Welcome Vietnam!
In March we had a focus group on catfish and shrimps at the Vietnamese Southern Center of Agricultural Rural Policy and Strategy (SCAP) in Ho Chi Minh City and a fantastic fieldwork at various places in Mekong Delta. Welcome to Nguyen Van Giap and his staff, who joined our network looking forward the economics of catfish and shrimp farms in an international comparison.
