China extends countervailing duties on U.S.

The Chinese Ministry of Commerce announced last week that it will extend the countervailing duties on imports of U.S. poultry for an additional five years.

The duties, which had been applied since 2011, were scheduled to expire in September. They are specific for 36 U.S. companies and range from 4.0 to 4.2 percent. The “all-others” rate, which applies to U.S. imports from companies other than those specified, is 4.2 percent. Effective date for the renewal of the duties is Aug. 30.

AEB EGG MISSION TO MEXICO

With a whirlwind of meetings and stops on a packed itinerary, last week’s first American Egg Board trade mission to Mexico brought U.S. and Mexican egg producers together for discussions on trade and cooperation. USAPEEC assisted with the logistics of the mission, led by AEB President Anne Alonzo, and attended by representatives of several U.S. egg companies and exporters. Cesar de Anda, former president of both the International Egg Commission and the Mexican Association of Poultry Processors, who is himself an egg producer in Guadalajara, greeted the U.S. group upon their arrival, and acted as Mexico’s egg ambassador during the mission. The group visited Guadalajara, center of the Mexican egg industry, and Mexico City.

Singapore lifts import restriction on Jasper County, Mo., products

Singapore has lifted its import restrictions on poultry originating in Jasper County, Mo., effective Aug. 23.

Notification came via a letter last week from Singapore’s Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority to the Manila office of the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. The ban had been in place since May, following a detection of low pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza in a Jasper County commercial turkey flock.

The Food Safety and Inspection Service’s Export Library has been revised accordingly, although AVA maintains bans on counties in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey because of LPAI detections in live bird markets in those states.
