COLEACP organised, in collaboration with the Ministry of Environment, Agriculture and Livestock of Burundi (MINEAGRIE) and the Federal Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Burundi (CFCIB), a virtual information workshop on the new EU SPS regulation on 25 June.
The objective of the workshop was to inform and sensitise public and private stakeholders in the Burundian horticultural sector on the SPS regulatory requirements for exports of horticultural products to the EU, and to set up a public-private working group that could define priority actions to be taken to improve the Burundian national SPS system.
25 representatives of companies active in the fruit and vegetable sector and other structures were present. These included the EU Delegation in Burundi, the Plant Protection Directorate, the Burundi Organic Agricultural Movement (BOAM), and the Interprofession des fruits du Burundi (IPFB).
This activity is supported by the Fit For Market SPS programme, implemented by COLEACP within the Framework of Development Cooperation between the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) and the European Union.
