The import of pigs, frozen pork and frozen pork jerky has been temporarily suspended due to an outbreak of African swine fever (ASF) in neighbouring China, according to a December 7 statement by the Department of Trade under the Ministry of Commerce, told The Myanmar Times.

Although ASF has yet to reach Myanmar, which imports pigs and pork from China for local consumption, the government is raising efforts to curb the illegal trade of pork through the Muse border gate to prevent the disease from entering the country.

Myanmar faces the threat of ASF at a time when investors have been taking a greater interest in the industry. In Myanmar, pork consumption has typically been lower than fish or poultry due to higher prices. However, demand for pork as a source of protein is growing as larger segments of the population become wealthier.
