At the most recent session of the Government of Serbia, decisions were adopted which secure one of the key preconditions for the placement of fresh blueberries and dried plums in the market of the People’s Republic of China, announced the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management.

– The government also adopted the decision on the prevention and control of the avian influenza, which is the most important precondition for the export of poultry meat from Serbia to the Chinese market – the competent ministry says in the announcement.

The adoption of these decisions, as they emphasize at the Ministry of Agriculture, is another precondition for Serbia to have as many agricultural and food products which can be exported to the Chinese market free of duty on the date the Free Trade Agreement with China comes into effect.

Let us remind that, last autumn, the minister of trade of Serbia, Tomislav Momirovic, stated that Serbia counted on the agreement finally coming into effect in June and that the true effects would become apparent at the end of 2024.

He said at the time that the agreement encompassed 10,412 Serbian products for which the customs fees would be removed in the next period, as well as 8,930 products on the Chinese side.

As it was pointed out last autumn, among other things, on the date the agreement comes into effect, Serbia will be able to export to China, free of duty, fresh fruit, meat and vegetable products, jams, beer and water. Those products make up 60% of the list of the domestic agricultural and food products that Serbia has applied for customs fee removal. Among other things, oil plants and mineral water also belong in that group.
