I know that these values are recognized by the Chinese consumers – with these words the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Krzysztof Jurgiel, promoted the Polish food in the largest Chinese TV station – CCTV in Kunming. The event was attended by more than 500 representatives of the Chinese authorities, entrepreneurs and journalists.

Poland, as one of the very few countries participating in the 14th China International Agricultural Trade Fair, took its opportunity to familiarize the Chinese audience with the advantages of its food.

Highly popular apples are one of the key Polish products promoted during the Kunming fair. Minister Jurgiel reminded that the Polish apples were appreciated by Xi Jinping, President of the People’s Republic of China, who tasted them during his this-year visit to Poland. The Minister of Agriculture added that export of agri-food products has been currently one of the key development areas of Polish – Chinese economic and trade exchange.
