In 2004, China banned importing poultry products from Thailand following the outbreak of bird flu disease in Thailand. Ren Yisheng, China’s consul general to Thailand said that China is closely monitoring the development of control systems of the chicken industry.

The chicken products come from the seven factories which are among the 19 factories that received green light from the Certification and Accreditation Administration of China to ship to the country in March 2018.

According to the industry experts, with the shipment of Thai poultry products to China, both the countries are looking forward to strengthening the business ties.

In Thailand, poultry farming is a major industry that adds much value to the country’s economic development, with chicken meat accounting for almost 85 per cent of total meat exported to the various international marketplaces.

Niwat Sutemechaikul, deputy secretary of Thailand's Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives, remarked that the far eastern Asian country is continuously upgrading its domestic chicken industry to meet the international standards.

In line with the Thai government’s initiative to export more poultry products, Thailand hopes to export more processed chicken meat to Asian as well as other international markets.
