Indian poultry gain access to Japanese market - INDIA - Indian poultry has gained access to Japan's market, according to K.S. Money, Chairman, Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority. This breakthrough came at a time when bird flu threatened neighbouring Asian countries.

Money said Japan was "one of the most sophisticated and the toughest market to crack" due to its high quality standards. But the country has recently allowed imports of Indian poultry products.

He also expressed optimism that bird flu was unlikely to affect India's poultry sector, which now had a "better chance of getting a bigger share of the world market."

Meanwhile, the World Bank (WB) has announced that it would grant between US$300 million and US$500 million soon, to help countries fight bird flu.
