However, since decades, the local salt industry has been faced difficulties due to low consume and price making local people in Ho Do Commune no longer be interested in this profession.

It’s very difficult to consume salt nowadays, Mr Le Doan Son, a 62-year-old salt maker in Ho Do Commune has to put salt into the packaging with the hope of being easy for sale.

Many salt-makers in the region have changed other jobs. A part of salt-makers come to cities and provinces as Ho Chi Minh City, Binh Duong, Da Nang, Ca Mau, Kon Tum, Dak Lak, Yen Bai, Son La, etc to find new jobs.
