SINGAPORE: Singapore Food Industries is studying the feasibility of setting up a pig farm in China's Jilin Province.

The feasibility study will be completed within the next six to 12 months.

The plan is to have the pig farm and pork-processing facilities within a food zone.

Singapore's National Development Minister Mah Bow Tan says Singapore will invest in the project and provide its expertise in food safety in the joint partnership with the Jilin government.

Mr Mah said, "The long-term objective is to provide supply of food, not just for local consumption, and export to Singapore, which is in line with the overall objective of ensuring food security in Singapore."
