The Japan International cooperation Agency (JICA) is funding a 4.1 billion VND (195,000 USD) project to help farmers in central Quang Nam province improve their incomes from vegetable production in the 2013-16 period.

Vice chairman of the Quang Nam Union of Friendship Organisations Hoang Chau Sinh said Japanese experts from the Minamiboso City International Cooperation Planning Committee would provide training courses on sales promotions, management and processing technology for local farmers.

“Around 14,000 farmers from the district of Thang Binh, Duy Xuyen, Dien Ban and Tien Phuoc along with those from Hoi An would be trained how to produce safe vegetables, market their products and form distribution networks throughout the province,” Sinh said.-VNA
