Phu Yen on March 27 announced a master plan of its high technology agriculture zone to 2030 to serve the production of the south central coastal province as well as other regional localities.
The zone will focus on cultivation, breeding, forestry, aquaculture, farm produce processing and preserving, and bio-product and animal feed production.
The zone will act as a centre for research, application, experiment, performance and transfer of technology for production and processing of agricultural products as well as personnel training for the agricultural sector.
In the first stage, the zone will cover 460 hectares in Hoa Quang Bac commune in Phu Hoa district, including 306.6 hectares of production area.
By 2020, the zone will receive an investment of over VND520 billion to build its infrastructure system, including irrigation, water pipeline, road and light systems, a water supply station, and a waste treatment plant.
So far, the zone has drawn seven projects, including four operating ones, including a Taiwanese-invested high technology agriculture project.
