GIA LAI — Construction on a 6ha-fruit and vegetable processing centre began in the Central Highlands province of Gia Lai on Sunday.

Financed by Đồng Giao Foodstuff JSC, the centre will include three factories with a total production capacity of 30,000 tonnes of products annually.

Once operational in July, the centre is forecast to post a revenue from VNĐ1.8 trillion (US$78.95 million) to VNĐ2 trillion  ($88 million) each year, contributing up to $4.4 million to the State budget while creating thousands of local jobs, the company’s representatives said at the ground breaking ceremony.

In his speech at the event, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyễn Xuân Cường hailed the company’s decision to kick off the project, which comes in line with the Government’s direction in promoting the application of advanced technology in farming production and in establishing close links from production to processing and consumption.

According to Cường, the project will help create a breakthrough for the development of provincial agriculture and that of the region as well. — VNS
