“The work to harmonise veterinary and phytosanitary requirements with China, Middle Eastern countries and European countries is being carried out as part of the roadmap. In nine months of this year, the export of agricultural products to China increased 20 percent.” he said.
“In general, we should note the growth in exports of agricultural products to Saudi Arabia – 50 times compared with the same period last year.
Special focus should be put on the growth in export of agricultural products to European countries. In particular legume dried vegetables to European countries has increased,” he added.
The export of agricultural products to Southeast Asian and Middle Eastern countries has also increased, including a significant hike to Vietnam.
“The increase in exports to Turkey increased by half compared with the same period last year,” noted the press office.
