culling of sick pigs. Cases of fraud in which people falsified the number of pigs culled in order to profit from the repayment policy should be strictly dealt with. The veterinary system at all levels should be strengthened and the transportation and slaughter of pigs should be controlled, the PM said. The damage already caused by the disease, including compensation for culled pigs and other expenses, was estimated at around VNĐ3.6trillion (US$153.8 million). Participants at the meeting also suggested raising the assistance for forces working to cull sick pigs which was equal to the price of hiring local workers, ranging from VNĐ300,000-500,000 ($13-$21) per day.
