(HBO) – Boasting huge potential to develop supporting industries, agricultural processing, clean agriculture as well as various kinds of tourism products, Hoa Binh province is seeking ways to provide its excellent products and services for the capital city of Hanoi and markets in the northern key economic region.

One of the locality’s remarkable activities in boosting regional economic connectivity is to effectively carry out cooperation deals signed with neighbouring localities, particularly Hanoi, across the fields of industry, agriculture, trade, transport and natural resources.

The provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development has signed a myriad of Memoranda of Understanding on agricultural production and consumption, as well as quality control with other localities and partners, including an operation regulation with Hanoi’s Trade and Tourism Promotion Centre and Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, an MoU on agricultural product sales with several business groups and organisations, and an agreement on animal quarantine and slaughtering control, as well as safe vegetable production and consumption with Hanoi Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

The province also paid due heed to expanding markets for local products. The provincial Department of Industry and Trade signed a comprehensive cooperation programme with the Departments of Industry and Trade of Hanoi and Ha Nam province. Since 2017, it has arranged a dozen trips for local firms to attend fairs and exhibitions in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and several provinces like Thua Thien – Hue, Hung Yen, Phu Yen, Quang Ninh, Ha Nam and Tien Giang.

Besides, competent departments and agencies have exchanged information and experience on the management and building of production models in value chain with other localities. Local businesses have receive the best conditions to popularize their products.

Thanks to concerted efforts to build brands and enhance trade promotion, local products have hit the shelves of big supermarkets like Big C Thang Long, Vinmart, Lotte, Hapro Mart, Co.opmart Hanoi and Saigon Co.op, among others.

Along with signing a tourism development programme during 2017-2020 with Son La, Dien Bien and Lao Cai provinces, Hoa Binh is working with Lai Chau, Dien Bien and Son La provinces to develop a waterway tourism route along the Da River, attracting visitors from Hanoi to visit tourism sites in Hoa Binh, Son La, and Lai Chau reservoirs.

Currently, it is preparing for the signing of a similar cooperation programme with Ho Chi Minh City, and working towards tourism cooperation with the Republic of Korea, Mongolia and Laos./.
