Vote Recommendation: For

Resolution Analysis
This resolution aims to repeal the narrowly-passed "Limiting Animal Pathogens" for a number of effects perceived as overly burdensome on member nations and wet markets. The repeal first notes that the target prohibits wet market employees from such word indefinitely where they cannot "consistently test negative for zoonotic diseases", regardless of the actual health risk this poses. Next, the repeal argues that requiring "every animal" being imported or exported being tested is often very burdensome financially and logistically. Finally, the repeal argues that the approach of the target is too narrow in mandating testing for zoonotic diseases, due to many zoonotic illnesses "lack[ing] any adequate testing whatsoever".

These effects are undoubtedly very harmful to wet market workers, who may find themselves out of a job because of these overly restrictive provisions. Member nation economies, too, will be unnecessarily harmed by these provisions, to the point that repealing and replacing the resolution is the best course of action.

For the above reasons, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends a vote For the General Assembly resolution at vote, "Repeal Limiting Animal Pathogens".
