Addis Ababa, 8 August 2014 (WIC) - African Union- Inter-African Bureau for Animal Resources (AU-IBAR) has selected Ethiopia as a centre for veterinary service programs it undertakes in East Africa.

Training for veterinary staff from the Greater Horn of Africa was opened at Sebeta town, on the outskirts of Addis Ababa on Monday.

AU-IBAR noted that the experience of Ethiopia in the livestock sector is better than the other countries in the region.

Because of this, the country was selected to serve as a centre for its activities related to veterinary resources and health services.

AU-IBAR has also recognized the National Animal Health Diagnostic and Investigation Centre (NAHDIC) under the Ethiopian Ministry of Agriculture.

According to ENA, Agriculture State Minister Dr. Gebregziabher Gebreyohannes on his part emphasized the importance of creating a joint framework to solve animal health related problems instead of trying to resolve them in isolation.
