Speaking at the Workshop, Mr. Nguyen Van Khanh, Vice Chairman of the provincial People's Committee, affirmed that: Yen Bai province has many potential strengths to develop agriculture, forestry and fisheries. Every year, the province spends over VND 50 billion to implement projects in the field of agriculture and forestry production. However, the production of people is still small, fragmented, and the quality of goods is not high. Therefore, in order to improve the added value and income for the people, there should be a link between scientists, farmers and enterprises in the issue of product underwriting.
He hoped that after this Workshop, Yen Binh district would synthesize and apply good practices, propose solutions to the development of Thac Ba fisheries products in the direction of increasing added value to increase income for people, but having to stabilize the ecological environment.
At the workshop, the delegates exchanged to clarify the current situation of fisheries development in Thac Ba lake; the application of scientific and technical advances in aquaculture; farming area planning. At the same time, many opinions from managers and scientists have been heard, thereby clarifying scientific and practical arguments on the development of Thac Ba aquatic key product series in a stable direction, enhance added value and protect the ecological environment.
The workshop on developing the value chain of the key product "Thac Ba Lake Fisheries" will open opportunities for exchange and cooperation in investment and development of hi-tech application production, looking for cooperation and upgrading opportunities for brand range of Thac Ba lakes. From there, enhance the value of products and support the creation of sustainable links in production - processing - consumption activities.
