A seminar was held from 3 to 5 October in Hanoi on biosecurity audit and control tools for pig farming. It brought together representatives from Vietnam, Lao, and Cambodia as well as cooperation partners in the field of African swine fever prevention.
Four French speakers (from the Institute of Pig Chain, a regional sanitary association, and the French Ministry of Agriculture) led this technical seminar on biosecurity control measures (current practices, level of requirements for audits, self-checks and official controls).
After a half-day introduction and presentation of the sanitary policies and situations in each country, in the presence of the Vietnamese Chief Veterinary Officer (CVO), workshops were organised as part of a public-private partnership, bringing together a panel of stakeholders from each country: central veterinary services, provincial veterinary services, private veterinarians, as well as representatives of the FAO, AVSF and WOAH.
In-depth discussions were held on the biosecurity requirements for different types of farm (commercial or family), based on the assessment grids used in French farms…
The results of this seminar, together with those of the studies conducted in parallel by AVSF and CIRAD, will help to establish the content of the biosecurity training courses to be rolled out in 2024 by ENSV-FVI and IFIP in the four countries covered by the program.
