The construction of a large-scale organic farm began at Dak Long commune, Kon Plong district in the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum on April 3, the first of its kind in the locality.

The project has an investment of more than 60 billion VND (2.8 million USD) invested by Kon Tum Bellest, a joint venture between Vietnam, New Zealand and the Republic of Korea.

The 100ha farm will grow beans and strawberry, with an expected annual output of 45 tonnes of beans and 1,200 tonnes of strawberries.

All organic produce will be checked and accredited by international organisations before being sold domestically or exported.

The project will offer more than 2,000 jobs for local labourers.-VNA
