Germany asks China to resume poultry imports

After an outbreak of bird flu disease in Germany and a ban for poultry imports, China has agreed in principle to reopen its market to German poultry since July this year but no shipment has been delivered yet.
Now, Germany wants to urge the negotiations in order to start poultry exports to the Chinese market in the first quarter of 2019. Junior German agriculture minister Hermann Onko Aeikens said in a statement that the process to reopen China's market to German poultry had been made possible as China has lifted bird flu import restrictions. German agriculture minister Julia Kloeckner will travel to China next year to assess the status of negotiations, Aeikens said, according to Successful Farming magazine.
China is one of the biggest markets for German animal protein products, especially pork, and the consumption of all types of meat is growing fast.
