Along with encouraging businesses to invest in fruit processing, Tuyen Quang is working with enterprises to develop fruit farming areas, promote the formation of production chains, and support cooperatives in production and building sustainable connectivity between farmers and businesses.
The provincial administration has also purified forms of farming encouragement to intensify the transfer of advanced farming techniques and scientific-technological advances to farmers to enhance the quality of products while paying greater attention to building trademarks for local fruits.
It is striving to expand fruit farming areas to 19,000 hectares in 2025 with a total output of over 200,000 tonnes per year, including 180,000 tonnes of high-value products.
In 2030, the province expects over 220,000 tonnes of fruits per year, including more than 210,000 tonnes of specialty and high-value products.
Specifically, in 2030, Tuyen Quang aims to develop 7,500 hectares of orange with the production of over 100,000 tonnes per year, with 3,050 hectares receiving farming region codes, mostly in Ham Yen, Chiem Hoa, and Yen Son districts.
