Hanoi (VNA) -
The northern province of Lao Cai will host an agricultural trade fair on “One Commune, One Product” (OCOP) products from the northern region at the Kim Thanh Exhibition and Convention Centre on October 22-26.

The fair will feature 318 booths run by regional cities and provinces, research institutes, agro-businesses, and cooperatives showcasing star-rated OCOP products and high-quality agricultural, forestry, and fishery products.

It will also exhibit key export items - vegetables, pepper, cashew nuts, coffee, and rice - as well as effective agricultural models, technologies, and agricultural services.

The fair provides an opportunity for northern cities and provinces to introduce the potential and advantages they possess in agriculture and rural tourism services and for regional companies and cooperatives to meet and seek partnerships, said Dao Van Ho, Director of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development’s Trade Promotion Centre for Agriculture.

A forum will be held within the framework of the fair to discuss how to manage the production and distribution of OCOP products for export./.
