Srun Pov, president of Association of Pigs Raising in Cambodia, said Wednesday that he had raised the fear of the pig disease spread to Cambodia through the import from Vietnam to the authorities several weeks ago.

According to Srun Pov, Cambodia needs a total of more than 4, 000 pigs for daily consumption, and in Phnom Penh alone it needs between 1,200 to 1,300 pigs.

Cambodia is reported to have imported about one million pigs per year from Thailand alone.
