Duong (VNA) – The Red River Delta province of Hai Duong will create
favourable conditions for businesses to invest in agriculture, especially in
high-tech agriculture, post-harvest preservation, slaughterhouse construction and
production chain development, local officials have said.
Targeting a modern agriculture which applies state-of-the-art technologies and
creates high-quality and competitive products, the province has offered a
line-up of preferential policies for investors.
Support in terms of credits, land rental, infrastructure development and
administrative procedures is among the province’s preferences for investors,
said Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Nguyen Manh Hien.
At an agricultural investment promotion conference held in Hai Duong on June 18,
Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Xuan Cuong suggested that
the province should pay due attention to providing training and encouraging
farmers to connect with others to form agricultural businesses.
Identifying strategic products and outlining transparent and favourable
policies for investors will help the local agriculture sector to move up on the
ladder to a new development stage, Cuong stressed.
The province is housing over 11,700 enterprises, however, only 1,600 of
which are investing in agriculture. Total investment in local agriculture is
valued at more than 15 trillion VND (658.5 million USD), focusing on farm
produce processing, animal foodstuff and production linkages.-VNA
