US WANTS TO EXPORT POULTRY TO SA: US Senators Chris Coons and Johnny Isakson have again written to President Jacob Zuma urging him to open up the South African market to US poultry "expeditiously" to avoid South Africa losing lucrative export benefits to the US. Coons of Delaware and Isakson of Georgia, both represent major poultry-producing states. They wrote their latest urgent appeal to Zuma as agricultural and trade officials from the US and SA were meeting in Pretoria to try to resolve the protracted dispute over US meat imports. At stake is South Africa's continued enjoyment of trade benefits under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) which last year allowed US$1.6 billion worth of South African exports into the US market duty free. Sibahle Motha reports.
