TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Following the absence of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) for a year, Taiwan will apply to resume pork exports, President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) said Saturday (June 29).

From July 1, Taiwan will report to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) that it has been free from foot-and-mouth disease for 12 months, thus allowing the country to resume the export of pork and related products, the United Daily News reported.

President Tsai mentioned the government plans on her Facebook page Saturday, including the fact in a list of government achievements also featuring the end of the European Union’s “yellow card” against the country’s fishing sector.

The president said her administration was working hard to remove all the negative aspects of Taiwan’s international reputation one by one, and the foot-and-mouth disease listing was the latest success.    [FULL  STORY]
