PHILIPPINES - The Philippine Department of Agriculture has lifted a temporary ban on imports of poultry and poultry products from the Nebraska in the US.

The ban was imposed last year because of a report of low pathogenic avian influenza in the State.

The Department of Agriculture Memorandum Order No. 1 (2008) was issued by the Philippine Secretary of Agriculture based on a report submitted by USDA/APHIS to the Office International des Epizooties (OIE) on the cleaning and disinfection activities conducted on 27 August 2007.

The United States exported over $25 million worth of poultry and poultry products to the Philippines last year, up nearly 60 per cent from the previous year.
