Avian Flu Still A World Concern

The Bangladesh government will send seven poultry farmers abroad to learn more about bio-security in farms and bring that knowledge back to the country. Recent outbreaks of the bird-flu in Bangladesh has caused large losses in its growing poultry industry.

"They [poultry farm owners] will get first-hand knowledge on how foreign organisations maintain bio-security in their farms," [Abdul Latif Biswas, poultry sector, fisheries and livestock minister] said. "Most of the outbreaks occurred in the central part of the country … it's our fault," he observed. Highlighting contribution of the sector to the economy, he said, "The government is ready to give incentives to promote private sector initiatives in poultry industry. A new law has also been framed."
