Businesses from China ’s Taiwan signed five Memoranda of Understanding on agriculture cooperation with their partners from northern Quang Ninh province, in Ha Long city, on December 10.

The cooperation covers orchid planting; tea cultivation and processing; mushroom growing; aquatic product preservation; and abalone breeding.

Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Dang Huy Hau said Quang Ninh has favourable conditions for developing agriculture and boasts stable consumption market.

However, the province is encountering difficulties in manufacturing and applying science-technology due to financial resource shortage.

He hoped the partnership between local and Taiwanese businesses can produce products not only for the domestic market but also for exports.-VNA
