A representative from the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, Jong Ha Bae: “The Vietnamese government has targeted 8 million dollars to subsidize the milk industry. However, the cow farming industry remains on a small scale in Vietnam. We should help farmers to gain market and service access to ensure sustainable industry growth.”
