The Steering Committee for the Central Highlands and the Vingroup Joint Stock Company on October 3 agreed to present 5,000 heifers worth 75 billion VND (3.5 million USD) to poor households in the regional provinces.

This is part of the social welfare support package committed by Vingroup at a recent conference to promote investment in the region held in Gia Lai province.

The cattle, from 8-10 months old, are easy to adapt to the region’s climate and environmental conditions.

Vingroup has to date given 10,000 cows to poor households nationwide, mostly those belonging to the ethnic minority groups and in remote areas, helping them improve their living standards.-VNA
