TÂY NINH – Tây Ninh Province will continue to focus on encouraging investment in agriculture for the next five years.
In 2016 – 20 it had organised a number of activities to facilitate investment in agriculture and rural areas, especially by foreign investors, attracting VNĐ3.6 trillion (US$155.3 million), including from large corporations such as Lavifood Joint Stock Company and Vinamilk.
The projects are of large size and use modern technologies.
Trịnh Ngọc Phương, director of the province Department of Planning and Investment, said policies and activities to facilitate investment in agriculture have been successful in attracting foreign and domestic businesses.
Nguyễn Đình Xuân, director of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, said the province is working on earmarking more land to attract more clean hi-tech agricultural projects.
The province has specific goals of attracting at least one fruit and vegetable processing and preservation facility that works closely with farmers, a modern plant to slaughter cattle and process meat, a seafood processing factory, and a milk production factory.
It also aims to have at least 40 per cent of its agricultural produce meeting GAP standards or their equivalent. – VNS
