Colombia/Peru set up joint phytosanitary panel

Colombia and Peru have formed a binational plant health committee, the MSF. The countries have created the body to share knowledge on specific crop and animal health concerns. The competent authorities in each country, Colombia’s official agricultural board of trade, the ICA, and its foods and health surveillance agency, the Invima, and Peru’s plant health inspection service, the Senasa, have developed proposals on a memorandum of understanding on the creation of the MSF, setting its rules and procedures, and a work plan for the year ahead on sharing experiences. Colombia has indicated its wish to learn from Peru’s experiences dealing with its Mediterranean fruit fly (Ceratitis capitata) emergency health alert. The ICA has recently declared an emergency alert against the pest in four of its states. Peru has led on the issue in the region.
