Thuan Chau district plans to expand the area of red-flesh dragon fruit to 150-200 hectares during 2021-2025.

Nguyen Xuan Hoang, Vice Chairman of the district People's Committee, said that in order to synchronously implement solutions to ensure production, processing and sale of agricultural products in adaptation to the market affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, the locality has searched for and connected with partners in Vietnam and abroad.

The district has also created favourable conditions for businesses and cooperatives to meet, learn and sign sale contracts with businesses and distributors.

The export of red-flesh dragon fruit to Russia will contribute to improving value, stabilising sale and helping farmers feel secure in production, thus creating momentum to promote socio-economic development of Son La province in general and Thuan Chau district in particular, he added.
