"It also aims to facilitate trade links and product sales, increase the value of agricultural production, and contribute to the socio-economic development of the city and other provinces and cities," he said.
According to Do Minh Tuan, Vice Chairman of the Soc Son District People's Committee, specialized production areas have been established in the district, focusing on crops such as jasmine flowers, yellow sticky rice, yellow flower tea, and raspberry, as well as dozens of high-tech livestock farms that meet VietGap standards.
He added that Soc Son District has more than 100 OCOP three- and four-star commodities. After being recognized as OCOP products, businesses, cooperatives, and production units have formed linkages in production, processing, and consumption.
The Soc Son District People's Committee also held celebrations such as the Giong Temple Festival and presentations and introductions of the district's overall development plans.
Visitors can participate in many activities, such as traditional cooking competitions, salt pickling of vegetables, folk figurine molding, embroidery, and rice painting.
