Spanish and Chinese ministers held a meeting in early November to discuss establishing and expanding direct poultry, pig and fruit trade between Spain and China.

Currently, Spanish poultry producers sell via Taiwan; however, the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture has said that the country’s producers would like to establish a direct link with mainland China. Currently, 87 Spanish producers export to Asia, said the ministry.

During the meeting, it was also agreed that the two countries need to establish a high-level veterinary group to increase knowledge and facilitate trade in live animals and products of animal origin.
