Youth unionists support for sale of agricultural products

The Youth Union, the Young Entrepreneurs Association of Khanh Hoa Province and youth unions in the province are implementing programs to support farmers to sell agricultural products to partly help them overcome difficulties caused by the epidemic.
 
Recently, Cam Lam District Youth Union organized to receive and sell purple sugarcane for growers in Khanh Son District. Tran Nhat Luan, Secretary of Cam Lam District Youth Union, said that following the launch of the Provincial Youth Union, the unit has widely deployed this activity to communes and townships. After collecting demand, the district youth union ordered through the channel of the Provincial Youth Union and assigned union members and volunteers to distribute to localities. In two days September 27 and 28, youth unionists sold 600 bundles of sugarcane (12 trees each bundle). The unit is also surveying to support the selling of aquatic products such as groupers and snails to help farmers overcome difficulties.
 
The Youth Union of Dien Khanh District has just sold out 350 bundles of sugarcane to help Khanh Son farmers. Luong Le Thanh Van - Acting Secretary of the district Youth Union said that according to the original plan, the district union planned to support to sell 120 bundles of sugarcane. However, through communication and implementation, many people and units have participated in this activity, making it better.

According to Bui Hoai Nam - Secretary of the Provincial Youth Union, under the direction of the Provincial People's Committee, the Provincial Youth Union cooperated with the Provincial Young Entrepreneurs Association to launch the program to support farmers to sell agricultural products to overcome the pandemic. From September 23 to 30, youth unions at all levels deployed the first round of support for purple sugarcane of Khanh Son district. Accordingly, Khanh Son District Youth Union was the focal point to collect purple sugarcane from people in need of support, organized transport vehicles and delivered it to the Provincial Youth Union and youth unions of localities to sell. With the unit price of 60,000 VND/bundle of 12 sugarcane trees, the youth unions transported and delivered to consumers at the same price, not higher. Since its launch, the program has received the support of people, organizations and units. In many localities, the consumption output exceeded the plan. By September 29, youth unions at all levels have sold out more than 2,800 bundles of purple sugarcane, equivalent to about 112 tons of sugarcane.
 
In the time to come, the Provincial Youth Union will survey other localities where there is a real demand for agricultural products to create a supply-demand connection, thereby having a stable output for agricultural products, partly reducing their worry about the consumer market. The Provincial Youth Union will also survey the needs of other agricultural products to have a suitable support to help farmers.
