Along with infrastructure development, many new models of cooperatives associating with value chains and applying VietGAP standards in production were established.

In 2020, seven cooperatives and four cooperative groups were set up in the district, lifting the number of cooperatives and cooperative groups to 33 and 39, respectively, generating jobs for about 2,000 labourers with a monthly per capita income of about 3 million VND.
