Currently, the value of European chicken breast is 2-3 times higher than in Vietnam.”

Tran Van Chien, vice chairman of the People’s Committee of Tay Ninh province, said the construction of facilities and areas free of animal diseases is important in implementing the livestock development strategy. Therefore, Tay Ninh agricultural industry will reorganize production stages, promote the construction of animal disease-free breeding areas, and encourage enterprises to invest in the construction of advanced livestock and poultry slaughterhouses, diversify consumer markets and to form numerous high-tech breeding and slaughter chains.
