VIETNAM - Thoi Bao Kinh Te Viet Nam (Vietnam Economics Time) spoke with Hoang Kim Giao, vice director of the Breeding Department under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) about the industry’s new expansion ambitions.

At present the breeding industry is seen to have many opportunities in its development. What should we know about developments within the industry?

The second International Breeding and Animal food Exhibition was held in HCM City from September 6-11. The first exhibition in 2004, in Ha Noi, attracted 120 exhibitors from 15 countries, the one we just had in HCM City attracted 29 countries with 191 stands and even delegations from as far away as the Middle East and Africa.

The breeding industry will be an integral component by 2020, in the areas of income, environment, population control and public health, according to the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).

The Viet Nam breeding industry will strongly develop medium and large scale enterprises that can handle high production output, competitiveness, hygiene standards and environmental protection standards will all also be ratcheted up.

In 2006, the proportion of breeding in agriculture stood at 22.3 per cent. MARD wants to elevate this figure to 30 per cent by 2010 and 35 per cent by 2015.
