Permission to export planting material of nut-trees to the European Union member states was granted to Moldova. The recommendation to interested people to negotiate with partners about commercial relations on the delivery of the product to the European Union was given by the National Food Safety Agency (ANSA) on 12 October.
According to the Agriculture and Food Industry Ministry, the amendments made to the European Union’s legislation permit to import grafted plants of Juglans regia L. (nut-tree) and mother/father plants of up to two years, with naked roots, in vegetative repose, without leaves from Moldova.
The right to export apple (Malus domestica) planting material to the European Union in the next three years was obtained by Moldova last August.
An efficient cooperation, at the technical level, between ANSA and the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety, through the light of numerous exchanges of information and technical discussions with European experts made that possible.
