ANC counters allegations of racial quotas in agricultural exports amid DA complaint

# The ANC says it opposes attempts to spread misinformation regarding racial quotas in agricultural exports. The DA has lodged a complaint with the European Union and British trade offices over new regulations that require farms to meet Black Economic Empowerment criteria for export permits. The ANC denies racial quotas, saying policies are based on fairness and inclusivity. The party says the gazetted notices are not new and reflect the previous year’s requirements, with 96.2 percent of SA’s exported agricultural products being duty-free. It deems the DA’s stance as deemed politically motivated.
