Live chicken import

expected to rise in HK

One thousand live chickens from the Chinese mainland are made available for sale at Hong Kong’s wet markets on Wednesday of February 11, marking the end of a 21-day suspension of poultry imports from the Chinese mainland.

Ma Ping-lung, vice-chairman of Poultry Dealers and Workers Association, said he believes the move was mainly for testing cross border procedures. Ma expected the chicken supply to increase gradually in the next few days.

He said the wholesale and retail prices haven’t changed on Wednesday. The retail price for live chickens ranges from 45 to 55 HK dollars per catty.

Ma said the prices may go up by 20 percent during the Lunar New Year period, which he said was cheaper than previous years.

Hong Kong last month culled around 15,000 chickens at a poultry market in Cheung Sha Wan after some birds were found to be infected with bird flu. The authorities also suspended imports from the Chinese mainland for three weeks. (1 U.S. dollar equals 7. 75 HK dollars)

    Everything wrote was actually very logical. But, what about this?
    what if you added a little content? I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t good,
    but suppose you added a title to possibly
    get people’s attention? I mean Read China » Live chicken import expected to rise in HK is a little
    boring. You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how
    they create news titles to grab viewers to click. You might add a video or a picture or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve got
    to say. Just my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.
