Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Lê Minh Hoan talks to the Government Portal about the consumption of lychee and other agricultural products during the pandemic
Consumers can register to buy a large volume of lychees – a minimum of a tonne – after inputting basic information like name, e-mail, phone number, address and amount of lychee.
The COVID-19 health crisis and resulting wide-ranging and deeply-felt economic upheaval has flipped the logistics industry on its head, leaving ill-protected freight firms in dire need of emergency State support to survive hardships.
More than 2,300 people attended a teleconference on Saturday promoting lychee consumption at home and abroad held in the northern province of Bắc Giang.
Thiều lychee, a unique fruit of the northern province of Bắc Giang, is expected to record VNĐ5.5 trillion (US$240.28 million) in value this year if it can retain its current price until the end of the fruit season.
Lục Ngạn District in the northern province of Bắc Giang see a rich harvest of lychee this year, with its growers happier than in previous seasons because lychee prices have reached highest level ever.
The 2017 Lục Ngạn–Bắc Giang Lychee Week in Hà Nội kicked off at the Big C Thăng Long Supermarket on June 16, with “thiều” lychee being the special draw for customers.
