Belarus intends to start shipping poultry to China by the summer of 2018, Belarus Agriculture and Food Ministry leader Aleksei Bogdanov said.

Belarus has substantially increased its shipments of dairy products to China and has gained certification to export beef, Bogdanov said. There are now plans to certify Belarus poultry exports to China.

“I think we will fulfill this task by next summer and will then launch them,” Bogdanov said.

Belarus would like to target three main regions for poultry trade: Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Africa.


Earlier in 2017, Belarus reported another positive development in agricultural trade, as Bogdanov announced that exports of poultry meat and beef from Belarus to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) could begin later in 2017.
