Chile and the U.S launch electronic phytosanitary certification system

The Chilean Minister of Agriculture, Antonio Walker, announced the start of the paperless phytosanitary certification between Chile and the U.S. This means that the products of plant origin being marketed between both countries will only require an electronic certificate to enter the destination country. This will streamline the export process and decrease its costs. It also represents a significant advance because, as Walker pointed out, “the U.S is a strategic partner for Chile, as more than a third of our fresh fruit is exported there.”
