Japanese government non-refundable aid worth more than US$158,200 will be poured into the second phase of a project developing organic agriculture in the southern province of Ben Tre as a result of a contract signed on January 31.

Many farmers in Ben Tre have shifed to organic agricultural production

The second phase of the project will be carried out in four communes of Binh Dai and Ba Tri districts by the Japanese-funded Seed to Table organization.

The organization will provide farmers with knowledge and equipment for organic agricultural production and processing.

The Japanese Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City will help build a processing plant in the locality.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Japanese Consul General Kawaue Junichi pledged to provide maximum support for the project.

Earlier, Seed to Table received aid worth nearly US$90,000 to implement the first phase of the project.
