The figures show part of the incidence of the pandemic produced by COVID-19, declared on March 11, 2020 by the WHO. This had the first visible effects on exports from the data for April, where the growing trend began to slow down compared to 2019. On the other hand, in May foreign trade was below the results of the same month of the year 2019. However, the global turnover for the first half of 2020 (€ 5,420.43 million) is higher than that of the same half of 2019 (€ 4,964.70 million), favored by the good figures for June 2020.
The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPA), in coordination with the autonomous communities, has launched an action plan for the control of temperatures in animal transport during the summer of 2020. It affects transport of more 8 hours to other countries, both within the European Union and outside it. The organizers of animal transfers have to make sure that the maximums allowed will not be exceeded and will have to deliver temperature records to the competent authorities once the trip is finished.
The European Parliament has created a committee to investigate non-compliance with EU rules on the protection of transported animals. Within 12 months, they will have to present a report in which they will find the infringements they find in the application of the EU animal welfare rules during transport inside and outside the EU.
The Carne y Salud platform has produced a report "Livestock and meat production and sustainability" in which perceptions will be crumbled Vs reality, sustainability and the European model of production, balanced consumption, which means the meat industry in rural areas and the sector's commitment to sustainability.

The BOE has published an order of the Council of Ministers that establishes exceptions in the transport of live animals during the period of the health alert generated by the coronavirus COVID-19.
Despite the economic, service and transport stoppage, the threat of Covid-19 has further strengthened the meat sector. From Anafric, the Spanish meat business association, wants to send a message of tranquility to the Spanish population and, above all, to highlight the "enormous effort and professionalism" that the sheep, cattle, pig and goat sector are carrying out to comply with the safety regulations established by decree 463/2020 (link to all updates to the royal decree), on the one hand, and to have their products taken to distribution points through the road transport network. ”
More than 10,000 veterinarians are working these days in slaughterhouses, farms, food industries, aquaculture facilities, distribution companies, collective catering, official public health and inspection services, analysis laboratories or customs control, among other places, with the aim of guaranteeing the population supply and food security in Spain during the state of alarm.
THANKS We can't think of another word from Anafric. Your support, your commitment, your trust and your effort will not be in vain. Together, we face this reality. And with the collaboration of all, we will leave. We are sure about it.
The Ministry of Industry agrees to temporarily suspend the obligation to pass the ITV of vehicles while the Decree of declaration of alarm status remains in force. As FENADISMER, the national association of ITV stations, has been reporting, there have been many complaints that transporters and private drivers have been raising these days due to the lack of information regarding the obligation to pass the ITV of their vehicles, since while some stations remained open, others were closed, as is the case of the ITV Andalucía, Extremadura, Navarra and Asturias, due to their different legal management regime.
The Interior Minister, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, has agreed to reestablish the controls of the Spanish land borders while the state of alarm lasts. The initiative, as assured by the minister, is within a policy of effective coordination with the European Union and with the autonomous communities.
