New Zealand prepares to import

New Zealand is preparing to open up to imports of bee products. At present, it only allows imports from a few Pacific Islands claiming disease risks. But a risk analysis is about to begin with the expectation that some import barriers will come down.

The NZ Bee Industry Group realises that it must play ball and face more competition.

Meanwhile the director of the Australian Honey Bee Industry Council, Steven Ware, said that after a ban of more than a decade, he would believe a trade link when he saw one.
