China open to Indian farm & poultry products
China will soon be opening its market to Indian agriculture and poultry
exports. China and India together have 1.5 billion farmers.
India's commerce and industry minister Kamal Nath: â€œChina's agriculture is
only 10% of their GDP, whereas ours is 24% of our GDP. They are major importers
of agri-products. We are working with the Chinese government to ensure that in
the next couple of months, they open up their markets to our agriculture and
During his recent visit to China, the minister asked the Chinese
agriculture minister to remove restrictions (like sanitary and phyto sanitary
measures) on farm sector imports from India.
China currently imports a major portion of food products from countries
like New Zealand, which are unable to meet their demand. According to the
minister, India would be a leading farm products exporter.
