The Department of Science and Technology of the north border province of Lang Son hosted a scientific workshop on July 20 on cooperation in planting grapes with Guangxi province of China.

Attending the workshop were leaders, technicians from the two provinces’ Departments of Sciences and Technology along with some concerned departments and sectors and representatives from Lang Son province.

The workshop reviewed results of the trial cooperative project of grapes planting between the two provinces, agreeing that the two grape strains introduced by the Chinese side showed good adaptation to local conditions in Lang Son.

In order to expand the area of planting and ensure productivity and fruit quality for sustainable development in the coming time, the managers and experts of both provinces were urged to transfer production techniques to their farmers./.
