Vietnamese State President Nguyen Xuan Phuc on Tuesday attended the inauguration ceremony of the Hanh Phuc rice mill, located in the Mekong Delta province of An Giang.

The mill is considered the biggest of its kind in Asia.

Tan Long Group, the owner of the plant, held the ceremony on Tuesday afternoon.

The Hanh Phuc rice factory was built on an area of 161,000 square meters in Tri Ton District, An Giang.

Its prime location will contribute significantly to reducing the time and cost of transporting fresh rice from the field to the factory and ensuring ideal conditions of the crop, according to Truong Sy Ba, chairman of Tan Long Group.

All of the factory’s technological solutions were imported from Europe, including a system of rice drying and storage developed by SKIOLD Group in Denmark, a rice processing system from Bühler in Switzerland, and many other types of accompanying equipment imported and synchronized with EU standards from Italy, Germany, and Poland.

Its daily capacity reaches 1,000 metric tons of processed rice.

In his remarks at Tuesday’s ceremony, State President Phuc said the mill plays an important role as it helps to create new value added for the domestic rice sector.

He said An Giang should continue to form large-scale paddy fields, promote production chains, and encourage startups in agriculture to raise productivity, production value, and income for farmers.
