Country Report
The government in Vietnam has met its goal of' basically' containing bird flu by the end of February, 2004. International visitors to Vietnam fell by 6.2 percent in February, compared to the same month in 2003, due to the impact of bird flu. An official from the National Administration of Tourism said that while the fall in visitors would damage the economy, no international visitors to Vietnam had contracted the flu. Bird flu is unlikely to have any long-term impact on the economy as a result, our short-term risk rating for Vietnam remains on 50.0.
