(HBO) - The Department of Agriculture and Rural Development of northern Hoa Binh province will invest nearly 3 billion VND (129,000 USD) to implement a safe vegetable production and distribution project in value chain for 2018-2020.

Under a decision of the provincial People’s Committee, the investment is sourced from the budget of the national target programme on building new-style rural areas and the corresponding capital of cooperatives joining the project.

In 2019-2020, the project receives 1.23 billion VND (52,890 USD) from the national target programme on building new-style rural areas and the corresponding capital from cooperatives and locals directly participating in the project.

The project will be carried out on nearly 66 hectares. Two cooperatives joining production are Thanh An organic agriculture cooperative (Nhuan Trach commune, Luong Son district) and Tay Bac safe vegetable cooperative (Quyet Chien commune, Tan Lac district). The first distribution partners are TH True Milk and Institute of Organic Agricultural Economics.

Cooperatives joining the project will be supported to build new-style agricultural cooperative models and implement safe vegetable production chain to Vietnamese Good Agricultural Practices (VietGAP). Afterward, they will be assisted in developing brands and links with businesses to sell products through economic contracts.

By December 2020, the project will be completed and expanded across the province./.
