KEPHIS to hold Health Conference to promote market access

By KBC Reporter

Kenya will next month host the first ever International Plant Health Conference aimed at providing National Plant Protection Organizations (NPPOs) in Africa, the opportunity to promote market access.

The conference will also seek to leverage NPPOs achievements and challenges as well as import control and quarantine regulations.

Agriculture Permanent Secretary Dr. Richard Lesiyampe lauded the move saying the conference will ensure that operations undertaken by plant inspectorates follow the set international rules and regulations.

The Conference to be held between September 12 and 16 is organized by Kenya Plant Health Inspectorate Service, KEPHIS in collaboration with the Centre of Phytosanitary Excellence (COPE).

COPE is domiciled at KEPHIS and has hosted hundreds of students from across the world.
