Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam's farm produce can completely compete with products in other countries around the world, Head of Creating Shared Values Projects of Central Retail Corporation Public Company Limited (CRC) Paul Le told Nong nghiep Viet Nam (Vietnam Agriculture) newspaper.

In a recent interview granted to the newspaper, Le said agriculture is one of the key sectors of Vietnam, noting that the country boasts many traditional products and regional specialties, especially the variety of seasonal products.

The Thailand-based CRC is one of the retail chains that are effectively implementing activities to promote and consume Vietnamese agricultural products on the international market.

The CRC’s vision is to develop with Vietnam through cooperating and supporting Vietnamese products and brands, and local suppliers, Le stressed.

Its development will always go hand in hand with the prosperity of Vietnam, he said, adding that the firm’s programme to accompany Vietnamese agricultural products is one of the the CRC's seven sustainable development strategies in the country.

The business will cooperate with Vietnamese suppliers in building and developing modern retail systems for Vietnamese goods.

According to Le, each product of Vietnam has a very long development history. For example, Thanh Ha lychee has development history of up to 250 years, which means that Vietnamese farmers have up to 250 seasons to gradually better the quality of lychees. This is the reason why Vietnamese lychees are among the best in the world.

In the northern highlands and mountainous regions of Vietnam, the horticulture sector has evolved over hundreds of years to produce distinctive and fresh vegetable products, he said.

Many giant firms in the world have been setting up their supply networks in Vietnam, to be able to directly access the best products from local farmers.

That is reason for Le to believe that Vietnamese agricultural products have many competitive strengths on the international market./.
