Health Status Gives Export Boost

12 November 2012

MEXICO - National Confederation of Livestock President Oswaldo Montalvo and Ministry coordinator Everado Padilla claims that the country's health status means opportunities are available for exporting meat.

Mr Montalvo and Mr Padilla say that the countries producers benefit from this due to global trade currently being bouyant.

Due to Mexico's health status being so crucial for this vital trade the Ministry sees no reason why efforts to maintain this healthy livestock status should be questioned.

Cházaro Montalvo said the strong demand for Mexican beef abroad is aided by new markets in the Middle East which is a contributing factor in the favourable prices for producers.

At the inauguration of the IX National Livestock 2012, the president of the CNOG said the farming should be supported and trusted to facilitate rural development and ensure food security.

This notion, he said, supported agriculutural policy in the country for the short and long term. At the inauguration the President conluded that the agircultural policy faces multiple challenges namely; the new conditions of globalization, climate change and the market economy.
