Doanh and his entourage were welcomed by Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Van Dung and representatives of local departments and agencies.
At the working session, Dung reported that
as of November 2018, the province has 9,839ha of citrus, of which about 5,174ha
are ready for harvest, yielding about 23,900kg per ha.
Orange trees are planted in Cao Phong, Lac
Thuy, Kim Boi and Lac Son districts, while pomelo trees are cultivated in Yen
Thuy, Luong Son and Tan Lac districts.
With high quality, some of local citrus
varieties are eligible for export. However, they have been delivered to
Hanoi and adjacent
provinces only. Given this, the provincial People’s Committee has instructed
the building of a factory specialised in citrus processing and preservation in
Cao Phong district, with an annual capacity of 20,000-22,000 tonnes. Besides,
the province will continue with mechanisms and policies to promote citrus
production towards high added value and sustainable development.
Deputy Minister Doanh acknowledged citrus
development in Hoa Binh, with high economic values and good quality, and asked
the locality to intensify the management work in order to raise values and
sustainable development of citrus, focusing on newly-cultivated areas.
He tasked the province with managing the
quality of citrus varieties and planning, applying science-technology in
production, seeking markets for products and promoting their brand names.
