According to the MoU, beyond making efforts to support each other in agriculture, tourism and culture, two sides will share experience in ginseng cultivation and processing techniques.
Ho Quang Buu, Chairman of the Nam Tra My district People’s Committee, highlighted that collaborating with Hamyang and learning from its expertise in growing and processing pharmaceutical materials and particularly mountainous ginseng will open opportunities for Ngoc Linh ginseng to roll into foreign markets.
Between now and 2020, Quang Nam province plans to grow nearly a million ginseng plants across 100 hectares in Nam Tra My district. As part of long-term plans, the province has zoned off a 19,000 hectare plantation within seven communes in the district.
Hamyang district, a clean town with 15 mountains exceeding 1,000 metres in height and rich soil, has tapped its potential to develop mountainous ginseng. The locality has organised numerous activities during the annual Wild Ginseng Festival to popularise the local products to international friends./.
