YBO - Taking advantage of the fertile alluvial soil along the Red River, people in Yen Bai province grow canna indica as a raw material for making vermicelli. With their diligence and continuing learning, they have made the trade well-known inside and outside the province.
People in Quy Mong commune, Tran Yen district take advantage of favourable weather to process vermicelli to serve year-end season.
Instead of just making a living from and taking advantage of forests, the Mong ethnic minority people in Yen Bai province now considers forests invaluable assets and know how to create livelihoods and get rid of poverty.
After five years of implementation, the One Commune, One Product (OCOP) programme in Yen Bai province has developed strongly.
YBO – Yen Binh district organised fish release into Thac Ba Lake on February 2, an activity linked with the carp releasing custom practiced on the Land Genie and Kitchen Gods worshipping day (the 23rd day of the last lunar month) of the Vietnamese people.
In 2023, the goods export turnover of Tran Yen reached an estimated 84.6 million USD, equivalent to 130.8% of the set plan, and up 35.8% compared to the previous year.
