Through this cooperation, farmers and enterprises produce quality goods and increase the value of goods.

At the meeting, representatives of local leaders, enterprises and cooperatives agreed to promote the establishment of the Association of REE. Currently, the REE do not have any agreements and consensus in the price for buying farmers’ rice in Long An province as well as many other provinces and cities.

In addition, enterprises still compete in buying and selling in both domestic and international markets, therefore the export price of rice has decreased continuously over the past time.

Enterprises will be more convenient, agree on the purchasing and selling price to foreign markets, contributing to increase the value of rice when the Association is established.
