State Minister for Fisheries and Livestock Md Ashraf Ali Khan Khasru said on Saturday the government plans to export poultry meat and its eggs abroad, as there is surplus in quantity even after meeting the national demand.

Speaking at the concluding day of the 11th International poultry show at the International Convention City Bashundhara in the capital, he also said initiatives have already been taken to expedite the process, according to a press release.

“We are strictly enforcing the Fisheries and Feed Act 2010, as well as the Food Safety Act 2013 to ensure food safety,” the minister added, “But challenges are persisting in the sector, including rising feed prices, advent of new diseases, medicines losing their effectiveness, etc.”

Secretary of Fisheries and Livestock Ministry Md Raisul Alam Mondal said steps must be taken immediately to ensure that too many antibiotics are not used on poultry animals, which gradually forces the medicines to lose their effectiveness.

“A standard operating procedure (SOP) must be practiced to ensure this,” he added.

World's Poultry Science Association-Bangladesh Branch (WPSA-BB) and Bangladesh Poultry Industries Central Council (BPICC) jointly organized the show.

Some 800 stalls of 500 companies from 22 countries across the globe participated at the 3-day poultry show.

Among others, chairman of Bangladesh Food Safety Authority Md Mahfuzul Haque, World's Poultry Science Association-Bangladesh Branch (WPSA-BB) president Shamsul Arefin Khaled and more also spoke during the occasion.
