ViParc Project Status Meeting
Dong Thap, Vietnam, 15 December 2017
ViParc held a partners meeting on 15 December in the Vietnamese province of Dong Thap, where 41 participants discussed past activities and provided inputs for its next steps. Considerable time was spent on planning for ViParc’s intervention phase, expected to start in March 2018. Many of the veterinarians present mentioned that the new phase would likely bring with it more challenges, due in large part to Vietnam restructuring its veterinary system. The Dong Thap Sub-Department of Livestock Production and Animal Health, however, “will continue to support ViParc unconditionally,” said Dr. Vo Be Hien, the Sub-Department’s director.
