S'pore to lift suspension on poultry imports from Selangor and Perak

SINGAPORE - Singapore is lifting the suspension on imports of poultry and poultry products from Selangor and Perak from Friday.

Singapore's Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority visited both Malaysian states recently and it is satisfied with the measures put in place to keep out bird flu.

AVA says the surveillance, disease prevention and bio-security system implemented by Malaysia's Department of Veterinary are in line with international standards.

Authorities from both countries have also agreed to step up pre-export testing and checks on accredited duck farms to minimise the risk of infected poultry entering Singapore.

Malaysia was declared free from bird flu on 22 June. Source: Channel News Asia
