GUYANA - Experts from the Animal Health Unit of the Ministry of Agriculture are expected to visit South American neighbour Guyana early next month, a Guyana Information Network Agency press release stated.

This team of experts will be conducting inspection of the Guyanese poultry depots and processing plants to facilitate chicken and beef exports to TT, according to the release.

Recently, Government announced its willingness to import chicken from Guyana and Belize to offset the high price of chicken local consumers have been facing following a steep climb in the price of corn feed in the United States.

Guyanese Agriculture Minister Robert Persaud was informed of the TT team’s impending visit and expressed Guyana’s preparedness for the inspection.
