Argentina’s food officials have met with the head of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) to discuss the country’s progress in improving veterinary standards and eliminating disease.

Minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries Norberto Yauhar and head of the National Food Safety and Quality Service (SENASA) Marcelo Miguez attended the meeting with OIE director Bernard Vallat to discuss Argentina’s implementation of national policies on animal health and welfare, as well as the work of its veterinary services.

Yauhar also outlined the recent progress made on poultry health policy and the development of best practices for agricultural production.

Speaking after the meeting, Vallat said: "The OIE has 12 regional offices throughout the world and Argentina, is one of the most important, so I’m glad I had the opportunity to meet with the Minister of Agriculture, to discuss national and international issues regarding animal health".
