Resulting from a national technical debate among government officials, industry, exporters, academia, and 14 regional governments, the regulation consists of 58 articles and 14 transitory additional provisions, including annexes.
The regulation also establishes the functions of the “Single Window for Exports” for aquaculture, which will provide information on efficient handling of aquaculture development and promotion.
As a result of the regulation, there is expected to be continued strong demand for U.S. soybeans and meals for the feed sector. ■
