Lithuania to export poultry to South Korea and beef to Taiwan

Kstutis Navickas, Lithuania's Agriculture Minister, said there is significant room for the expansion of trade ties between Taiwan, South Korea, and Lithuania, adding that the coordinated new export permits would increase trade volumes and provide more opportunities for businesses in the food industry.
