Description
The standard setting bodies of China and Ukraine agreed on a sanitary and biosafety protocol that will govern future exports of Ukrainian sunflowerseed cake to China.
Notes
In September, Ukraine and China signed a protocol on storage, packaging, labeling, quarantine and sanitary/phytosanitary requirements for importing Ukrainian sunflower meal into China. Adding China to its list of buyers is expected to raise Ukraine’s exports to Asia, both through direct sales to China and likely re-exports to other countries in the region.
