(KPL/VNA) – The Lao Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry has announced the suspension of pork imports from Vietnam and other countries hit by the outbreak of African swine fever.

According to the announcement, Laos will suspend the import of pork, including live pigs and processed products, from Vietnam.

Relevant units will monitor illegal import at international, local and traditional border gates and international airports. Additionally, pork that has been smuggled or illegally imported into Laos must be destroyed.

In 2020, Laos suspended the import of pork from China and Thailand after detecting seven outbreaks of African swine fever with 973 dead pigs in Saravan province. Most recently in January, Laos also halted the import of pork from Thailand.
