HCM CITY (VNS)— The HCM City Food and Foodstuff Association (FFA) should focus more on developing links between enterprises and farmers, the deputy chairwoman of the HCM City People's Committee has said.

Nguyen Thi Hong said this would enable farmers to find more outlets for their products.

She also noted that firms could place orders with farmers for products that are in demand both in domestic and foreign markets.

Speaking at a meeting held in HCM City late August, Hong also called on FFA members to develop close links with each other and join forces to boost the development of the industry.

The association's deputy chairman, Nguyen Ngoc An, said the FFA had carried out activities to help member companies stay afloat in recent years. — VNS
