From Jan. to Mar. 2016, food monitoring activities on AMR bacteria (ESBL-producing E.coli) in FY 2016 has started in Hanoi, Nha Trang and HCMC. A Japanese expert visited HCMC and Hanoi to join with Vietnamese Institutions' monitoring activities in March. During his visit, Binh Dien Whole Salemarket Company (BDWSM), which has collected food samples and provided them, organized a training session for BDWSM staff about a proper food sampling method. The Japanese expert made a basic lecture on "Sampling for microbiological food monitoring" for the BDWSM staff of the division of food safety control. In Hanoi, National Institute of Nutrition (NIN) shared the latest monitoring results with the expert and discussed a plan in FY 2016.
