The Dominican embassy in Washington confirmed Thursday that technicians from the United States Department of Agriculture will soon travel to the Dominican Republic to carry out audits that would allow the country to export beef products to the US market.
Ambassador Sonia Guzmán explained that the objective of these audits is to monitor that the sanitary safety system in the beef sector maintains a level of protection that ensures that the products exported to the United States are safe, unadulterated and properly labeled.
The diplomat expressed her satisfaction with the positive response of the United States Department of Agriculture to the efforts made by veterinarians of the Ministry of Public Health and technicians of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Dominican Republic, beef producers in our country and officials of the Dominican embassy in Washington.
Guzman recognized the great teamwork and institutional coordination that has been taking place in search of the reactivation of beef exports to the United States, for the first time in more than 20 years.
“This great achievement will not only bring foreign exchange to the country, but will also mobilize thousands of jobs in the Dominican agro-industrial sector,” said the diplomat.
She recalled that during the Annual Ordinary Assembly of the National Confederation of Agricultural Producers (Confenagro), held on August 26, President Luis Abinader announced that shortly after coming to power, his government began efforts to get the United States to send its technicians.
