Agriculture minister Luis Ramon Rodriguez announced the government’s plans for a sanitary policy aimed at the livestock sector so the country can export chicken, pork and beef, especially to the U.S.

He said that to achieve that goal, a plan was devised which seeks to obtain the certification of beef and slaughterhouses; obtain confirmation that the country has no Newcastle (Neumoencefalitis) in poultry and for the country to be declared free of classical swine fever.

The announcement comes one year after Haiti’s authorities placed a ban on Dominican poultry, because of fears of diseases.
