Nhan, who is also head of the Central Committee for Food Hygiene and Safety, made the statement on November 9 while working with Hanoi municipal authorities on measures to fight against bird flu and human influenza. He stressed the need to raise public awareness of the bird flu epidemic and set up checkpoints to immediately detect the illegal transport of sick poultry. Violations must be strictly punished and all sick fowl must be culled, he added. The Deputy PM urged the Ministry of Health (MoH) and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) to provide updated information on the bad effects of eating sick poultry. He also called for relevant ministries and agencies to complete their plans on controlling the transport, trading and slaughtering of poultry, especially in border areas and wholesale markets. Earlier on November 6, Nhan and MARD Minister Cao Duc Phat inspected poultry trading at some big wholesale markets, including Ha Vi in Hanoi’s outlying district of Thuong Tin and Tu Dan in Khoai Chau district of neighbouring Hung Yen province. These two markets are the major chicken suppliers to Hanoi, meeting up to 80 percent of the capital city’s demand, equivalent to 60-80 tonnes daily. MoH Deputy Minister Nguyen Thanh Long warned against eating unhealthy food made from poor quality chickens, saying this could increase the risk of being infected with diseases. Moreover, he said, the residue of anti-biotics in sick poultry is often quite high, which can result in high cholesterol levels among consumers.... [read more]

Farmers bring their best birds to the first national contest for the Dong Tao chicken breed, which is prized for its meat. The fowl was once bred exclusively for the country’s royal families. “I might have second thoughts about selling the rooster for VND40 million ($1,760)," said Nguyen Van Cuong, who won the first prize with a one-year-old purebred rooster. “The contest is not about big prizes. It is more about creating a playing field for Dong Tao breeders who want to a place to network and see with their own eyes the most outstanding purebred chickens across the country,” said Le Quang Thang, chairman of Dong Tao breeder association.

Medicine, healthcare services see strongest price hike in August Medicine and healthcare services prices this August post the sharpest monthly hike, 6.18 percent, compared to five other goods and services categories that share the same upward trend, said the General Statistics Office (GSO) on August 24. The five other categories with rising price are education (up 0.47 percent); garment, hats and footwear (0.14 percent); beverage and cigarette (0.05 percent); household appliances and goods (0.05 percent); and other goods and services (0.11 percent).

As a result, consumer price index (CPI) in August rose by 0.1 percent from July, 2.57 percent from the same period last year and 2.58 percent from last December. The eight-month CPI climbed 1.91 percent year on year. Do Thi Ngoc, Deputy Director of the GSO’s Price Statistics Department, said costlier healthcare services prices are the biggest contributor, 0.28 percent, to the CPI growth. Their 8.12-percent increase in 16 provinces was scheduled in a joint circular between the health and finance ministries. Nine provinces and cities also augmented tuition fees as stipulated in a Government decree last year. Higher demand for educational tools like textbooks, notebooks and pens to prepare for the new school year also boosted education prices, she added. While food supply abundance made food prices fall slightly, lower construction demand…... [read more]
