The province will implement programmes to expand the distribution of agricultural and seafood products. The programmes will combine the chain of safe fruits, vegetable, and flowers in Tuy Hoa city, red and organic rice in Tuy An district, as well as black pig, local purebred yellow cow in Song Hinh and Dong Xuan districts.
Besides, the province will focus on developing the supply chain of safe poultry meat and eggs located in Dong Hoa town, Phu Hoa district.
Phu Yen is also building the supply chain of tuna and lobster to ensure food safety in Tuy Hoa city, Song Cau, and Dong Hoa town, the safe beef supply chain in Son Hoa district.
The other ones are supply chain of fresh seafood, cockles, processed seafood, safe fish sauce in Dong Hoa town, Song Cau town, Tuy Hoa city, and Tuy An district and salt supply chain for food safety in Tuyet Diem Salt Cooperative, Song Cau town.
Phu Yen People's Committee has requested departments and agencies to support households on production activity, tourism development, and other sectors like science and technology and agriculture. The province has asked authorities to increase investment and trade promotion programmes, while simultaneously studying new policies for the OCOP programme.
Regarding the mobilisation of resources for implementation, the province has determined that the largest resources for the OCOP Programme are derived from the community (including capital, land, labour, materials, technology). In addition, the province will mobilise support from economic organisations.
In May 2019, the province approved the OCOP planning, which is an economic development programme in rural areas to promote internal resources and increasing product value.
Notably, the province will implement this planning in the entire rural region and some urban areas. Along with agri- and ecotourism, the planning also includes a project to upgrade and expand the value chain of the province’s key products. In the food sector, it will focus on developing both fresh and processed agricultural products and herbal remedies. In addition, the province will develop fabric and garments made from cotton, as well as souvenirs, and interior and exterior furniture.
