Prices of agro and aqua products soar in Mekong Delta

Ca Mau, Bac Lieu and Soc Trang provinces have continued to see a shortage of tiger shrimps, with prices continuing to rise. These provinces have faced shrimp shortage because of widespread epidemic diseases in shrimps in the region. One kilogram of shrimps loading about 20 pieces costs VND260,000-265,000 and one kilogram loading 30 pieces of shrimps costs VND190,000-200,000. In Dong Thap and Tien Giang provinces, traders are boosting the purchase of rice with prices of VND8,200-8,250 per kilogram of five-percent-broken rice and VND8,100-8,150 per kilogram of 15-percent-broken rice.

Rice price to be kept stable

Truong Thanh Phong, general director of Vinafood 2, said the company would build one more warehouse to add to the one in Binh Chanh District which has a capacity of 4,000-5,000 tonnes. It also has a warehouse each in Long An and Tien Giang Provinces that will supply rice to the City in an emergency.

Tien Giang province opens socio-economic trade fair

The event attracted 200 showcases by 17 businesses from My Tho city and 70 other from Tien Giang and neighbouring provinces. Most of them displayed agricultural and industrial products and services under the campaign “Vietnamese people use Vietnamese goods”.

South seeks more US investors

The forum is one of many activities being held to mark 15 years of Viet Nam-US normalisation of relations and 10 years of the Viet Nam-US Bilateral Trade Agreement. The region consists of HCM City and Dong Nai, Binh Duong, Ba Ria-Vung Tau, Tay Ninh, Binh Phuoc, Tay Ninh, Long An and Tien Giang provinces. It plays an important role in the country's economy since it annually contributes 60 per cent to the State budget, 70 per cent export turnover and tops the list of foreign direct investment.

New policies needed to spur growth

Dong Thap Province’s rice output increased from 260,000 tonnes in 1975 to 1 million tonnes in 1988 and to 2.8 million this year. The Plain of Reeds region has a total area of 696,000ha and spans Dong Thap, Tien Giang and Long An provinces in the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta. In 1980, the Government decided to develop the region, whose soil was heavily polluted with alum at that time, into a region that could have high-growth in the agriculture, industry, services and tourism sectors.
