NTF believes today’s notice regarding the importation of cooked chicken from China is an essential first step in the process of restoring normal exports of U.S. turkey, and all poultry to China.  In 2013, the U.S. exported more than $70 million worth of turkey meat to China, but that trade has been suspended for more than two years now.

The process that begins today needs to be completed as soon as possible so that normal trade between our countries can resume.
