Avian influenza A/H5N6 was recorded in two households in Tran Yen district and Yen Bai city between January 25 and February 9, affecting a total 9,500 poultry which were either dead or culled.
Despite a raft of difficulties facing Vietnam’s retail market, economists and insiders are still optimistic about the outlook for the sector in the time ahead, according to the Vietnam Report JSC.
Yen Bai province is striving for a 9 percent growth in the local index of industrial production, and 14.2 trillion VND (617.41 million USD) in industrial production value in 2021.
