MOA to Seek Legislation For Livestock Hub

By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, March 22 (LINA) - Deputy Agriculture Minister for Technical Services, Dr. Zizi Zubahyea Subah, has disclosed that the Ministry of Agriculture will shortly submit a draft bill  to the National Legislature to make the National Livestock Policy Hub a law in Liberia.

Dr. Subah said that even though it was recently launched, making Liberia the third country in Africa to be a member, it was necessary that the hub be enacted into law, because it will address livestock protein needs.

Speaking at the close of a two-day workshop for the Veterinary Governance in Africa Program and the National Livestock Policy Hub Inauguration recently, Dr. Subah urged the participants to put into practice the skills and knowledge acquired during the two-day workshop, for the improvement of the Liberia’s agriculture sector.

He told the participants that the National Livestock Policy Hub will coordinate activities in the three areas including, animal health, food safety and health at national level, in relation to Sanitary and Phyto-sanitary Standard matter.

Dr. Subah, who deputized for Agriculture Minister Dr. Florence Chenoweth, also said that the Hub will advise on policy related to Sanitary and Phyto-sanitary Standard measures and oversee its implementation at the national level.

He indicated that the Hub will also facilitate the provision of relevant information to stakeholders, and coordinate prior consultations with all stakeholders, in preparation of country positions, as well as advise the Government of Liberia on national polices.

Dr. Subah said the HUB will assist the ministries and agencies of government to scrutinize new proposed or revised legislation, regulate standards with the purpose of ensuring that they are in compliance with the Sanitary and Phyto-sanitary Standard agreement.
