Experience to develop the household economy in rural areas was shared at a workshop in the Mekong Delta province of Soc Trang on November 5.

Jointly held by the province and the Vietnam Women’s Union (VWU), the event was part of the ongoing Soc Trang - Mekong Delta Economic Cooperation Forum (MDEC).

It aimed at introducing excellent production models, finding measures to help women escape from poverty and connecting businesses with production households.

The VWU’s report shows that in the Mekong Delta, the household economy model quickly adapts to the market mechanism, contributing to increasing the efficiency of using natural resources and addressing unemployment in rural areas.

The union has provided assistance for over 665,000 households, helping 20,000 of them escape from poverty.

On the same day, another workshop on the life and career of agriculturalist Luong Dinh Cua, who was a pioneer in experimental agricultural science and provided farmers with innovative techniques to improve their harvests, took place within the framework of the MDEC – Soc Trang.-VNA
