This information was announced at the meeting between Deputy Director of the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Industry and Trade Nguyen Huynh Trang with departments and agencies of Dak Lak province.

The meeting was held to look for solutions to improve the efficiency of goods supply and demand connection between potential enterprises, cooperatives, farmers and exporters with the city’s distribution systems.

Additionally, the meeting aims to help them find out local specialty products to participate in the city’s promotion programs.

Speaking at the meeting, the provincial departments and agencies said that the Central Highlands province had nearly 5,400 square kilometers of agricultural land. 

Beside coffee products, the province also focused on various products such as rubber, pepper, cocoa, cashew, avocado, durian, mango and litchi, grapefruit, oranges, tangerines and honey. 

However, finding the consuming destinations for agricultural products of the province is still difficult because of many reasons.

Therefore, the locality needs to focus on choosing products with stable quality, large production scale. Besides, Ho Chi Minh City will give priorities to products being processed in the province to reduce the amount of waste in Ho Chi Minh City.
