Port-au-Prince and Santo Domingo agree on poultry imports
Santo Domingo.- The Agriculture ministries of Dominican Republic and Haiti on Thursday agreed on a procedure on trade of poultry products between the two countries, in the aftermath of the second high level talks held at the border town of Jimaní.
The agreement lifts Haiti’s ban on Dominican poultry products upon certifications and inspections by veterinary services.
It calls for the protocol on sanitary, phytosanitary and animal health measures which expedite trade with poultry products from countries, by mandatory notifications that zones or pens are free of bird flu.
This protocol specifies the conditions which eggs for human consumption and fertile for incubation, poultry and fresh poultry meat must comply with.
