HANOI， March 21 (Xinhua) -- Vietnam is projected to rake in 4.5-5 billion U.S. dollars from exporting shrimp and record an annual average growth of 9.5-12 percent during the 2017-2020 period， according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) on Tuesday.
A drafted national action plan for shrimp development through 2025 by MARD targets to turn the shrimp sector into a big industry with sustainable development that is adaptable to climate change and friendly to the environment， reported Vietnam's state-run news agency VNA.
Specifically， in the 2021-2025 period， a hi-tech shrimp industry and large-scale eco-shrimp farming areas will be taken into shape in Vietnam， working towards the goals of 10 billion U.S. dollars in export turnover and an annual average growth of 12-14 percent.
The total area used for brackish water shrimp farming should reach 710，000 hectares with a total output of 850，000 tons of shrimp during the 2017-2020 period. These figures are expected to expand to 750，000 hectares and 1.1 million tons of output in the period from 2020-2025， respectively， said the plan.
Areas will be zoned off for the hi-tech brackish water shrimp raising， concentrating in the country's Mekong Delta and central coastal regions.
To realize these goals， the MARD pledged to improve irrigation and transport systems at large-scale shrimp farming areas， while encouraging small-scale production facilities to join in cooperatives to create large material production areas.
The ministry will invest in research to produce quality breeding shrimps and develop the domestic feed industry while the application of modern technologies in shrimp farming and processing will be encouraged to ensure food safety and foreign customers' demands.
In 2017， Vietnam's shrimp export revenue is expected to go up 9 percent year-on-year to hit 3.4 billion U.S. dollars， said the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers.
HELSINKI, Oct. 21 (Xinhua) -- The first ski trail is ready touse and the season for cross-country skiing has kicked off inRovaniemi, the capital of Finnish Lapland on Monday.
Though snow has not fallen yet in the Finnish Lapland, the7.5-km ski track has been deployed by using snow stored since lastwinter in Ounasvaara, a couple of km from the city center ofRovaniemi, reported Finnish national broadcaster YLE.
The temperature is around 2 degrees Celsius currently inRovaniemi.
"We've had excellent conditions to prepare the track, so it'shappened quickly and it's in good shape," Heikki Keskitalo, CEO ofthe Santasport that built the track, was quoted as saying.
According to Keskitalo, there were some difficulties in doingthe work.
Usually snowfall in February generate most of snow for storage,but last February was warmer than unusual. However, the cold springlater allowed them to collect a total of 23,000 cubic meter ofsnow.
Moreover, the snow was protected from last summer's scorchingheat by a 30-cm layer of sawdust. Fortunately some 15,000 cubicmeters of snow survived, which is enough to lay down the season'sfirst track, added Keskitalo.
Keskitalo told YLE that the ski track in Ounasvaara is the bestplace to ski so far in Finland, and it is open to the public freeof charge. Enditem
