Bac Giang attracts investment in agriculture

(BGO) – With a large area of commodity production, the northern province of Bac Giang still encounters difficulties to lure the enterprises with great potential investing in the province. The local authority has applied several preferential mechanism and policy to the businesses which implements projects in agriculture sector.

The province has some 200 agriculture businesses. Most of them have small scale and limited capability. These businesses mostly operate in the field of seed and fertiliser supply. Less than 5 percent of them process the farm produce. Thus, huge volume of agriculture products is consumed and exported under preliminary processed form, leading to low value.

Though Yen The district has a total chicken flock of more than 3 million heads, there is no big enterprise investing in local poultry slaughtering system in dozens of years. The quantity of slaughtered chicken and chicken paste only hit dozens of tonnes per year.

Luc Ngan district is home to a fruit cultivation area of over 6,000 hectares with total productivity of 50,000 tonnes per crop. However, only fresh orange and pomelo are sold sometimes at very low price making severe loss to the farmers. The quantity of lychee for processing is not much. Only dozens of tonnes out of nearly 100,000 tonnes of lychee per crop are used to make juice or canned frozen lychee at some local enterprises.

The DARD’s Director Duong Thanh Tung explained that agriculture production has high potential of risk. Many plants bear fruits in certain seasons while it costs a lot of money to invest in a farm produce processing line which only operates few months per year.

The agricultural and rural infrastructures have been upgraded but still yet to meet the demand for developing the concentrated commodity agriculture. Most of the investment was spent on irrigation infrastructure thus the enterprises are not interested in the farming sector.

Representative of G.O.C Export Food Processing Joint Stock Company (G.O.C)(Lang Giang district), a top leading company in farm produce processing shared that it is very hard to build up the material area in Bac Giang province because the farmers now do not like the farm work as previously. G.O.C expected the provincial competent sectors and localities to issue preferential policies to form the concentrated production area with large scale so that it can hire the local land for investment.

Field accumulation and expense support

The agriculture is developed synchronously with industry, commerce and service so as to support each other to create various products and high values. Also, the People’s Council issued special policies to encourage the business to invest in agriculture and rural area.

The province continues well executing the Government’s Decree No.57/2018/ND-CP dated on April 17, 2018 about the policy and mechanism to encourage the enterprises to invest in agriculture and rural area such as preferential tarif, hiring the land and water surface of household and individual...
