Currently, only one Vietnamese company is planning to export processed chicken to Japan. This enterprise has built a chicken slaughtering and processing in southern Dong Nai province, the official added.
Previously on March 26, the Ministry announced the suspension of imports of poultry products, hatching eggs and chicks from Tennessee after a form of bird flu highly lethal to poultry was found in the US state.
That ban was also issued after a WOAH warning and will remain in place until it is certain that they are free from the disease.
According to the Tennessee Department of Agriculture, in March, two flocks were found to be infected with H7N9, the state's first infection of bird flu in more than a year.
