CAN THO (VNS) — Representatives of a Japanese enterprise met authorities from the Mekong Delta City of Can Tho on Tuesday to discuss the development of a cattle-rearing project in Song Hau plantation.
The Japanese Beef Import-Export Association (J-BIX) is expected to decide the final investment amount upon the completion of their survey in December this year.
Director of Overseas Markets of J-BIX Nakashima said the project aimed to develop both beef and dairy farms.
It will ensure high-quality and high-yield breeding cows in tandem with clean and healthy feed for the herds.
Technology will be utilised in farming and processing to meet international food safety standards.
The company will also devise environment-friendly and advanced approaches to farm waste treatment, while enhancing farming efficiency.
During the meeting, Vice-Chairman of the Can Tho People's Committee Dao Anh Dung said the Song Hau plantation should work closely with the Japanese firm to implement the project effectively.
The project was expected to create jobs for local residents and contribute to local socio-economic development, Dung said.
In 2014, the city had only about 3,500 cows being raised by individuals. — VNS
