“The Russian import ban hurts,” said Mogens Jensen, minister of trade and development. “But we are helping to open to open new markets for Danish export companies and special food in Vietnam and the Philippines, which have high growth rates of six to seven percent and a great demand for pork.”

Jensen is heading an export visit starting January 19, along with 20 companies, to both countries to boost sales.
