YBO - The provincial People’s Committee, the Party organisation of the bloc of provincial agencies and businesses, and the business association in Yen Bai on August 28 co-hosted a monthly meeting among local businesses called “Business Café” to discuss impacts of the Vietnam-European Union Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) on the Vietnamese economy.
Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Chien Thang delivers a remark at the meeting.
The effective implementation of an orchard development project has so far this year raised the total area under fruit trees in Yen Bai to 9,600 ha, a rise of 717 ha compared to the same period last year.
Over the recent years, localities in Yen Bai province have always focused on developing winter crops on rice farming areas and considered this the main production crop of the year, creating more jobs and increasing income for local farmers.
The Yen Bai Department of Industry and Trade has organised an online trade exchange conference connecting local businesses with the Vietnamese Trade offices abroad and foreign partners.
Yen Bai province boasts a vast area of fruit orchards totaling more than 9,000 hectares as of August 2020, up 2,500 hectares as compared to 2015.
