Thanh Ha litchi festival opens

The first-ever Thanh Ha litchi festival opens in Hai Duong on Sunday to promote consumption of the local specialty fruit and tourism potential.

Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam told the opening ceremony: We are happy that Thanh Ha litchi has been available in many countries, even in the most demanding markets. Cultivation experience and advanced technology in growing and processing have helped produce litchi at international standard. It's important to market products to gain higher added values.

Mr. Dam suggested Hai Duong province to develop agriculture in par with culture and tourism.

Swedish Ambassador Pereric Hogberg attended the litchi festival and worked with local authority. He expressed his interest in shipping Vietnam's litchi to Sweden.
