GhassanEdited01We can say that the roundtable discussions of the problems of the Arab poultry industry during “VIV MEA” exhibition in Abu Dhabi late last year was the most important event in my opinion.

How could it not be? it gathered around the most important and successful poles of the Arab poultry industry. Of course, these discussions will have dedicated pages in the upcoming issue in which we will discuss in detail the opinions of many who attended and who followed the discussion and were not unable to attend...

As it became known, the topic of discussion revolved around the problems of our poultry industry.It is an interesting and branching topic that cannot be given its due in a discussion that does not exceed three hours, even three years may not be enough for us to delve well into its details.

The problems of the poultry industry are “like vinegar worms, in it and from it...”As the engineer Tony Freiji said, wondering: the problems of the poultry industry? It is our daily bread... Every day we have a problem that only the God Almighty knows... As the honorable words in the noble verse state: “And God creates what you do not know...”

The discussions touched on the problems of importing poultry and the sharp rise in the prices of corn and soybean meal, which is the mainstay of poultry feed.

There was also a discussion about the exchange of experiences between the countries of the Middle East and the Gulf in the production and marketing of poultry, after the Corona eliminated many personal contacts, meetings and trips...

But the most important thing that was discussed was to increase cooperation between the poles of Arab producers, perhaps leading to the establishment of the “Arab Poultry Industry Union.”Everyone was so enthusiastic about this idea that it seemed to me like a collective decision which lacked nothing but implementation...

But unfortunately...The wind blows counter to what ships desire... It is true that everyone wants to establish some kind of union between the owners of poultry projects, but the laws prevent us from that...Some may wonder about the importance of this union... And how might one benefit from it? Who trusts whom ... to exchange information and experiences, whether scientific, production plans, or even marketing?The truth is said: If we were able to establish such a union, we might have access to a prosperous future through its wide door...

Imagine that the Arab poultry industry would have a complex of offices and laboratories and a world of specialized informatics... where we would have a data bank for this industry... and instead of asking for information from Google, we would be the ones giving it...

I will not get carried away with dreams, as reality may smash them in the bud.

It is only possible to create such a union within the Arab League... I do not think that we lean on politics and work through it since we want an inclusive and productive union.

So according to any law and in which country we can register such a union? A union requires offices, committees, employees, observers, money... a treasurer, etc..... etc...

A dilemma that can only be resolved by consensual agreement... For example, for the union to be registered in Egypt with representative offices in Abu Dhabi, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, and vice versa.

2 to 5% of the budget of major international companies go to what is called research and development (R&D), so why not have a private, non-profit company made up of the poles of the Arab poultry industry only for research and development?

Mission Impossible? But aren’t we living in the era of mission impossible???
