Brazil/Argentina discuss lifting pome trade suspension

Brazilian and Argentine delegations have met to discuss the lifting of the suspension on imports of pome fruit to Brazil. The Brazilian government suspended the import of apples, pears and quince from Argentina earlier this year due to the presence of codling moths (Cydia pomonella) in cargoes from the country. The trade will reportedly reopen with only the date to be agreed. Argentina has called for June 1st, but Brazil has so far only committed to July 1st. Brazil has accepted most of the technical support that Argentina presented at the meeting, while leaving decisions with the Brazilian plant health office, the DSV, on sanctions against packages that have been detained this year. Staff from the competent authorities of the two countries held a meeting in Brasilia earlier this month. They also discussed changes proposed by Brazil to a work plan for next year.
