HCM CITY — Trà Vinh Province is calling for investment in 10 agricultural projects that are part of a plan to develop the area’s agriculture and improve the lives of farmers.
The projects, worth a total of VNĐ969 billion (US$42 million), include a freshwater pond in Duyên Hải District’s Đôn Châu Commune; a quality assurance programme for agriculture and aquatic products; animal husbandry projects; new factories for processing meat and fodder; and other programmes to boost agriculture and fishery.
The province’s Department of Agriculture and Rural Development targets increasing agriculture earnings by 4 per cent by the end of the year.
Agricultural businesses currently account for only 6 per cent of businesses operating in Trà Vinh. — VNS
