Can Tho (VNA) - Japan’s Satake Group has expressed an interest in investing in hi-tech agriculture in the Mekong Delta City of Can Tho.

During a working session with Can Tho authorities in the city on January 14, Satake Asia Chairman Dave Tanaka said his group’s products have proven effective via a three-month trial in agricultural production in Can Tho and other localities in Vietnam.

Since November 2015, the group introduced several hi-tech agricultural machines to Can Tho, in a bid to raise productivity and product value while protecting farmers’ health.

The group called for local support for organising an exhibition of its technologies next April to introduce its products to more local farmers and enterprises.

The Japanese firm also invited local representatives to visit its branch in Thailand later this year.

Vice Chairman of the city People’s Committee Dao Anh Dung called on the group to facilitate access to its products among local people and enterprises through price policy, installment plan and technology transfer.-VNA
