Rosselkhoznadzor has held talks with the Veterinary Bureau of the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry of the Republic of Namibia.

From May 22 to 23, 2019, the Russian delegation chaired by the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation - Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District Yury Trutnev attended the eighth meeting of the Mixed Intergovernmental Russian-Namibian Commission for Trade and Economic Cooperation in Windhoek (Namibia) . The event was attended by representatives of the Rosselkhoznadzor.

On the fields of the intergovernmental commission (IPC), Artem Daushev, adviser to the Head of the Rosselkhoznadzor, held talks with the Head of the Veterinary Bureau of the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry of the Republic of Namibia, Dr. Albertina Shilongo. They discussed current issues of cooperation.

Albertina Shilongo handed over the veterinary-sanitary requirements requested earlier by the Rosselkhoznadzor for the pork, eggs, finished meat products delivered to Namibia, and also pledged to send veterinary-sanitary requirements for seafood and fish to the Russian Ministry as soon as possible.

Due to the need to expand the geography of deliveries of Russian livestock products and the interest of Russian producers in increasing export volumes, the Rosselkhoznadzor handed over to the Namibian side projects of veterinary certificates for the export of finished meat products, fish and seafood, as well as large and small cattle meat from Russia to Namibia. Representatives of the foreign ministry pledged to promptly review them and inform the Russian side of the results of the review by the end of June 2019.

Rosselkhoznadzor confirmed the high safety standards of Russian products and declared its readiness to ensure its compliance with the requirements of Namibia.
