Hau Giang (VNA)
– Officials from the People’s Committee of the Mekong Delta province of Hau Giang met with representatives from the organisation for agricultural technology transfer and trade (FACT) and several enterprises from the Republic of Korea (RoK) on October 30 towards implementing high-tech agriculture projects in the locality.

Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Truong Canh Tuyen briefed RoK firms on the locality’s socio-economic development, agricultural production, and the future development of Hau Giang’s high-tech agriculture.

He expressed his hope that the cooperation between Hau Giang, FACT, and RoK enterprises will continue to be promoted in the future.

FACT’s  Kim Jin Hean said that RoK firms have a deep understanding of the trend of clean cultivation in Hau Giang, saying he hopes that the cooperation between his agency, the locality, and the Hau Giang high-tech agriculture sector will be strengthened, contributing to improving the value chain of local agricultural products.

In late May, FACT signed an agreement with Hau Giang to increase the use of RoK biological products for the cultivation of pineapple, pomelo, and mangoe. Accordingly, the organisation will provide 17,000 USD worth of 20 key biological products to the locality.

In 2017, FACT ran a cooperation project with a village in the local commune of Vinh Vien, Long My district, under which it supplied 13 biological products and some technological equipment for rice cultivation over two crops on an area of 14ha, at a cost of 8,370 USD.

In the time to come, RoK enterprises will coordinate with the Hau Giang high-tech agriculture sector to build value chains for the locality’s key produces. –VNA
