Service has not yet officially received it. This is about lifting the ban on importing poultry and poultry products to China," the authority said.
The authority explained that China banned imports of Ukrainian poultry products in 2005-2006 over the avian influenza.
"In fact, the lifting of the ban is one of the prerequisites for opening the market and not the resumption of supplies of Ukrainian poultry and poultry products to China. Until now, Ukraine has not exported these products to China," the authority said.
As reported, the State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety and Consumers Protection expects that in 2019-2020, markets in 24 countries for Ukrainian poultry products will be opened.
As we reported earlier, Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers prolonged the decree that provides import duties for Russian goods for another year until December 31, 2019 – the reduced rates of import duties for Russian goods are set by Ukraine’s customs tariffs.
