In Algiers, Endre Kardeván, Rural Development State Secretary of Hungary and his Algerian colleague, Chief Veterinarian Rachid Bougueddour, have agreed on the joint acceptance of animal health certificates for calves and beef cattle.
This means the last obstacle impeding the export of Hungarian beef has now been removed.
According to the agreement, Hungary will now be able to export genetically valuable stock bulls and reproductive material to Algeria, in addition to which Hungarian experts will take part in the setting up of an demonstration and training centre, and in joint research programmes.
Algeria would like to significantly increase the country's level of poultry consumption. As a result, the Agriculture Ministry is planning large-scale projects. On the basis of the agreement signed in Budapest, Hungarian experts will help the modernisation and development of Algerian poultry farming.
