Canberra fruit offer studied

Agriculture Secretary Edgardo Angara said the government was studying a proposal by Canberra to hasten testing of Philippine fruit imports, a move which could open the way for pineapple and banana shipments to Australia. He told Reuters that Australian Trade Minister Mark Vaile proposed to speed up testing procedures to pave the way for the entry of Philippine pineapples and bananas into Australia. "He (Vaile) sent me a letter and we are now studying that," Angara said in a telephone interview. "It's a positive development and we should be able to come to a decision by Monday." Under the proposal, Australia will do simultaneous risk analyses on Philippine pineapples and bananas in 24 months. Canberra had previously said it needed up to 26 months to do a risk analysis for the import of Philippine bananas and another 24 months for pineapples.

The planned cut in cattle imports came just a week after it banned a major Australian supplier shipping to the Philippines.
