ICSA WELCOMES OPENING OF IRAN FOR SHEEPMEAT

Oct 17, 2016 | Press Releases | 0 comments

17 OCTOBER 2016

ICSA sheep chairman John Brooks has welcomed the opening of the Iranian market for Irish sheepmeat exports. “Every extra market is a help and we welcome the potential that a country of over 80 million people offers.  However, it is vital that the Irish banking sector co-operates with the Iranian banking sector to ensure that business can be transacted.”

“ICSA met the Department last week to press the case for more markets for sheepmeat exports and in particular, we also emphasised the need to give equal attention to live exports of sheep.   ICSA looked for a reduction in the bureaucracy around live exports and argued strongly that live exports were vital to bring competition into the market. Also, live exports help ensure that we maximise opportunities to supply.”

TILLAGE PLAN NEEDS STRONG FINANCIAL COMMITMENT

ICSA Tillage chair Gavin Carberry has said Minister McConalogue must put money on the table if the decline in the area under tillage is to be reversed. “The tillage sector is in dire need of a significant and multi-year financial boost which must be delivered if the Department are serious about meeting the target of increasing the tillage area to 400,000ha by 2030 as part of the Climate Action Plan,” he said.
