Today’s agreement offers significant opportunities for Irish livestock exports and reflects the highest standards of animal health and welfare in Ireland. In relation to live exports the stringent systems of animal health and welfare controls are operated by DAFM to protect the welfare of cattle during transport.

The meeting also progressed discussions on market access for beef and sheepmeat exports. Other issues discussed were possibilities for engagement and partnerships between both countries and technical cooperation.
