Srun Poav, the Cambodia Livestock Raisers Association Director, said imports of more than 500,000 pigs from Vietnam has been banned to prevent the spread of ASF. “Currently, more than 1,000 live pigs are imported from Thailand every day,” he said. The market price of pig is USD 2.75/kg, almost double compared to the same period last year.
