Syria: Workshop on citrus marketing held in Latakia
The participants in the workshop proposed the establishment of a union of citrus producers and a boost to the promotion of citrus consumption, as well as the setting up of a national database of specifications and requirements of foreign markets to help exporters and an expansion of storage and cooling units.
The Governor of Latakia, Ibrahim Khadr Al-Salem, called for the areas devoted to citrus cultivation to be expanded, diversifying the number of varieties and improving the quality of the products, as this would positively affect the economic reality of producers and the governorate. They also stressed the readiness of the province to provide support and facilities to the growers to help them overcome any obstacles in the cultivation and marketing of their products.
The director of agriculture, Munther Khairbak, said later in a press statement that the results of the workshop will be followed up with suggestions and solutions, especially regarding the issues which require the involvement of the Ministry of Agriculture and Agrarian Reform. One of the key issues is the availability of sorting and packing centres, as these allow exporters to find new markets more easily.
The head of the Chamber of Agriculture, Engineer Shawki Jalila, said in a similar statement that the purpose of the workshop is to find solutions and develop a future plan for the marketing of citrus. Other such workshops are expected to follow in the future.
The workshop was attended by engineers from the Directorate of Agriculture, the Faculty of Agriculture of Tishreen University, the Agricultural Scientific Research Centre, the Exporters Union, the Halal Market Pricing Committee, the Syrian Trade Establishment Branch and the Agriculture Chamber in Latakia.
