MEWA Lifts Ban on Importing Live Meat from Somalia

Riyadh, The Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture (MEWA) temporarily lifted the ban on importing live meat (living livestock) from the Republic of Somalia, with the aim of strengthening local markets with imported livestock, in line with the role and responsibilities of the Ministry in ensuring food supply.
The ministry indicated that it is expected that at least 600 thousand sheep and 100 thousand camels would arrive in the local market, within 30 days, after the expiration of the regular quarantine period, stressing that this procedure was taken after setting all conditions for quarantine as a guarantee to protect the Kingdom from the risks of animal epidemic diseases.
