High economic value of Ben Tre based-coconut tree

SGGP

Coconut is a key plant of the Mekong Delta Province of Ben Tre contributing to the province’s budget.
At the current time, the raw coconut’s price reduces sharply but it is impossible to deny the economic value of the coconut tree from its shells, leaves and so on which could be made into different kinds of products.

At Thom River coconut market in Mo Cay Nam District of Ben Tre Province, the production and business activities along the riverside are as the production line of a factory. There, numerous coconuts have been gathered in the yards for peeling before their shells are put into the crushers to make raw coconut fiber, coco peat and coconut coir fiber rings.
