CORRESPONDENCE – ECOPOLITIC’s special correspondent, Iulian Ionescu, reports: Alexandru Nicolae Bociu, President of ANSVSA (National Sanitary Veterinary and Food Safety Authority) told ECOPOLITIC exclusively that during the official visit of Prime Minister Marcel Ciolacu to Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed with Qatar on veterinary quarantine and animal exports and in the United Arab Emirates, in the last two years, the export of sheep, cattle and poultry has increased.

„One of the main objectives of ANSVSA’s mandate has been to open new export markets. We have managed in the last two and a half years to open up exports with the US, where we have managed to take raw-dried and canned products, the first exports have already arrived and people are very happy with them. We are succeeding in opening up exports of sheep and cattle with Morocco, Algeria, Vietnam for poultry and cereals, and Indonesia for cereals,” said the head of ANSVSA.

Memorandum of Understanding with Qatar on animal health quarantine and exports

The President of ANSVSA says that during this visit, he signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Qatar on veterinary quarantine and animal exports.

„In other words, we are succeeding from the moment we signed the memorandum to open up exports on all sheep meat, beef and poultry. It’s a new market for Romanian farmers and farmers,” says Alexandru Nicolae Bociu.

„In the United Arab Emirates, in the last two years we have managed to increase exports of sheep, beef and poultry. These are our main objectives.
The more export markets we manage to open up, the better things work for our country and the fact that veterinary export certificates are approved shows that the veterinary and food safety services are reliable services for external partners.
ANSVSA benefits from the strongest laboratory network in Europe

The head of ANSVSA says ANSVSA benefits from the strongest laboratory network in Europe. This ensures that the products that reach the consumer’s table are safe and fit for consumption.

There has been a lot of disagreement in the media about salmonella and yellow chicken. Through the control programmes that ANSVSA collects from each establishment where products of this kind are sold, all we do is make sure, through laboratory examinations, that the products put on the consumer’s table are safe products, and in this way I really want to send a message to consumers, that they should only buy products from registered and veterinary-authorised establishments”, says the President of ANSVSA.
On the sidelines of the visit to Qatar, the Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation in the field of veterinary quarantine, import and export of live animals and poultry free of contagious and epidemic diseases was signed between the Ministry of Municipality of the State of Qatar and the National Veterinary Health and Food Safety Authority of Romania).

After the signing of this memorandum, live cattle, live sheep, live poultry, beef, sheep/goat meat, poultry and dairy products can be exported from Romania to Qatar on the basis of bilaterally agreed veterinary health certificates.
