Long An: Discuss solutions to "rescue" nearly 30,000 tons of dragon fruitsLong An: Discuss solutions to "rescue" nearly 30,000 tons of dragon fruits
On February 5, Vice Chairman of Long An Provincial People's Committee - Pham Van Canh, Director of Department of Industry and Trade - Le Minh Duc chaired a conference with Departments of Industry and Trade of provinces and Ho Chi Minh City, enterprises, warehouses that buy dragon fruits to find solutions to consume dragon fruits due to the impact of acute respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV).

The area of dragon fruits in the whole province is about 11,826 hectares, of which 9,587 hectares are producing fruits with an output of 320,000 tons. Recently, the main market for dragon fruits is China, accounting for 70 - 80 percent; the remaining markets include Thailand, Singapore, Korea, Europe, USA, Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Dubai, Newzealand, India. India, Australia, etc. and domestic consumption. Exports by the unofficial way still account for a relatively high proportion.

Due to the impact of the acute respiratory disease caused by 2019-nCoV, the un-consumed dragon fruit production from the end of January to the end of February 2020 is about 30,000 tons. In particular, the amount of inventory is about 2,000 tons; about 28,000 tons have not been harvested.

According to the Chairman of Long An Dragon Fruit Association - Nguyen Quoc Trinh, the association had a meeting with the warehouse owners to reduce the purchasing price to 10,000 VND per kg to minimize the damage to the warehouses, traders and gardeners. However, due to the amount of dragon fruit is still too large, some warehouses do not purchase.

At the conference, the Department of Industry and Trade of provinces and cities such as Ho Chi Minh and Can Tho cities shared the difficulties of Long An province and supported "rescue" dragon fruits through domestic consumption by retail businesses. However, all inventories cannot be "rescued"; the businesses also require products that meet food safety, VietGap, Global Gap standards. Domestic consumption will be very low. Moreover, jackfruit, durian, rambutan, etc. also have difficulties in trading with China.

Besides, another solution for consumption is the drying of dragon fruit.

Director of Department of Industry and Trade of Long An Province - Le Minh Duc said that, currently, because there is no specific contract, the export of agricultural products to China is risky, especially dragon fruits. He recommended businesses, cooperatives and farmers to have closely consumption contracts. In particular, the sustainable solution is to organize production in the direction of linking and food safety in accordance with VietGAP and GlobalGAP standards to avoid dependence on the main market.

Vice Chairman of Long An Provincial People's Committee - Pham Van Canh assigned Department of Industry and Trade to continue working closely with Long An Dragon Fruit Association to grasp the situation, report to the provincial leaders and the Ministry of Industry and Trade to promptly direct the next solutions; actively connect businesses in the province that perform deep processing; focus on domestic consumption and exporting fresh fruits to markets outside China to reduce losses to farmers./.

American football star asks for Vietnamese citizenshipAmerican football star asks for Vietnamese citizenship
Doan Van Ut, General Director of the Binh Duong Club JS Company, said that his firm is carrying out procedures to get Vietnamese citizenship for strikers Lee Nguyen and Philani.

Binh Duong football club currently has five foreign players: Philani, Obina, Lee Nguyen, Leandro and Osita. However, the club can use up to four foreign players at the upcoming V-League 2011.

With its ambition to win the V-League 2011, Binh Duong wants to use all five foreign players. The club has asked for the Vietnamese citizenship for Philani and assisted Vietnamese American Lee Nguyen to get his Vietnamese citizenship because Lee Nguyen’s family had already submitted necessary documents.

Ut said that perhaps Lee Nguyen would be recognized as a Vietnamese citizen in early 2011 so he can play as a domestic player after the second round of V-League 2011.

If Lee Nguyen becomes a naturalized Vietnamese, he will not be able to play for the Vietnamese national squad because he had played for the American youth team and the American squad.

Lee Nguyen, 25, joined Hoang Anh Gia Lai club in 2009 with a 3-year contract. In the first football season, he scored 12 goals for the team. However, Hoang Anh Gia Lai broke its contract with Lee Nguyen in mid-2010. Nguyen moved to Binh Duong since then.

Long An: Only about 5% of dragon fruits exported to EuropeLong An: Only about 5% of dragon fruits exported to Europe
Currently, due to the dependence on the Chinese market, dragon fruit prices are unstable and greatly affect the application of high technology; farmers are not interested in joining cooperatives. Many farmers petitioned Long An Provincial People's Committee to strengthen trade promotion and find new output markets for dragon fruits.

The area of growing dragon fruit in the province is about 10,595 hectares, the productivity is about 31 tons per hectare and the output is 253,269 tons. Dragon fruit is grown mainly in Chau Thanh district and neighboring districts (Tan Tru, Thu Thua districts and Tan An city, ...). In addition, many other localities in the province also grow dragon fruit.

The whole province has about 154 cooperatives; cooperative groups; enterprise, and so on.

Dragon fruit is mainly exported to China (about 80 percent of production), consumption in the domestic market is 15 percent, export to Europe by official quota is 5 percent.

Implementing Resolution 08-NQ/TU on June 16, 2016 of the Provincial Party Committee, Long An Provincial People's Committee issued the Project on developing high-tech application agriculture associated with the restructuring of the Agriculture sector.

According to the target of the project, by 2020, the area of dragon fruits applying high technology in Chau Thanh district will be 2,000 hectares.

Farmers apply high technology in planting dragon fruit

In recent years, the provincial departments and branches have supported many businesses and cooperatives to promote exports and connect consumption through the Dragon Fruit Association of Long An.

In order to export dragon fruits to the Chinese market, the authorities of Long An province also registered and granted the planting area codes for 54 communes in 4 districts (Chau Thanh, Tan Tru, Thu Thua and Thanh Hoa) and Tan An city; the code of export packing establishment for dragon fruit to more than 80 enterprises, cooperatives, etc.

According to the provincial People's Committee, in order to find the output for agricultural products in general and dragon fruit in particular, enterprises, cooperatives and cooperative groups should actively coordinate with the management agencies. There are few cooperatives and cooperative groups participating in trade promotion because the funding to support trade promotion activities is still limited.

Some businesses and cooperatives have not really paid attention to participating in fairs and conferences to connect supply and demand; not actively signed the contract after joining the connection activity or even delayed providing relevant documents when requested by the partners. 

In the coming time, Long An Provincial People's Committee will continue to coordinate with the Food Safety Management Board of Ho Chi Minh City to strengthen trade promotion to promote dragon fruit products in major provinces and cities such as Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and some neighboring provinces; invite domestic and foreign enterprises to invest in building factories processing raw materials from dragon fruits; support cooperatives, cooperative groups and businesses to participate in trade fairs, especially participating in the Conference on promoting agricultural consumption in Lang Son province; hold a dialogue conference between businesses, cooperatives and cooperative groups in the area of high-tech dragon fruit production; find new markets for dragon fruits, especially EU, Japan, US and Australia markets.
