By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belize’s and Mexico agricultural health authorities BAHA and Senasica are meeting virtually on Friday to discuss the protocols for the exportation of livestock from Belize to Mexico.
The meeting will also have the participation of representatives from the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE), the International Regional Organization of Agricultural Health (OIRSA), and the Belize Livestock Producers Association (BLPA) said Milagro Matus, MAFSE’s Policy Analyst.
“So, while the Minister (Jose Abelardo Mai) is out there discussing the political element which is that of developing MOUs and stuff, we are fast-tracking some of the work which is that of reviewing the protocols, establishing new export certification documents, so that as soon as we sign, we can start implementing some of these agreements,” said Matus.
During the discussion on Friday with Senasica, both sides will be working on harmonizing the cattle export protocols.
“Meaning that we’re going to be removing all the red tape, everything that is unnecessary will be removed from the protocols,” she said.
Since earlier this year Belize has renewed the exportation of cattle to Mexico, but the red tape has slowed the process. The expectation is that after today’s meeting, the process can be expedited.
