Vietnam to monitor imported food

Governments and animal health departments will closely inspect any food imports from overseas countries into Vietnam, said the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

In a recent dispatch to provinces and cities around the country, the Ministry has ordered all provincial and municipal governments and relevant agencies, to supervise any animal products imported from foreign countries into Vietnam. As the Tet holiday is quickly approaching, consumption of foreign imports could be very high.

The Ministry has also asked government officials, to closely monitor border crossings, especially the ones like Tan Thanh, in the Northern Province of Lang Son; Cau Treo and Lao Bao in the central province of Ha Tinh; and finally, Quang Tri and Moc Bai, in the southern province of Tay Ninh.
