Ahead of British Trade Secretary Liam Fox’s visit to Thailand, the Thai government has lifted its ban on poultry products from the United Kingdom.
The move is considered as a welcome to United Kingdom as they have already announced a bird flu free farms in September 2017. Trade secretary’s visit is also a highlight as it took 15 years before a British official visited Thailand.
Both countries will be sealing deals and bilateral trades. The United Kingdom will be helping Thailand improve its technology through digital and financial assistance.
“We are delighted that our joint efforts have culminated in the International Trade Secretary’s visit to Thailand and the successful opening of trade that will bolster the UK as a world hub for high-value poultry genetics, drive efficiency and strengthen our supply chains,” Richard Griffiths, chief executive of the British Poultry Council said
