Denmark helps Dak Lak develop agriculture

The Danish government has provided 84.8 billion VND (over 4 million USD) for the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak to implement an agricultural and rural development programme in the 2008-2012 period.

At a working session with the provincial leaders on August 12, Deputy Ambassador of Denmark to Vietnam Lis Rosenholm praised Dak Lak province for its effective use of the Danish aid.

To date, the province has allocated over 45 billion VND towards implementing the programme’s objectives, including increasing agricultural economic growth, developing agricultural and rural infrastructure, improving living conditions for residents, strengthening the protection and use of natural resources, maintaining a sustainable environment and raising management capacity.

Between now and 2012, Dak Lak pledges to use the remaining capital effectively, to ensure that agriculture will account for 46 percent of the province’s economy, and 76 percent of rural residents will gain access to safe water.
