As many as 200 domestic and foreign scientists and managers are attending the 5th International Waterfowl Conference (WWC) in Hanoi on November 6-8.

Themed “Sustainable Waterfowl Production”, the event builds on rapidly expanding and increasingly sophisticated waterfowl industries in Asia .

It provides an important forum for reviewing the latest advances in waterfowl research as well as in-depth discussion and exchange of information on sustainable waterfowl production now and in the future.

An interesting field trip will bring participants to a duck farm in Hanoi to demonstrate new methods of sustainable waterfowl production.

The conference is jointly held by the World Poultry Science Association’s Vietnam branch and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.-VNA
