NDO – Thanks to favorable weather conditions and effective advertisement, several northern localities enjoyed successful 2018 longan and lychee seasons.

According to a report by the Hung Yen Provincial People’s Committee, the locality churned out 48,300 tonnes of longan, the highest volume ever, representing a year-on-year surge of 30%.

Especially, local farmers reached large contracts with big supermarkets to provide 1,743 tonnes of longan. For the first time, longan was served for passengers flying with national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines.

The total amount of consumed longan rose to 47,970 tonnes, equivalent to 99.31% of the total harvested output. The province earned VND 1.05 trillion, up nearly VND 300 billion against last year.

In Bac Giang province, 215,800 tonnes of lychee were harvested with a total value of VND 5.7 trillion, up VND 450 billion against last year.

Deputy PM Vuong Dinh Hue praised the two provinces for proper trade promotion in both domestic and foreign markets.

In the coming seasons, the provinces will focus on building trademarks, labels, and stamps of origin, conducting trade promotion, and expanding markets, especially domestically.
