Last year, the total value of agro-forestry and aquatic production in Hai Duong surpassed 22.5 trillion VND (937 million USD), up 4.08% annually. The province is known for its strength in winter crops, with the production value of 223.5 million VND per ha, more than 2.2 times higher than that of northern provinces. Looking forward to 2024, the province aims to achieve a 2.5% growth rate in the agriculture sector.

Visiting an area for production of rice seedlings in trays and a mechanically sown rice field in Hung Long commune, Ninh Giang district, PM Chinh pesonally operated a rice planting machine there.

He wished that Hai Duong would continue stepping up mechanisation across all agricultural production stages, new rural development and national target programmes, toward transforming the province into a hub of ecological and modern rural areas, with a cultured farming community.

Later in the afternoon, PM Chinh visited an export-oriented carrot farming area, a carrot processing and packaging facility and cut the ribbon to celebrate the first export shipment of carrots in the New Year in Duc Chinh commune, Cam Giang district.

He suggested the province develop key crops with high economic value that meet VietGAP standards while also reducing carbon emissions and improving export efficiency on the same land areas.

Alongside this, Hai Duong should also build brands, promote trade, proactively connect businesses together and assist them in forming production, processing and consumption linkages, he said.
