German poultry exports to China resumed

Chinese authorities decided to resume poultry imports from Germany after the products were banned due to a bird flu outbreak, informs Reuters.
"The Chinese side has come to the conclusion that there is no reason for concern", declared German agriculture minister Julia Kloeckner during a Germany/China government summit in Berlin.
The German part is also interested in securing pork access to China in the event of an African Swine Fever outbreak in the country. The disease has spread to Eastern and Central Europe in the last 4 years and threatens to enter Germany in the next period of time.
Kloeckner declared that she also pressed China not to impose a complete ban on German pork should the African swine fever disease be found in the country, but to take a more regional view of the problem.
A computerized simulation of how the disease was spreading in Poland and neighbouring countries shows that in the next four years ASF will probably be present on German soil. China is one of Germany’s largest markets for meat exports, especially pork.
