Hong Kong to import Lithuanian poultry and dairy products
Hong Kong has agreed to import dairy and poultry products from Lithuania, with pork, beef and eggs likely to follow soon.
It also revealed that Hong Kong and Lithuania were finalizing agreements for the entry of Lithuanian pork, beef and eggs into the autonomous Chinese territory.
VMVT Director Jonas Milius further revealed that Lithuania received a certificate to exportpoultry products to Hong Kong two weeks ago.
The two governments had been negotiating for the entry of Lithuanian poultry and poultry products since two years ago.
Mr. Milius said major Lithuanian food producers have long wanted to enter the Hong Kong market, which they consider the gateway to the huge and lucrative mainland China market.
