Cambodia imports 1,500 pigs from Thailand per day amid ban of import from Vietnam

Cambodia has imported up to 1,500 pigs from Thailand a day, as a ban on pig imports from Vietnam is still in place due to African swine fever outbreak, an animal health chief has said.

“Currently, we don’t import pigs from Vietnam because we worry that they will carry the disease to other provinces (of Cambodia), so we take pigs from Thailand, where there is no outbreak of the disease,” said Tan Phannara, director general of the General Directorate of Animal Health and Production, on Monday.
