Next, Mr Trong also outlined the basic concept of VIETGAP , and apply this in beekeeping and in Dong Nai conditions.
Mr. Mai Thanh Tung - Chairman of DBA , Deputy Director - stated the cause of contaminated honey .
1 . Bees for additional food of unknown origin during harvest season.
2 . Beekeepers harvest too much, make bees weakness (no time for feeding) cause disease, eggs not to be larva, diarrhea , ...
3 . Carbendazim contanminated honey infected by drug farmers to use crop plants .
Mr. Tung invited a number of beekeepers have representative in 2013 to present their experiences .

" Mr. Hung presents how to move apiary in the honey crop 2012 - 2013"
" Mr. Nam share his own experience in honey harvest process"
" One other important issues, beekeepers are limited in writting record in beekeeping . Recording handbook is extremely important in traceability. " Mr. Tung said.
" To solve the root of the problem of antibiotic residues in honey , Dong Nai beekeepers to create the strong condition in apiary, reasonable moving apiary and writting record in beekeeping." Mr Tung said.
In the process of feeding and harvest , beekeepers should be noted :
1 / Each honey crop need to move in order to maintain strong colonies .
2 / Feeding supplement powder , pollen throughout the extraction process to ensure no lacking of food .
Another problem in VIETGAP is ensuring food safety and hygiene in the apiaries : instruments, cans, drums containing honey, apiaries placement , ...
To create a more vibrant atmosphere , Mr Trong have questions with prizes for beekeepers .
" Why should we feed for bees when apiary move to harvest another honey source? " , " With 7-8 frames in each beeshive is better or 9-10 frames in each beeshive is better in harvest season? Why? "
Although the question is quite close, almost beekeeper knows but to explain the mechanism is not simply reasonable .
Next, Mr. Trong stated forecast of The international honey market in 2014 has many disadvantages .
For the European market : Although , from Vietnam 04/01/2013 Honey is back EU market ( after a long interruption for nearly 10 years ) . However, for export to this market is not simple , the technical barriers are quite strict .
For the US. market: We're influenced by Argentina and Brazil honey. Because Argentina and Brazil honey blocked in European markets ( due to problems GMO) should move to the U.S. market , making abundant supply in the United States . That will affect the price of honey of Vietnam.
" The company will make every effort to get the best price for honey beekeepers in the 2013-2014 " . Mr Trong stressed .
This year , although the company also faced many difficulties in exports due to technical barriers in the U.S., but also trying to extract from company profits to fund the organization 's activities in the club .
