The Minister of Agriculture has rejected a request from a Vietnamese company for Cambodia to allow it to export pigs into the Kingdom, while Vietnam continues to suffer a serious outbreak of African swine fever.
General Directorate of Animal Health and Production director-general Tan Phannara said after the meeting on Monday that the Vietnamese representatives had requested permission from Minister of Agriculture Veng Sakhon to allow pigs to be imported from the country, but the proposal was rejected.
“We stopped all imports of pigs from Vietnam, and now the company wanted us to let the practice resume, saying that its pigs were free from the disease. But we did not agree,” he said.
