Hanoi festival introducing agricultural products opens

Festival aimed at boosting trade links between the capital and other localities.

The Hanoi Agricultural Product Festival 2023 opened in Hoai Duc district on December 27.

The five-day festival will attract over 100 organizations and individuals from Hanoi and other localities introducing agricultural products and “One commune, One product” (OCOP) products at 145 booths.

It is aimed at promoting trade exchanges between Hanoi and elsewhere and boosting exports of agricultural products, according to Director of the Hanoi Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Xuan Dai.

Opportunities will also be available to connect managers, scientists, businesses, farmers, and consumers.

Hanoi’s agricultural sector has continually developed and diversified its products in recent years and improved product quality, contributing to the capital’s socio-economic development, Mr. Dai said.

In particular, it has sped up agricultural restructuring, expanded markets, and promoted green and smart agriculture in connection with the development of services and rural tourism.

The capital has also paid attention to applying high technology in agricultural development and promoting organic agriculture and the circular economy.
