The future is looking a little brighter for small farmers in the Khan Hoa province. With support from the Danish Embassy, the small scale vegetable farmers have been able to advance their production methods and access the Japanese and European market, ultimately leading to an improvement of revenue and livelihood for the many households dependent on agriculture.

Ambassador John Nielsen recently visited some of the companies and experienced the positive changes brought about by the Danish support. β€œIt’s always satisfying to see when a program truly makes a real difference to people’s everyday lives. By cultivating new varieties of Taro and eggplant, local farmers are now able to compete in very competitive export markets, making a better and more stable income for their families,” says John Nielsen.
