Protestors to stand down while Chinese inspectors visit Cahir ABP


Protestors who have been demonstrating outside the ABP plant in Cahir have agreed to halt temporarily the picket while Chinese officials inspect the factory.

Chinese inspectors are visiting a number of plants across the country over the next couple of weeks with a view to possibly giving them the approval to export to China.

There were concerns that demonstrations outside the plants may have a negative impact on Beijing’s decision.

However, protestors outside the ABP processing plant in Cahir have agreed to lift their protests from midday today (Thursday) until eight o’clock this evening.
