Mexico's pork export dropped 90 percent, or around 30,000 tons, due to the spread of the A/H1N1 flu, according to a report on Monday.

Since the World Trade Organization (WTO) declared the A/H1N1 flu outbreak in Mexico a "public health emergency of international concern," 20 nations have imposed import controls on Mexican meat, said a report from the Public Finance Study Center.

Despite the impact on the export of pork, the poultry industry has not been affected, it added.

Mexico's pork export totals some 22 million U.S. dollars each month with some 3.9 million dollars' worth going to Japan, the largest single export market.
