is opening the door
for more pork to be
imported, unless Vietnamese pig farmers raise their
productivity and, therefore, their ability to compete.
Feed industry consultant Philippe Serene, who used
to head up one of Vietnam's largest feed companies,
pointed out that the local production of pork experienced
a sharp increase over the past few years, with a rise
of 11 percent in 2009, compared with 2008.
He explained that in the past, the local market had
been protected by a custom tariff. But the rise in demand
and new WTO international trade agreements could
force Vietnam to accept pork imports jeopardizing
continued growth in local pig production.
The question now, commented Serene, was whether the
Vietnamese government would take any action to protect local
pig production against potentially large imports from countries
with lower costs, such as the U.S., China, Canada and Brazil.
This action could be in the form of subsidies or tariffs
to curb imports, or official action to provide pig farmers
with technical assistance to help them improve farm
management, animal health and genetic performance.
Whatever happens, big changes are likely in Vietnamese pig
production in the future.
