HCMC – Dang Quoc Khanh, minister of Natural Resources and Environment, has emphasized the need to consider deep processing of rare earths to serve the industry and explore the possibility of exporting these minerals.

During the Q&A session on natural resources and the environment at the seventh sitting of the National Assembly, one of the key issues raised by NA deputies was the strategy for studying, exploring, extracting and utilizing mineral resources, including rare earths.
