ROPOSED PROGRAMME FOR DEVELOPMENT OF POULTRY PRODUCTION IN THE NEAR EAST REGION

The study proposes a programme for building a number of intensive poultry projects (integrated units for broiler and egg production) in each of 18 Arab-countries ever the next 20 years. Programme objective is to increase the average annual precipitate consumption from 4.4 kg of poultry meat and 46 eggs to 12.8 kg of meat and 128 eggs by the year 2000. Three regional projects were also suggested to support this programme and to make available (within the region)feed ingredients, breeding stock and equipment at lower prices. A joint Arab fund(0 3.5 billion) is required to finance this proposal over the pried.This amount is less than 5% of the cumulative expected value of animal products which will be imported to these countries up to the year 2000 to meet local demand for these products. Capital output ratio in these investments will be less than 1.5, while annual rate of investment return would not be less than 21%.To make the programme more effective, cooperation between these countries is required to solve many problems related to trade, pricing and marketing policies of various commodities involved in this industry. Cooperation is also required in the field of training and 'veterinary services between these countries.
