Hau Giang (VNA) – The Republic of Korea (RoK) organisation for agricultural technology transfer and trade (FACT) signed an agreement with the Mekong Delta province of Hau Giang to increase the use of biological products of the RoK for growing pineapple, pomelo and mango.

FACT will provide 17,000 USD worth of 20 biological products to the locality.

Lee Won Og, FACT Director said that in the future, the organisation will work with and assist Hau Giang in personnel training, equipment and technology transfer to help the locality’s agricultural sector develop and improve incomes of farmers.

Meanwhile, Truong Canh Tuyen, Vice Chairman of the Hau Giang People’s Committee said Hau Giang hopes to receive technology to produce the biological products, thus enhancing its agricultural production value and expanding ties with FACT.

In 2017, FACT ran a cooperation project with a village of Vinh Vien commune, Long My district, under which it supplied 13 biological products and some technological equipment for rice cultivation in two crops on an area of 14 hectares at a cost of 9,000 USD.

Le Hoang Xuyen, Director of the management board of the high-technology agriculture park of Hau Giang said FACT was one of the first organisations to cooperate with and invest in the park since the park was formed in August 2012.

The park has a total area of 5,200 hectares in Long My district, with production area of 5,000 hectares.-VNA
