MPI launches NZ biosecurity reform project
Last week the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) launched ‘Biosecurity 2025’ – a project to review and future-proof New Zealand’s biosecurity system and replace the current 2003 New Zealand Biosecurity Strategy.
MPI will be seeking feedback from biosecurity stakeholders, Māori and the public through a consultation process. To register your interest email [email protected]
KVH Chief Executive Barry O’Neil says: “we look forward to being actively involved in this project with MPI and engaging with industry to ensure the best possible outcome for the kiwifruit industry is achieved. The recent Queensland fruit fly response highlights the critical importance of an effective biosecurity system so this is an excellent opportunity for our industry to contribute to the new Directional Document which will shape New Zealand’s future biosecurity system.”
Growers are encouraged to find out more about the project on MPI’s website and email KVH with any queries or feedback.
