Mr Stéphane Travert, the Minister of Agriculture and Food, gathered this week representatives of the pig industry and hunters to discuss the new measures that must be implemented to avoid the entry of African swine fever.

Mr Stéphane Travert presented the evaluation of the monitoring, sensitisation and control measures carried out since September 13th.

The Minister has asked for the discontinuation of all forestry activities in the reinforced observation area (as well as the discontinuation of hunting), and the implementation of measures to avoid the movement of wild boars from the infected area in Belgium into France is being studied.

The Minister remembered the important problem of biosecurity and the need to implement reinforced measures in the affected areas that will be subject to strict controls to avoid the introduction of the virus on the farms.

After its detection in Belgium, France implemented immediately an action plan in the four bordering departments of Ardennes, Meuse, Moselle and Meurthe-Moselle. A reinforced observation area has also been defined that includes 133 districts in the limits of the infected area in Belgium.
