South African government to help local poultry industry export more

The poultry industry in South Africa will get government assistance to enter new export markets and become more competitive, according to the South African newspaper Business Day.
The local poultry industry exports only about 1.5% of its production, mainly to neighboring countries.
South African producers benefited in 2013 from tariff protection against imports from Brazil, which was the largest foreign supplier of chicken meat to that country in 2012, but which was accused of dumping. The sector also asked for protection against chicken from Europe.
The target markets include Angola, which imports most of its chicken meat from Brazil, and which may become a market for niche poultry products.
In the long term, the Department of Trade and Industry aims to open up markets in countries such as Iraq, Venezuela, Ghana, and Japan.
