The northern province of Ha Nam will provide one hectare for two Japanese investors to implement their pilot projects of cultivating clean vegetables and fruit.

Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Mai Tien Dung made the statement at a working session with representatives from Japan’s Nishimori Ltd., Co and HBC International Co. on May 19.

The province will also create the best conditions for the Japanese investors to implement the projects and consider expanding the cooperation based on the projects’ outcomes, he said.

Highlighting the province’s strength in land and workforce, Dung said Ha Nam is facing certain difficulties related to varieties, processing technologies and product advertising.

Therefore, the province plans to boost cooperation with experienced partners in the field, especially those from Japan, aiming to turn itself into one of the country’s leading providers of quality vegetables and fruit for both home and overseas markets.

The Japanese representatives said they want to introduce their advanced technologies and quality varieties to Ha Nam province.

On the occasion, the foreign companies showed technologies developed to analyse the quality and detect pesticide residues in some farm produce.-VNA
