Representatives from the Ukraine and China have signed a document to promote mutual trade in poultry meat.

The memorandum of understanding (MOU), was signed by Ukraine’s chairman of State Committee for Industrial and Consumer Services Volodymyr Lap, and China’s chief customs officer during a meeting in Ningbo, in China’s Zhejiang province last week.

The signing of the MOU will ensure mutual exchange of information on topics such as export achievements between the countries, as well as how they plan to prevent and control avian influenza and other poultry diseases.

The agreement will allow both countries to conduct risk assessments and negotiating inspections and sanitary requirements for poultry meat trade.

Lap believes the deal will strengthen the Eastern European country’s bilateral trade with the People’s Republic of China.

"This Memorandum will open new opportunities for diversification of the Ukrainian poultry market and increase the competitiveness of Ukrainian food products on world markets​,” said Lap. “This will have a positive impact on the image of Ukraine as a reliable trading partner and will contribute to the development of the economy of our country​.”

China has opened up doors for meat trade to several key international markets in recent months including Canada​, Ireland​ and Thailand​.

Meanwhile, Ukraine is slowly beginning to get back on track​ in meat processing after previously experiencing a production crisis across the country over the past few years.

According to GlobalMeatNews’ State of the Industry​ report, Germany was one of the main targets for Ukraine for importing poultry meat.
