An agriculture-industry-trade fair of 23 northern mountainous provinces from Ha Tinh northward will take place in Ha Giang province from May 3-9.

The event is jointly held by the National Agricultural Extension Centre, the People’s Committee of Ha Giang province, and Bac Ha Trade and Communication Group.

According to Nguyen Duc Vinh, Director of Ha Giang province’s Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, the fair is part of the 2013 national agricultural extension programme, featuring various activities to promote agriculture, industry and trade in these localities during the process of rural industrialisation and modernisation.

The event is expected to attract domestic and international enterprises with hundreds of stalls introducing farm and forest produce, aquatic products, processed food, agricultural machines, industrial and commercial products, and crafts.

Other activities such as seminars, providing technical documents, and introducing the provinces’ investment policies and strengths, will be held to build links and exchanges among farmers, managers, scientists and businesses.

In addition, the fair is an opportunity for Ha Giang province to introduce to visitors its tourism potential, such as Dong Van Stone Plateau and tourism products of ethnic minority people.-VNA
