BTO-  Department of Industry &Trade of Binh Thuan province lately issued a document to suggest its counterparts of other provinces/cities to give support in propaganda and creating network on dragon fruit consumption in the face of Covid-19 pandemic’s impact.

The document also provides information on dragon fruit production facilities in Binh Thuan to facilitate trade promotion.  Accordingly, localities are expected to boost propaganda on dragon fruit and connect consumption networks through distribution channels, supermarkets, trade centers, etc. Functional units will directly contact dragon fruit producers in Binh Thuan and discuss plans for dragon fruit purchase and transport in accordance with each unit’s conditions and demand.
