Exports for first half of 2015 decline by 14%

With the release of trade data for the first half of the year last week by the Foreign Agricultural Service, the impact of avian influenza on U.S. poultry and egg exports continues to become more apparent.

The combined value of U.S. poultry and egg for January through June fell by 13.8 percent from the same period in 2014 to $2.4054 billion, a decline in value of $386.3 million, according to the FAS data.

Vietnam dumping talk continues

USAPEEC denied reports last week that U.S. poultry products are being dumped on the Vietnamese market.

The accusations came from two regional Vietnamese animal husbandry associations who urged the Ministry of Industry and Trade’s Vietnam Competition Agency (VCA) to begin antidumping actions with the World Trade Organization against U.S. chicken imports.

Working with Foreign Agricultural Service officials in Hanoi, USAPEEC responded by issuing a press release to the Vietnamese media denying the dumping allegations and noting that the poultry industry has regularly and actively supported the Vietnamese poultry industry’s development since 2005.

Some nations ease AI restrictions

With the last reported detection of highly pathogenic avian influenza in a commercial flock occurring in mid-June, and with many affected farms cleaned and disinfected, the AI ban clock is winding down in many countries around the world.

Just last week, several countries either rescinded or revised their import restrictions on U.S. poultry and egg products. All changes are reflected in the Export Library.

First, Singapore removed restrictions on seven states, effective Aug. 6. States affected are Montana, Kansas, Arkansas, California, Idaho, Washington and Oregon, according to a letter from the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority to USDA.
