Hygiene & Biosecurity

A new confrontation was held this week in Brussels between the Sardinia Region, the Ministry of Health and the European Commission as part of the 'road map' established with a view to the revision of the restrictions on the movement of pigs and pig products, which have been a burden for some time on the island due to African swine fever.

Sardinia towards the revision of the restrictions on ASF

"During the eradication campaign we have carried out serious work, implementing important corrective measures where the Commission has asked us to intervene and now, in the face of the results recorded and the solid data brought to the attention of the European institutions, we expect that efforts are fully recognized. Never before have the representatives of the regional government sat at the table in Brussels and we are convinced that today our territory can be seen as a model in the fight against African swine fever. We are confident in a highly anticipated reopening from the whole island and in particular from the world of the countryside", declared the president of the Region, Christian Solinas .

"It is probably - says the commissioner Mario Nieddu- the last meeting before the vote for the modification of the current restrictions, on which the technical committee of which the representatives of the member states will be called to express its opinion in mid-December ".

"Sardinia has respected all the requests made by Brussels, through a difficult path, which cost great sacrifices. The cancellation of the embargo on exports of animals and pork is a step that the island has been waiting for a long time and which in the light of the results achieved must be agreed without any more hesitation", concludes commissioner Nieddu.
