KVH welcomes new biosecurity funding
01 June 2017
New Zealand’s biosecurity efforts received a welcome $18.4 million boost in Budget 2017. Primary Industries Minister Nathan Guy said the money would help further strengthen New Zealand’s biosecurity system and protect borders. Some of the funding would go to addressing biosecurity risk off-shore, reviewing Import Health Standards, and lifting public awareness of biosecurity responsibilities. KVH applauds this commitment to biosecurity and looks forward to working with MPI to ensure the kiwifruit industry does its part to the biosecurity efforts in New Zealand.
