THAILAND, HUNGARY SIGN AGREEMENT ON POULTRY SALES

 

In the case of a bird flu epidemic, Thailand has agreed to ban poultry imports only from infected areas of Hungary rather than resort to a blanket measure, the farm ministry said. The agreement was initiated by Hungary’s chief veterinarian Lajos Bognár after the 2016-2017 bird flu epidemic in Hungary.

Under the agreement, Thailand will accept the guarantees provided by Hungary’s veterinary authorities, giving Hungarian poultry exporters an edge over their European rivals. Not long ago Hungary concluded a similar agreement based on the principle of regionalisation with Japan, the ministry said.
