YBO - 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.
Dai Minh commune of Yen Binh district is home to more than 270ha of orchards, raking in about 50 billion VND (2.16 million USD) per year.
In the context of the complex and unpredictable developments in international relations, Yen Bai province has consolidated and expanded its relations with many international organisations and representative offices at home and abroad, such as the Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Singapore Manufacturing Federation and the British Business Group.
Yen Bai province earned more than 130.6 million USD from exports between January and October, equivalent to 62.2 percent of the annual target.
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.
