Deputy Director General of the Livestock Sector at the Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR) Mohsen Al-Mutairi said the Deputy Director General of the Administrative and Financial Affairs Sector in the authority was addressed to include the bird and feed market within the organizational structure of the authority’s employees by creating a new section for him to follow up the authority’s bird and feed markets and projects.
He indicated that his sector also requested for the organizational structure of the proposed section (Birds and Feed Markets Section) to be within the control of veterinary services – Animal Health Department of the sector.
To complement the efforts made to remove violations from the bird and feed market, they have also addressed the undersecretary of the Ministry of Public Works and asked to provide a car every week to drain the accumulated amount of water.
