“No sheepmeat exports have been recorded by the CSO since the market was opened in October 2016”

Trade with Iran is hindered by a combination of unfavourable trading conditions, plentiful supplies from lower-cost competitors and non-regulatory or financial barriers, according to Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed TD.

The Minister made the comments in response to a question from Fianna Fáil’s Charlie McConalogue who asked if progress is being made to open up the Iranian market for beef exports.

“The Iranian market is already open for beef and sheepmeat exports. A veterinary health certificate for the export of Irish beef to Iran was agreed in March 2013.” Minister Creed outlined.

Negligible

According to the CSO, the Minister added, trade has been negligible in recent years.

“Officials from my Department participated in a successful trade mission to Iran and Turkey in April 2016 which resulted in a bilaterally agreed veterinary health certificate that allowed Irish sheepmeat access to the Iranian market.”

“However, no sheepmeat exports have been recorded by the CSO since the market was opened in October 2016.”

“In relation to the non-regulatory barriers, work is ongoing at EU level to facilitate efficient commercial transactions between businesses in member states and Iran.” the Minister concluded.
