The Bridge Asia Japan (BAJ) organisation has decided to help farmers in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue develop planting and breeding models for small scale production.

The 2.3 billion VND (109,000 USD) project under the form of non-refundable aid will be carried out at Hue city’s Thuy Xuan, Thuy Bieu and Huong Long wards.

With the aim of improving living standards for low-income farmers, the project will provide training courses and tours to Japan to learn about sample models, along with supporting them in agro-food distribution and marketing.

Over the years, Japan has been one of the province’s key ODA providers with the current sum reaching more than 500 million USD.

Five Japanese investors have also been helping the locality’s renovation and restoration of many cultural heritage sites in the Hue imperial relic complex with total funding of about 30 million USD.
Additionally, Japan has also been offering healthcare, education and human resources training to the city.-VNA
