Samdech Techo Hun Sen said, “If we need to import, we import only the quantity that is lacking. Now we lack 18 percent, if we feed enough, we do not need to import from others, because if our market is enough, what do we need? Import more, but I do not understand that yesterday a company intends to import 1 million pigs from Thailand, if I agree Let the company import 1 million pigs, of course, I killed a local pig farmer in Cambodia while walking to announce to farmers Raise pigs, and if we import to some extent to supply local demand, if we supply not enough, then we take this opportunity Strive to feed ourselves enough and there is an export demand, we join exports to supply to overseas markets because overseas markets such as Hong Kong, Singapore need meat for supply because they do not have a place to raise animals, so they need pork, so we encourage imports Get out and go back. ” By: Kolap
