Accordingly, the Provincial People's Committee directed the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development to coordinate with localities in specifically reviewing the scale and situation of production and processing of key agricultural products in the province. Regularly, it is nessecary to capture information about the output and prices of agricultural products from time to time to make plans to support the connection of production, processing and consumption. In the meantime, they are asked to coordinate with the Department of Industry and Trade to monitor and update information on the consumption of agricultural products (especially for dragon fruit), congestion and backlog at the northern border gates to provide timely information to people.

People and businesses are required to actively develop appropriate production and business plans, while following regulations on Covid-19 prevention and control.

The Provincial People's Committee also recommended focusing on the promotion of production, according to VietGAP, GlobalGAP and organic standards.

The Department of Industry and Trade continues to coordinate with the northern border provinces to capture and promptly update information to provide businesses with effective production plans. Moreover, the amount of goods to the border gate should be regulated so that the opening is suitable to the capacity and progress of customs clearance.

As known, over the past time, the situation of exporting agricultural products to the Chinese market has faced many difficulties due to the implementation of the zero Covid-19 policy by the Chinese side, and the northern border gates were continuously closed and stopped customs clearance. Particularly in Binh Thuan, dragon fruit products are difficult to sell, the selling price is low, only 500-2,0VND/kg. According to the Provincial Dragon Fruit Association, an estimated of over 100,000 tons of dragon fruits is need to be consumed by the end of March 2022.
