The People's Committee of Yen Bai province and the Vietnam Macadamia Association sign a memorandum of understanding on cooperation in the development of macadamia in Yen Bai province in the 2021-2025 period.

During a recent working session with the Yen Bai provincial People's Committee, the Vietnam Macadamia Association expressed its wish to develop the tree in the locality, raising the locals' incomes, and pledged to supply saplings and consume all products when harvested.

Macadamia trees been grown in many localities such as Lai Chau, Son La and the Central Highlands provinces with encouraging results. The trees are planted in tea and coffee plantations for high efficiency.

Local people have grown macadamia trees since 2011. The province has 56.66 hectares of macadamia, including 51.66 hectares in concentrated areas and 5 hectares in tea plantations. The trees are newly planted between one and four years, so the yield is not high.

The Yen Bai People’s Committee has tasked the Provincial Forest Protection Department to carry out a scientific project on "Trial of growing macadamia in the western districts of Yen Bai province" to assess the growth and development of some macadamia varieties with two methods: cultivating only Macadamia and combining with other trees.

At the working session with the Vietnam Macadamia Association, Standing Vice Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee Nguyen The Phuoc agreed with the view on growing macadamia trees in the province and suggested that the association continue to provide technical support for planting and caring for both experimental planting models and existing models in Tran Yen, Luc Yen, Van Chan and Van Yen districts.
