Mr. Mai Thanh Tung - Deputy Director presented the contents of the seminar. Mr Tung stressed: "Honey is a natural product, is a luxury food by consumers in the country and the world appreciated by its natural characteristics." However, in recent years, quality honey by rigorous testing, increased product costs and business risks are high (from 7 up to 25 target indicators), mainly residues and antibiotics. So the cause of antibiotic residues and residues from?
The main cause is due to the beekeepers, such as:
- Sugar left in the feeding process.
- Treatment is not true way.
- Supplement food of unknown origin.
To ensure quality of honey, we need to:
- Beehives must be strong.

Therefore, radical solution to the bee industry development - must be "organic beekeeping under conditions of Vietnam" (We will have a workshop on this issue.) Chinese honey bear against sales tax dumped when the U.S. market: the tax rate is more than $ 2.5 per kg, so Chinese honey can not into the U.S. market. China is to find ways to deliver honey to other countries. "Prohibited the exchange, or sent honey from the other apiaries," Mr. Trong said.
Argentina's honey production last year reached 55.000 to 60.000 mts - the lowest level ever. This has affected the supply of honey on gioi.Rieng Vietnam still rely on the U.S. market (when the EU market is still in a state of "war plan, real estate," with honey Vietnam). Therefore, in 2011 Vietnam will honey under pressure from U.S. Customs and FDA in check and control the traceability and quality honey.

For the south eastern province, the dry season will arrive later than every year and there will be rain season, the cold phase of the night. Amplitude difference of day and night temperatures high.
