Islamabad ban on European poultry revoked
The government of Pakistan has withdrawn its
ban on the import of poultry from France, Germany, the UK and Iran in a bid to
maintain stability in local poultry prices.
The withdrawal is subject to certification from the veterinary authorities
of the exporting country to the effect that these chicks and hatching eggs have
not originated from the Avian
infected zones or areas.
According to the notification the ban shall also not apply to the import of
day-old grand parent stock chicks, day-old parent stock or breeders chicks of
layers and broilers and hatching eggs from France
and the United Kingdom. Pakistan
