Hai Duong Province, e-commerce platforms and local produce exporters signed cooperation agreements on supporting sales of the province’s lychees and other typical products at a trade promotion conference held on Sunday.

The event connected many Vietnamese provinces and cities with places in the US, China, Malaysia, Belgium, France, Czech Republic, Singapore, Japan and the Republic of Korea in a hybrid format.

The Hai Duong Trade and Tourism Promotion Week also opened.

Hai Duong Province officially opened its harvest season with lychee shipments to foreign markets.

Speaking at the event, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Do Thang Hai said that his ministry will continue to coordinate with and support the province to promote its lychee brand and exportation of lychees and other typical products to domestic and foreign markets. He also suggested that Hai Duong actively apply digital technology and e-commerce in trade promotion activities.

In order to increase the value of agricultural products, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Hoang Hiep said that Hai Duong needs to strengthen the preservation and processing stages with a focus on the development of specialities in each locality.

Secretary of the Hai Duong Province's Party's Committee Pham Xuan Thang stated that the locality's agriculture is developing in the direction of large-scale, concentrated commodity production, with high, smart and organic technologies applied.

Annually, Hai Duong produces about 750,000 tonnes of rice, 700,000 tonnes of vegetables, 300,000 tonnes of fruit and about 200,000 tonnes of cattle, poultry and aquatic products.

Currently, Thanh Ha lychees are present in most provinces and cities in the country and are exported to major markets such as China, Japan, the US, France, Australia, Singapore and Thailand. Last year, Hai Duong lychee overcame the COVID-19 storm with a total production value of VND1.4 trillion (US$60.3 million), VND234 billion higher than that of 2020. — VNS
