Stakeholders’ meeting

In September 7, 2016, a large transport’s stakeholders meeting was organised in Brussels in order to discuss the draft guidelines to improve welfare of animals during transported. The meeting started with a presentation of Denis Simonis, the European Commission official responsible, who explained the objectives, opportunities and limits of the Transport Guides Project, and who also answered the questions and doubts of the stakeholders related to this Project. After a plenary meeting, participants broke out in subgroups to discuss the draft guides for cattle, poultry and horses. The aim is to finalise the draft guides by the end of the year.

A video of the meeting is available at the following youtube link:
