The Chairman of the People’s Committee of northern Bac Giang province has asked the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development to work with local authorities and businesses to enhance collaboration in processing vegetables and selling processed products.

The province will set up a steering board on developing safe and processed vegetable production, he said, adding that the relevant agencies will review localities’ production plans and propose suitable vegetable varieties, especially in areas specialising in growing plants for processing and export.

At the same time, they should work to complete production processes for each vegetable and develop joint venture models that facilitate product selling and increase businesses’ responsibility for farmers.

Local enterprises also need to build their own plans and orientations in producing, processing and selling agricultural products in order to develop stable material areas serving their demands, he added.-VNA
