Sri Lanka looks to export fisheries and aquatic products to China

Sri Lanka is looking to export fisheries and aquatic products to China, the Sri Lankan Embassy in China said.

The Embassy said that the Health Certificate for importing fisheries products to China has been approved by the General Administration Customs of China (GACC).

It will enable the approved fisheries and aquatic products to enter this lucrative market, and even encourage Sri Lankan businesses to expand their production.

The renewed Health Certificate must be presented to the Chinese Customs with their products from the 1 July 2021 by the fisheries product exporters from Sri Lanka to China.

All processed Fisheries products exporters are required to use this updated version instead of the old certificate.

The Embassy said that 120 copies of the new certificate must be provided urgently as samples to the GACC. The Embassy of Sri Lanka in Beijing says it will assist in this regard.

The Commercial Section of the Embassy has been working closely with the General Administration Customs of China (GACC) to assist Sri Lankan fish exports to access the booming Chinese market. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. All China does is acting as the middle man. Usually the middle man makes the largest profit. China will process them and export (some back to us) with the label ‘Product of China’. It is sad that we do not make use of the people here to process and export a quality product.
