Vietnam, Philippines to discuss poultry meat trade


Poultry meat trade is among the topics up for discussion between Vietnam's Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh and the Philippine Secretary of Foreign Affairs Perfecto Yasay. Both have agreed to hasten the approval of the Vietnam-Philippines action program for 2017-2022 to forge stronger bilateral cooperation.

Mr Yasay vowed to consider creating favourable conditions for Vietnam’s poultry meat, vegetable and fruit to be sold in the Philippines. Both parties have pledged to urge agencies of each country to implement agreements and enhance the efficiency of existing partnership mechanisms. In January the Philippines banned all imported poultry products from South Korea, Germany, France and the Netherlands due to the outbreak of avian influenza.
