China-Malaysia Bird Nest Export Agreement

On 22 September 2012, China and Malaysia have set their respective hands on the Bird Nest Export Agreement in Nanning, Guangxi Province, People’s Republic of China.

Following the ceremony, there are still works to be done before processed bird nests can be practically exported to China.

The Bird Nest Export Agreement only involves processed bird nest. It does not include unprocessed bird nest which accounts for 95% of the bird nest products of Malaysia.

There are many importers from China waiting for China and Malaysia to formalize the export agreement. They intend to import bird nest from Malaysia once the agreement was signed.

The mid-autumn festival is over now. We can only hope to export the bird nests to China before the Chinese Lunar New Year.

Considering bird nest made from the swiftlet saliva, it is such a rare product that people from China are looking for.

There is no question on the demand on bird nest. We must strive to clear whatever obstacle like RFID system which will definitely bog down the export of bird nest to China particularly.
