Problems Regarding Pork Access to Albania
U.S. officials have a meeting scheduled with their Albanian counterparts in which the objective is to secure release of any detained shipments and allow all pipeline product clearance until a new, agreeable certificate can be negotiated. In the meantime, we understand that products already in the pipeline may experience clearance issues at customs. Please contact Courtney Heller (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you believe any of your shipments may be affected by this change in requirements for Albania. USMEF will work with USDA to resolve the situation, and will post updates as more information becomes available.
