Afghanistan: Ministry of Agriculture (MAIL) High-Level Seminar

March 30, 2021

On March 30, 2021, CLDP will support USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) in facilitating a virtual seminar for senior level Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAIL) and other Afghan Government (GoA) representatives.  The seminar will provide a venue for awareness raising, and foster dialogue between the MAIL and USG senior officials on Afghanistan’s present and future SPS measures for WTO compliance. The event will cover the importance of the SPS agreement, as well as Challenges for Afghanistan in the implementation of SPS standards, guidelines and recommendations, as determined by MAIL’s Plant Protection Quarantine Division (PPQD) staff and SWOTs learned in the FY20 Baseline Study. As a result of this seminar USDA FAS and CLDP expect to find increased understanding on behalf of senior GoA officials on the importance of SPS measures, and an increased inter-ministerial commitment to provide coordination, training and support in strengthening the country's SPS system. This seminar contributes to CLDPs objective of supporting Afghanistan’s SPS and food safety legal and regulatory regimes and procedures, thus improving Afghan market access for agricultural exports.
