VIETNAM: fuel subsidies not enough

"Central region fishermen forced to sell boats due to falling prices "

This is the title of an article published on 8 July 2009 in the website of Vietnam News Agency.

According to the article:
¨[...] the financial assistance has not been enough to compensate for the soaring diesel price. It now costs fishermen over VND100 million ($5,620) for a single fishing trip, and fisherman go on about four trips per year, according to Anh. The Government’s diesel assistance per year for one boat is only VND30 million ($1,690)."
