The Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on Emerging Infectious Diseases has approved the recommendation of the National Task Force Group on Food Security for the unhampered movement of pork products from Visayas and Mindanao despite continued incidence of the African swine fever.

However, all science-based precautionary and quarantine measures must be observed in the passage of hog shipment from the said regions, said Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque on Friday.

The latest directive was contained in IATF Resolution 97 approved on January 28.

Roque said the IATF also supported the proposal of the Department of Agriculture (DA) to designate the nautical highway from Luzon and Mindanao, and the Maharlika Highway in Luzon as Special Hog Lanes.

The IATF, he added, directed the DA, the Department of the Interior and Local Government, and the Department of Trade and Industry to jointly implement the said resolution.
