Solid waste discharges to Phan Rí Cửa beach, Tuy Phong District, Bình Thuận Province. — Photo zing.vn Thu Vân Years of rapid economic development have left Việt Nam with negative externalities – noise and poor air quality arising from pollution and road congestion. Pollution was once accepted as the inevitable by-product of industrial development and promoted as economic progress.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has called on farmers to quickly resume pig farming to ensure adequate domestic supply during the last months of the year. Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Xuan Cuong speaks during a meeting with farmers in Hung Yen Province on October 16. During a Wednesday visit to pig farms in Hung Yen Province where the first outbreak of African swine fever occurred, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Xuan Cuong said that after eight months since the swine fever outbreak, pork production has decreased by 8.2%. "As pork accounts for 65-70% of Vietnamese diets, the falling supply has greatly affected the local market," the official said.
