Viet Nam pitches in with rice expertise for Cuba
Construction Minister Nguyen Hong Quan was adamant that Cuba’s national food security would be secured after touring of several rice cooperatives in eastern Cuba between Sept. 24-25.
The Guillermon Moncada cooperative in Holguin province is now the proud owner of an average yearly yield of 6 tonnes of rice a ha thanks to techniques and experience provided by Vietnamese experts.
The cooperative has benefited from a project, called Family-Sized Rice Farming, that was deployed in 2002 with Viet Nam’s assistance.
Viet Nam has also sent experts to help Cuban families organise themselves into rice-farming cooperatives using Vietnamese farming techniques, from rice seedings to the drying of rice. (VNA)
