$30.8 million project will develop organic fruit and vegetables on 69 hectares in northern province.
On July 14 the Ha Nam Provincial People’s Committee worked with Vingroup on the implementation of the Vineco project, growing organic fruit and vegetables of export quality.
The project will be deployed on an area of 69 ha in Nhan Khang commune and have total investment of VND662 billion ($30.8 million).
The goal of the project is to develop an area of raw materials using high technology in processing. It will also have a research center to restore, improve and create new crops. Principal activities will include using advanced cultivation methods, research, developing new technologies for production, training, providing engineering services, quality control and technological innovation. The project will use greenhouse technology from Japan and Israel as well as automated irrigation technology from Israel.
A representative from Vingroup said it expects Ha Nam will hand over the area shortly so the project can grow a winter crop. The Provincial People’s Committee must also have policies and measures to accumulate land for large-scale production. The Group has recommended the province upgrade infrastructure around the project area, including roads and irrigation and electricity systems.
Speaking at the meeting, Chairman of the Provincial People’s Committee Mai Tien Dung agreed with Vingroup’s proposal. “This project is consistent with the province’s policy of agricultural development towards industrialization,” he said. “In addition to creating favorable conditions in policies and legal procedures, the province will invest in the infrastructure nearby the project.”
He also asked Vingroup to quickly complete procedures and financial and scheduling commitments for the project.
