    The VET-GOV programme has supported the establishment and strengthening of National Livestock
    Policy Hubs (NPLH) in most of the COMESA Member States (MSs). To complement the NLPH and for
    overall guidance and oversight of implementation of livestock programmes, COMESA is looking forward
    to the establishment of Regional Livestock Policy Hub (RLPH). The RLPH will be linked to the Alliance for
    Commodity Trade in Eastern and Southern Africa (ACTESA), a specialized agency under COMESA in
    charge of facilitating Commodity trade in Eastern and Southern African Countries.

    The Livestock Forum for the establishment of the RLPH within the COMESA was held in Port Louis,
    Mauritius on the 11-12th April, 2017. The overall objective of the meeting was to discuss on
    improvement of the institutional environment at national and regional levels to provide effective and
    efficient animal health and extension services in COMESA. The Forum was attended by participants
    from COMESA Secretariat, AU-IBAR, OIE, FAO, USAID/USDA, Tufts University and RECs
    (COMESA, EAC and IGAD). The list also included invited representatives from Comoros, Kenya,
    DRC, Egypt, Ethiopia, Libya, Madagascar, Mauritius, Malawi, Seychelles, Sudan, Swaziland,
    Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe in addition to participants from the Regional Farmers
    Organizations (EAFF, SACAU) (List of participants: Annex 1).

    The forum was officially opened by H.E. Mr. Mahen Kumar Seeruttun, the Minister of Agro-
    Industry, Mauritius following remarks from Dr Mphumuzi Sukati, Senior Policy Officer,
    Economics, trade and Marketing on behalf of Professor Ahmed El-Sawalhy, the Director AUIBAR
