Turkey to resume dairy exports to China



Turkey's exports of milk and other dairy products to China will continue, Trade Minister Ruhsar Pekcan said on Thursday, Reuters reported.


Furthermore, 54 Turkish companies will be able to export to China, Pekcan added.


In February, Turkey temporarily halted imports of livestock and animal fats from China over the COVID-19 outbreak. In a tweet, Pekcan said she welcomed the Chinese dairy market opening to Turkish exporters, after Chinese authorities deemed Turkey an exportable country.
