Accordingly, the province will focus on developing the area of orange, mango, grapefruit, longan and banana.

Mr Tran Trung Hien, Director of the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development said that to realise the program, the province will mobilize over VND620 billion, in order to build the infrastructure and facilities for production and consumption of products. In addition, the province will realise policies to encourage economic sectors to invest in the production of high quality seedlings, and the construction of foundations for trading, processing and exporting the fruits.

It now has over 6,800 hectares of fruits, including over 1,150 hectares of mango, 1,830 hectares of orange, 880 hectares of grapefruit, nearly 1,650 hectares of longan and 1,630 hectares of banana.

As there is a lack of investment in facilities and technologies, the productivity and quality of products are not stable, especially with the influence of climate change, flooding and salt intrusion.

Over the past five years, fruits have brought an average income of VND100-120 million per hectare per year./.
