Farmers, officials discuss ways to expand markets

VIENTIANE (Vientiane Times/ANN) – Farmers from Vientiane and other central areas on Monday met with officials from the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, Ministry of Industry and Commerce and related sectors to discuss the challenges they face.

“We want producers and buyers to discuss their needs. If they don’t communicate, farmers grow what they think is needed but very often this exceeds demand or is not enough,” an official said, speaking at the meeting at the Haddokkeo Horticulture Research Centre in Hadxaifong district.
