After confirmation of African Swine Fever (PSA) on wild boars in Germany in September 2020, several countries reacted by banning German pork imports. After intense negotiations, the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) managed to get third Countries to accept the concept of "regionalization," allowing pork exports from PSA-free areas.

As the last country to accept this regionalization agreement, Vietnam reopens its market to pork imports from Germany. In addition, BMEL, with the participation of the Federal Chancellery, continues with the negotiations to reach a regionalization agreement with China.
