Chisinau, 13 October /MOLDPRES/ - Moldova has got permission to export planting material of nut-trees to the European Union member states. The National Food Safety Agency (ANSA) on 12 October recommended that interested people start negotiations with partners, in order to establish commercial relations on the delivery of the concerned product to the European Union.
„Following the amendments made to the European Union’s legislation, the import from Moldova of grafted plants and of mother/father plants of up to two years, with naked roots, in vegetative repose, without leaves, of Juglans regia L. (nut-tree) is allowed,’’ the Agriculture and Food Industry Ministry said.
In last August, Moldova got the right to export apple (Malus domestica) planting material to the European Union in the next three years.
The getting of the right to export planting material of apple and nut-tree to the European Union was due to an efficient cooperation, at the technical level, between ANSA and the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety, through the light of numerous exchanges of information and technical discussions with European experts.
