NDO – Working Group 970 of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) continues to promote the connection, consumption and circulation of agricultural products for southern provinces and cities that are in isolation.


By July 30, there were 537 focal points providing agricultural products and food registered with Working Group 970, including:

123 focal points for vegetables; 127 focal points for fruit; 236 focal points for seafood; 27 focal points for food; and 22 focal points for other items. The representative of the supplier said that the range of goods is very diverse.

On July 30, the Working Group 970 connected with two big companies to buy summer-autumn rice for the provinces of An Giang, Dong Thap and Soc Trang.

In parallel with the promotion of summer-autumn rice harvest, Working Group 970 worked with several large rice-seed-producing enterprises to make statistics and mobilise these enterprises to open drying kilns to meet the shortage of kilns to dry harvested rice.

In addition to rice, Working Group 970 also connected many other commodities such as leafy vegetables, a large amount of giant freshwater shrimp, marine fish, and saltwater shrimp.

The existing problem, which needs to be resolved by Working Group 970 and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, is that the supply of aquatic products far exceeds the demand. Specifically, there is an excess of pangasius and red tilapia.

In terms of fruit trees, longan produced in large, concentrated areas of 300-500 hectares have begun to be sold because there are businesses to buy. Non-centralized label production areas also face difficulties. Regarding livestock products, some items such as white feathered chicken, quail, and pigeons have shown signs of excess.

Previously, on July 28, Working Group 970 of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development launched a registration information page to connect the supply and demand of agricultural products and goods in the southern provinces. As of noon on July 31, the website https://htx.cooplink.com.vn/ had received about 600 registrations.
