A ground-breaking ceremony for a closed-loop dairy complex was held in Moc Chau District, Son La Province on Saturday.

The project comprises an eco, high-tech cow farm, and a high-tech milk processing plant. The cow farm will also offer eco-tourism services, over a total area of 150ha and an investment worth VND1 trillion (US$43.1 million).

Covering 26ha, the VND2 trillion plant is designed to have a daily capacity of nearly 500 tonnes of milk initially, which will double in the second phase.

The Moc Chau Dairy Cattle Breeding JSC (Moc Chau Milk) and Vietnam Dairy Products JSC (Vinamilk) are the main investors in the project.

Present at the ceremony, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh pointed out the unique potential of Moc Chau, which he said could enable the locality to develop agriculture, industry, services and tourism.

Moc Chau is expected to become a major economic centre of Son La and the northwestern region at large, he said.

The leader said the project would help to restructure the local agriculture towards modernity, raise added values, and form a sustainable agricultural product production and consumption chain.

He asked Vinamilk, Moc Chau Milk and Son La to contribute to promoting the circular, green economy and environmental protection through the project and others.

Son La should review its planning scheme to fully tap its potential, opportunities and competitive edge, and adopt typical policies and mechanisms to attract more resources, especially from the public-private partnership (PPP), to spur development, the PM said.

He also asked the insiders to ensure the interests of businesses, people and the State harmoniously, and pay attention to the resettlement work, saying residents in the project area must be moved to better places. — VNS
