GUATEMALA - After five years of prevention work, Guatemala has declared itself free of classical swine fever.

President Jimmy Morales said the Association of Porcicultures of Guatemala (APOGUA) and the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food (MAGA) helped lead the work.

"Thanks to the constant work we can declare Guatemala free from classical swine fever. This is a first step towards achieving exports of this pork internationally," said the president.

The country can now resume negotiations with trading partners and resume exports of live pigs, products and by-products, mainly in Central America.
