In terms of crops, the government has named cabbage, garlic, onions, pepper, lettuce and white cabbage as crops that should be farmed more intensively and imports slashed, Vientiane Times reported.
The Lao government has also called for more intensive production of cattle, pigs, goats, chickens, ducks and geese, and has banned the import of these animals and their meat.
The import of tilapia and all freshwater fish has also been banned.
Other items associated with agriculture may continue to be imported, such as animal sperm for breeding purposes, rice seed, animal vaccine and equipment, medicinal products for animal use, and animal feed.
Businesses may also continue to import the raw materials of animal feed and vaccine that are not available in Laos, as well as agricultural equipment and machinery used in animal husbandry.
Certain animal products may be imported, but in compliance with the rules. They must have a specific use and not affect domestic production, and include premium beef, lamb and ostrich meat that is served in restaurants and large hotels.
Also permitted is the import of lard, pig skin, and lumps of meat used in processing by a specific company or project.
Seafood may be imported, but in compliance with strict management measures. Provinces may be allocated a specific quota periodically according to their actual needs./.
