Arab countries are ready to import lambs from Bulgaria, according to Bulgarian Minster of Agriculture and Foods Miroslav Naydenov.

Just Saudi Arabia needs some 5 M animals per year according to Naydenov, who spoke at a lamb producers meeting near the St. Peter and Paul Monastery near Lyaskovets.

The Bulgarian minister said that this mandates a more active role of the state in supporting lamb producers.

"Lamb producers started receiving subsidies only in 2009, but every year since then we have given them more and more, and we plan to continue that trend," said Naydenov.

The minister however did not specify whether there are any ongoing trade negotiations or impending agreements with Arab countries on that issue.
