The Memorandum of Understanding was signed with the Authorities of the Russian Federation in Berlin last week.

Welcoming the signing, Minister Killeen stated that this was an important development for Irish Fish exports as the Memorandum confirms that all fishery products exported to the Russian Federation are in compliance with the veterinary and sanitary requirements of the Russian Authorities.

"The signing of the Memorandum will assist in the further development of Irish fish and fishery products to the Russian Federation for the foreseeable future," said the Clare T.D.

"I would like congratulate officials from the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, the Sea Fisheries Protection Authority and the Department of Foreign Affairs, whose collaborative efforts ensured a successful outcome to the discussions, leading to this Memorandum," he concluded.
