Hungary on the way to the third biggest agri-food market of the EU
2016. 11. 10.

The food market of the Arab countries is growing dynamically, but those who want to enter it or stay on it have to meet strict regulations. To ensure that the European businesses succeed the European Commission founded the GCC-EU Trade and Business Cooperation Facility. Devecz Miklós, the director general of NAH is looking out for the Hungarian interest during the talks held at the Dubai International Food Safety Conference.

One of the main themes of the meetings is the Halal Scheme established by the Gulf Corporation Council (GCC). The strict standards will be felt in the European continent, including Hungary. The GCC consisting of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Bahrain, bought 7.796 million euros worth of agri-food products that represents 6.4% of total EU exports in the field.

The Halal Scheme does not only cover the production and processing of the goods, but the transportation as well. To help to ease the pressure created by the strict standards Devecz Miklós had a private meeting with the secretary general of the GCC Standardization Organization, Mr. Nabil A. Molla, the director of the Dubai Accreditation Department, Ms. Amina A. Mohammed and Mr. Ahmed Al-Mutairi, the general director of the GAC–GCC Accreditation Center.
