Russian manufacturers of vaccines for veterinary use and feed for farm animals intend to begin supplying a wide range of these products to Sri Lanka in the near future. This was reported by Rosselkhoznadzor following the 37th session of the Regional Conference of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) for Asia and the Pacific.

This list, in particular, will include various means to combat animal diseases, as well as feed and feed additives for non-productive animals and fish. It is also planned to supply live, chilled and frozen fish, caviar, invertebrates and their processed products, meat and meat products from pigs and poultry, as well as non-food products of animal origin.

The Russian department has already provided its Sri Lankan colleagues with draft veterinary certificates for all these products. In the near future, they will also be sent comments on these documents and requirements for facilities for the production of these goods. The competent specialists of the Asian country themselves expressed particular interest in testing Russian vaccines for farm animals and poultry. For their part, representatives of Rosselkhoznadzor confirmed their readiness to study the needs of Asian partners for immunobiological drugs upon receipt of a corresponding request. Foreign experts also discussed the Russian certification system for plant products and expressed interest in substantive consultations with Russian colleagues on this issue. At the end of the meeting, the parties thanked each other for the rich conversation, exchanged working contacts and agreed on the further development of cooperation.
