Uzbekistan is considering the possibility of importing meat from Mongolia.
A delegation from Tashkent have been in Mongolia in order to study the quality of the local meat, learn about nomadic cattle breeding and farming and visit several meat processing plants. The delegates noted that since these plants have introduced Halal meat slaughtering standards, it creates all the necessary conditions to export meat to Uzbekistan. Deputy Minister Saule, the most senior member of the delegation, noted that Mongolia has a breadth of opportunity to cooperate with Uzbekistan in many sectors.
The two sides agreed to implement joint projects and programmes further on expanding cooperation into animal husbandry and the veterinary sphere, to share practices as well as to augment trade of animal-related raw materials and products.
