Vietnam’s Ministry of Industry and Trade has issued a warning to local traders regarding unofficial exports of live pigs to China.

In a note posted on its website on May 17, the ministry said exports of live pigs from Vietnam to China through sub-border gates and paths linking the two countries are likely to face difficulties because China does not include Vietnam on its list of countries and territories from which it allows pig imports.

Exports of live pigs through sub-border gates to China have risen significantly recently given the high demand from China, according to the Vietnamese ministry.
