In the first 6 months of 2019, the export turnover in Long An province is estimated at USD 2.92 billion, increasing to 15 percent over the same period in 2018 (increase to 20 percent). Besides, import turnover reached USD 2.2 billion, up 13.2 percent over the same period in 2018 (increase to 4 percent).

Dragon fruit is the most exported product of Long An province

At present, there are more than 800 enterprises participating in export and import in the whole province. These enterprises have exported to more than 120 countries and territories around the world. 

Export products include rice, cashew nuts, aquacuture products, dragon fruit, seedless lemon, leather shoes, textile products, mechanical products, electric wires - electric cables, agricultural machinery and equipment, plastic products, and so on.

Imported products mainly include textile and garment materials, chemicals, plastics, animal feed materials, machinery and equipment.

According to the general assessment, despite the growth, export turnover is slower than the same period in 2018. One of the reasons is the fluctuation of the world market and domestic enterprises, especially the inability to predict all risks in the trade of agricultural products exporters.

In addition, many countries are increasing technical barriers, quotas and requirements for quality and origin of goods. Therefore, the increase in export of the province is not as effective as expected. In addition, the province's export volume in light industry depends heavily on foreign invested enterprises (FDI). At present, the export turnover of the province still depends on FDI enterprises, accounting for about 70 percent.

In order to promote the export of goods, especially agricultural products, the province focuses on propagating the market regulations; provide list and process of using pesticides in agricultural production, encourage the production of VietGAP and GlobalGAP standards; and ensure food safety to enhance the competitiveness of Vietnamese agricultural products.

On the other hand, the province also focus on investment and trade promotion; seeking and expanding new markets besides traditional markets; contacting and mobilizing investment, especially investment promotion agencies and economic representatives of Vietnam in foreign countries./.

Deputy Director of Department of Agriculture and Rural Development - Dinh Thi Phuong Khanh asks farmers to apply new technologies to create quality products

After 4 years of implementation, the project has achieved some positive results. The province has established many pilot models of beef cattle farming with high technology applications. The models play an important role in the application of technologies in practice and have a great spread to farmers.

The role of cooperative groups and cooperatives has been increasingly asserted. Farmers have actively cooperated in farming, gradually change their old habits and boldly applied advanced techniques to production. Therefore, the production efficiency and income of members have been improved.

The project "Building high-tech concentrated beef growing area" has achieved some positive results

The province has established 10 pilot models; initially replicated in Duc Hoa and Duc Hue districts; supported to provide 181 cows and 75 machines.

The province has granted VietGAHP certificates to 4 units (2 cooperatives, 1 cooperative group, 1 farm) and organized technical training courses for farmers; cooperated with Ho Chi Minh City University of Agriculture and Forestry to consult and support members in reorganizing production.

However, the project still has had some obstacles in the implementation process such as the difficulties in the capital, the delay in disbursing capital for the model, the limitations in technical application, the weakness of cooperative managers, etc. In addition, farmers have been not interested in participating in the models; product underwriting cannot be implemented.

In addition, she asked farmers to actively change husbandry practices and apply new technologies to create quality products that meet the increasing market standards.

On this occasion, the cooperative groups, cooperatives, and farms in Duc Hoa and Duc Hue districts were also received VietGAHP certificates./.​

Getting overseas students back home Getting overseas students back home
The brain drain and lack of practical education were among the major problems facing the country, students and leading members of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union told HCM City education officials at a conference yesterday.

Students from 130 high schools in the city attended the meeting organised by the municipal Department of Education and Training to discuss improvements to training quality and school programmes.

 

 

Their main concern was the brain drain. Pham Thi Yen Nhi, an 11th grader at the elite Le Hong Phong High School, said many students had gone abroad to study in recent years but did not come back to work in Viet Nam.

 

 

Not many students had the desire to help build their homeland, she said, adding the Government should work out policies to attract them home.

Another concern the students raised was their school programme’s focus on theory rather than practice.

 

 

Nguyen Bich Quynh, an 11th grader at another elite institution, Tran Dai Nghia High School, asked the officials why despite completing such long and arduous courses, many people failed to get good jobs after graduation. Even if they did, employers have to retrain them, she said.

 

 

Tran Tien Thinh of Le Thanh Ton High School in District 7 expressed the same opinion, saying education must be more practically-oriented.

 

 

Others expressed worries about the bad behaviour and use of obscene language by high school students, saying courses to teach them good behaviour were required from an early age.

 

 

Nguyen Thi Ngoc Bich of Long Truong High School in District 9 said there should be more sex education at the high-school level.

 

 

The changes the city and country are going through, students’ aspirations and the role of young people in the city’s industrialisation and modernisation were also discussed.

 

 

Huynh Cong Minh, director of the Department of Education and Training, said the conference provided a good opportunity to listen to students and promised more regular interaction in future.
