Vietnam should only export processed pork


Vietnam’s Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development is encouraging pig farmers to only export processed products instead of live animals. “I strongly recommend that we focus on the export of processed livestock products, such as frozen meat, including suckling pigs and other products.

Even Thailand only exports processed products,” Vu Van Tam, its Deputy Minister told a local daily, adding that controlling epidemic diseases should be the country’s top priority. He also encouraged advanced technology for livestock rearing and diversifying their livestock breeds for good quality meat and to lower product prices. This will allow producers to compete on a regional scale, and increase the volume of meat exports.
