Ren Yisheng, China’s Consul General to Thailand’s Chiang Mai, and Niwat Sutemechaikul, Deputy Secretary of Thailand’s Agriculture and Cooperatives Ministry, along with some 500 officials, businessmen from both countries attended a ceremony to mark the event at a port in Chiang Mai.

The trade between China and Thailand keeps growing steadily as China is now Thailand’s biggest trade partner and third largest source of investment, Ren said during the ceremony.

“China has been closely following the development of control systems of the poultry industry and devoted to approving the imported chicken from Thailand as early as possible,’’ Ren said.

He added that seven Thai companies have been approved to export frozen chicken meat to China again.

Niwat said chicken farming is an important industry of Thai economy and chicken meat accounts for 85 per cent of all kinds of meat exported to the world from the country.

Thailand has been upgrading its poultry farming system to make the exports meet international standards, he said.

Thailand commended China for the approval and expressed optimism that China could import more frozen chicken meat and processed chicken meat from Thailand in the future, Niwat said.

The Certification and Accreditation Administration of China approved the import of frozen chicken meat from Thailand earlier this month.
