Public hearing today on proposed
permanent ban on pigs, pork items

The public hearing on the proposed ordinance that will permanently prohibit the entry of live pigs and pork products from Luzon and other African swine fever-affected areas to Negros Occidental is set today at the Provincial Capitol in Bacolod City.

Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena said yesterday he is expecting more than 100 individuals from all sectors―producers, handlers, local government units, buyers, consumers, and food chains - to attend the public discourse.

“We’re expecting the ordinance will be passed in the afternoon, during the regular session (of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan). We’re also expecting those whose businesses were affected by the ban of pork imports in the province to oppose the measure,” he said.
