INDONESIA - The Fisheries and Maritime Ministry will allow 84 local fish processing units (UPI) to export their products to China from 1 February 2009.

"We have proceeded to register 84 processing units after considering their qualifications in exporting to China. Besides those registered units, fish export to China by other units are regarded as illegal," the Indonesian Bisnis daily on Friday quoted the Ministry's Director for Standardization and Accreditation Nazori A Djazuli as saying.

The regulation is a follow-up to the agreement between the two countries to supervise fisheries trade and export to China. Qualifications were made by the Ministry to maintain the quality standard and food security for Chinese markets.

According to Nazori, before the registration process, the 84 UPIs have already exported fisheries products to China. Most of them base in West Java, Central Java and East Java.
