Kuwait bans exports of poultry
Kuwait's Ministry of Commerce and Industry has
announced a ban on the export of frozen chicken.
The aim of this ban, which is effective as of 1 August, is to ensure that
the relevant needs of the local market are met in full, and will remain in force
until further notice.
This move is reportedly a part of measures being taken by the ministry to
improve people's living conditions, and to combat the implications of soaring
Kuwaits's head of the ministry''s supply department Mohammed AlÙ€Enezi
reportedly vowed that the ministry would live up to its responsibility in this
respect, and stressed on the significance of meeting the needs of the local
market before exporting basic commodities to foreign markets.
It has also been reported that the Ministry of Commerce and Industry met
with local poultry and meat suppliers before announcing the ban and warned them
against undersupplying the market. The ministry also told merchants to prepare
themselves for a ceiling on poultry prices.
