With the output of 4 million tons, An Giang is the biggest rice producer among 13 provinces in Mekong Delta. Despite great efforts made by the provincial authorities and farmers and new production models, rice production there is still in fragmented. And while the output is high, the quality is low.

This is the common situation of rice production in the Mekong Delta which now produces 90 percent of total rice exports of Vietnam. The problems faced by the delta could get worse with protectionism and technical barriers set by many import markets. Tiếp tục đọc

A report from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released in September 2015 showed that Carbendazim is listed in the C group, substances which can cause cancer. In other countries, Carbendazim is prohibited as it is considered plant protection chemical which has latent high risks to the environment and human health.In 1992, research found that Carbendazim and its derivative Benomyl have had negative impact on those people who have contact with Benomyl (headache, diarrhea and sexual dysfunction) in Florida in the US.

In 2013, the scientists from California Univesrity found the relation between Parkinson and the pesticide with Benomyl, a derivative of Carbendazim.

In Europe, Carbendazim is found in the list of chemicals which have impacts on human’s endocrine function released by the EC in 1999. It can disrupt the development of sperm and testicular damage in adult mice, thus leading to to infertility.

Carbendazim is a very dangerous chemical which causes cancer and birth defects. The organization always believes that it is necessary to prohibit Carbendazim.

PAN (Pesticide Action Network), a network of 600 non-government organizations, research institutes and individuals from more than 90 countries who work for the purpose of replacing risky pesticides with environmentally friendly substances, also pointed out that Carbendazim is a very dangerous chemical which causes cancer and birth defects. The organization always believes that it is necessary to prohibit Carbendazim.

While Carbendazim is prohibited in many countries in the world, it is still used in Vietnam in a large quantity. Tiếp tục đọc

In small residential quarters, which cannot receive water from regional works, people will use water from salt and brackish-water treatment stations.

He said the Mekong Delta should prioritize the use of surface water from the Tien and Hau Rivers for daily life and production needs. Tiếp tục đọc

The United States has renewed its demand for Cambodia to repay a war debt of $500m amid President Donald Trump’s push to improve the state budget. Such a demand has met with an outcry from Cambodian political leaders and their people, who have consistently called the debt “dirty” and “blood-stained”.

Clearly, the memory of the United States’ war in Indochina continues to shape Cambodian perceptions of and foreign policy towards the US. Cambodia is reluctant to pay the debt. However, should the US keep forcing Cambodia to service the debt, its moral high ground may be adversely affected. Tiếp tục đọc
