Sept. 11 – Vietnam is set to build its first applied bio-technology research center costing VND530 billion in Cam Duong Commune, Cam My District.

The facility should be complete by 2010 and provide industry products and services by 2020.

The 200-hectare facility will expand the country's bio-technology industry towards the diagnoses and treatment of diseases, preventive health, and environmental protection.

It also aims to use bio-technology to upgrade techniques on breeding plants and animals.

Scientists at the center are encouraged to find ways to contribute to agricultural production and develop networks that link business and farming communities to new research.
