[paper in French]The crisis of avian influenza occurred in Vietnam in late 2003 has affected the organization;of the local poultry value chain. This crisis has resulted in an alliance between the Vietnamese government;and agro-industrial sector considered more capable than the traditional one, to meet the requirements of;“biosecurity”. In the short term, this alliance has allowed agro-industrial groups to develop and to take;the control of a growing number of activities in the avian chain through a process of vertical integration;(animal raising slaughtering, retailing) and, to a lesser extent, through contracting with farmers. This;movement was slowed down once the crisis abated, since consumers turned back to traditional products,;eliminating thus the less competitive groups. Thus, in the medium term, instead of benefiting the industrial;sector at the expense of the traditional one, as one could expect, this crisis allowed a small number of;agro-industrial groups, and especially international groups (we discuss in more detail the Asian group;Charoen Pokphand) to establish their position in a market certainly promising, in the long term, despite;its many hazards.
