IRELAND - Ireland has made an agreement on a health certificate to begin exports to Oman.
Ireland's Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney said that “The Gulf countries are one of the fastest growing segments of our export markets and Irish beef and lamb is much sought after there.
"I am particularly pleased that sheepmeat access is secured here as pursuing markets for this sector is a particular target for us.
Mr Coveney added: “These two new markets come on top of other key announcements in 2015 for market access for Irish meat.
"However we are not resting here and the pursuit of new markets continues and my Department continues to work closely with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Bord Bia, the European Commission and industry in terms of identifying and securing new Third Country markets.”
