China Welcomes Japan's Partial Lift of Poultry Import BanChina welcomes a Japanese decision to partially lift its import ban on Chinese chicken and turkey meat, and fowl eggs starting Tuesday, a government spokesperson said, responding to the Japanese move the same day.
The Japanese move "is conducive to the resumption and development of the poultry trade between the two countries, which has been suspended for two months," said Gao Yan, spokesperson for China's Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation.
The Japanese import ban, based solely on a test result from the Republic of Korea, has led to tremendous losses for the Chinese poultry industry, she said.
Gao expressed the hope that Japanese government agencies concerned will, in the spirit of maintaining overall trade relations between the two countries and with an scientific attitude, strengthen cooperation with their Chinese counterparts for the complete settlement of other remaining issues relating to the poultry trade.
She reiterated that facts have shown that the Chinese government has established an effective prevention and quarantine mechanism against bird-flu, and no bird-flu epidemics of a high health hazard have been found in China.
