Representatives of the National Fisheries and Aquaculture Service (Sernapesca) and authorities of the Republic of China signed a memorandum of understanding with the aim of strengthening the relation between the two nations and the guarantees of sanitary safety of the fishery products.

This agreement will smooth the exchange of information between the agencies responsible for ensuring the health status of the fishery products that are imported and exported: Sernapesca in Chile and the General Administration of Quality Supervision and Quarantine (AQSIQ) in China.

These entities will be able to set joint working groups to standardize inspection protocols, perform quarantine requirements and conduct exchanges of technology and professional training. Besides, mutual consultation will be made easier regarding the requirements associated with the import and export of resources, among other issues.

Moreover, Chile and China would share information on chemical waste, hazardous substances and diseases affecting aquatic animals, among other aspects of the trade of these products.

"We promise that, before modifying any regulations or adopting new regulations affecting the established procedures, each party must inform the other one and provide acceptable transition periods," the national director of Sernapesca, Ana Maria Urrutia, stated.

The official stressed that the memorandum of understanding was made possible thanks to the continuous work performed by the competent authorities of both countries, in the framework of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) signed two years ago.

"In fact, in July a delegation headed by national director [Juan Luis Ansoleaga] visited China to become aware of its sanitary procedures and regulations, an event that was very beneficial for both parties, and which formed the basis of the memorandum that we are to sign here," Urrutia pointed out.

According to the deputy director of AQSIQ, Lin Wei, Chilean products such as wine and fruit have a high reputation in China, "and in recent years the Chilean fishery products have also found a very good reception, especially salmon."

Meanwhile, the Foreign Trade Deputy Director of Sernapesca, Cecilia Solis, said the two sides will establish a technical working group to coordinate cooperation in the area of control of fishery product imports and exports, and anticipated that a pilot project will be conducted with chilled salmon.

Stressing that China is the country’s biggest trading partner, she ensured: "This type of agreements is of great importance, given the new consumers who could access the chilled salmon as culturally they prefer this type of presentation rather than the frozen one, such as what happens with Japan."
