China eyes imported bangus from the Philippines
Agriculture Undersecretary for Fisheries Eduardo Gongona said China is interested to import bangus or milkfish from the Philippines.
Gongona said that during a recent bilateral meeting between China and the Philippines, the government officials of the East Asian country said they are keen to explore more partnerships on fisheries sector with the Philippines, including a possible bangus importation.
“We are introducing bangus there. It is still not in their menu, but they really, really want it,” Gongona said in a Manila Bulletin report.
The Philippines have already been exporting bangus to other countries.
Chinese officials, together with some companies interested to import bangus from here, will go to the Philippines within this year to further discuss this plan, Gongona further said in the report.
