Taiwan to export pork to Philippines


Taiwan will be exporting fresh pork to the Philippines.


According to the officials of Taiwan's Council of Agriculture, strong local demand in the Philippines made it a potential export market. An initial plan to export pork to Singapore has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic but negotiations with Manila are in progress.


Between January 2020 and November 2020, Hong Kong is the main destination for Taiwanese pork at 1,759 tonnes valued at US$12.4 million. Macau came in second at 308 tonnes, followed by Japan at 256 tonnes.
