VTV.vn - The Mekong Delta province of Soc Trang should expand the cultivation of high-yield rice varieties and fruit trees instead of rice.

This advice was given by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc at a working session with provincial officials on April 23rd.

During the meeting, he elaborated that each hectare of green-skin grapefruit and King orange in Soc Trang reportedly generates an economic value 10 times higher than one hectare of rice.

The large scale farming of cattle, which is a traditional practice of local residents, is also one of the province's advantages, as the global demand for beef is big. He asked the province to strive to become a shrimp production hub in the Mekong Delta while paying more attention to industrial development to increase jobs. He also highlighted the need to develop renewable energy, another advantage of Soc Trang.
