The Council was informed by the Czech Republic and the Commission about the o utcome of the fifth m inisterial meeting on African swine fever (ASF), which took place in Prague last November with the p articipati on of Austria, Bulgaria, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Slovakia. In particular they informed the Council about the meeting's conclusions, which focused on the need to further re inforce international cooperation, stimulate additional research on ASF, learning from best practices and addressing the problem of the human factor.

The Council also heard the Danish delegation on possible measures to eradicate ASF in relation to deepenin g the EU control strategy. Denmark acknowledged the efforts made by the Commission in fighting ASF, but also asked to step up efforts in terms of: controlling, containing and eradicating ASF in wild boar populations; preventing further spreading via means of transport; improving information activities on biosecurity in affected areas; and investing on further research.

In the ensuing debate member states agreed that a lot of good work had already been done, but cooperation could be further improve d within t he EU and with neighbouring countries. They stressed the importance of addressing the human factor and keep investing on research.
