Abstract

Pork is the most popular type of meat in the daily meals of Vietnamese people. Pig industry provides jobs to a great number of Vietnamese farmers who in most of the cases run a very small-scaled operation. This paper investigates the current situation of the pig and pork consumption and distribution in Vietnam before the entry to WTO which is estimated by October 2006. The writers also try to make some estimation about the changes in the pig production and distribution after the accession. It is required that the pig and pork distribution system is modernized and improved immediately to face with the challenges brought about by the accession.
