Chisinau, 17 January /MOLDPRES/ - Agriculture, Regional Development and Environment Minister Ion Perju met Head of the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor) Sergey Dankvert on 16 January.
The officials agreed on establishing a direct mechanism of coordinating the actions between the National Food Safety Agency (ANSA) and Rosselkhoznadzor, on mutually extending the lists of exporters. The sides stressed the clear-cut mechanism of extending the number of exporting companies from Moldova by 200 till late January 2020.
”Since the taking over of the minister mandate, I took responsibility to increase the number of the companies from Moldova able to export to Russia. Along with the ministry’s team, we make efforts to protect the interests of the native producers and exporters. We expect the list’s extension by over 200 companies producing fruits and vegetables, without hitting in any way the current list of exporting companies, or this is a completion of the previous list,” Ion Perju said.
At the same time, at the bilateral meeting, the partners from Russia proposed to the Moldovan side support to develop ANSA’s institutional capacities through exchange of experience for the local inspectors, organization and holding of trainings and training courses to this end.
In December 2019, Ion Perju had a meeting with Agriculture Minister Dmitry Patrushev in Russia. The officials discussed subjects on improving the commercial relations with agro-food products between the two countries and adopted a string of actions and steps, which were undertaken by both sides.
The present meeting of Minister Ion Perju with the Rosselkhoznadzor head took place in Berlin, at the 12th Global Forum for Food and Agriculture.
