USAPEEC’s Jim Sumner and Greg Tyler met with Chinese embassy staff in Washington D.C. this past week to update them on U.S. poultry exports and to suggest steps that could be taken to improve exports, particularly from HPAI-stricken states.
The 90-minute meeting was positively received by the Chinese officials and they promised to address the issues which included a suggested revision for the trade restriction effective dates.
