South Korea ready to export chicken to Hong Kong

09.11.2017

South Korean poultry farms will be able to export chickens to Hong Kong, one year after sales were banned due to a widespread outbreak of avian influenza (AI), according to the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.

The ministry said Hong Kong notified Seoul of its decision to lift the import ban after the two sides agreed on quarantine measures recently. The latest decision comes after Seoul acquired the AI clean status October 13 and notified OIE that it is free of the contagious disease.
