Mekong Sub Region to strengthen agricultural value chain

by VTV414 December 2015 Last updated at 07:28 AM

VTV.vn - The Mekong Sub Region’s agricultural sector employs up to 70% of the local population but contributes around 30% of GDP. The main reason is the lack of links between farmers and markets.

A conference to discuss the issue agreed three solutions, including prioritising infrastructure development, increasing agricultural supply chains and empowering small manufacturers. The Mekong Sub Region including Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Myanmar are the fast growing markets. Improvements in the agriculture sector will prove particularly important especially in a context where the ASEAN Economic Community becomes a reality in the new year.
