HCMC – A hi-tech agricultural park covering over 100 hectares has got off the ground in Cu M’gar District in the Central Highlands province of Daklak, with a total investment of more than VND700 billion.
Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony of the project held on June 10, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Phung Duc Tien said that once in place, the hi-tech agricultural park will contribute to developing the agriculture sector sustainably, increasing the value of farm produce and boosting socio-economic growth in Daklak Province and the Central Highlands region.
The deputy minister also highly valued the province and Xuan Thien Group, the investor of the project, for their effort and determination to develop the hi-tech-based agricultural park, the local media reported.
The project will be completed in the fourth quarter of 2023 and will start operation in early 2024, according to Nguyen Huy Hoang, general director of Xuan Thien Group.
The hi-tech agricultural park is expected to produce high-quality and disease-free seeds, build a farm produce consuming, storing and processing center and train farmers to apply high tech to farming.
The investor aims to develop the hi-tech agricultural park into the region’s high-quality seedling hub in the near future, with an annual output of pepper, fruits and vegetables at 100 tons, 200 tons and 1,600 tons, respectively.
