On June 16, 2021, Nosco Shipyard purchased 5 tons of Bac Giang lychee to give to the Company’s employees and local residents. This activity is in response to the call of the Vietnamese Government and the authorities of Quang Ninh and Bac Giang provinces to support the consumption of local agricultural products.
The recent outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic in Bac Giang took place at the time to harvest lychee – a local specialty that is exported to many markets around the world e.g., US, Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia, Europe, etc. with retail price from VND350,000 – 500,000 per kilogram. Besides, the pandemic is getting worse all over the world and Vietnam, which has greatly affected the consume lychee and the life of farmers in Bac Giang province. In order to support Bac Giang province, the Government and provinces across Vietnam simultaneously launched a movement to support and uphold the spirit of Vietnamese people using Vietnamese goods. The purchasing is carried out by the local government of Bac Giang province, controlled and took place in an orderly manner to limit the spread of the COVID-19. It also helps preventing the purchase price falling too low.
We hopes to make a small contribution to share difficulties with farmers, and at the same time, this is also an opportunity for Nosco Shipyard’s employees to enjoy “genuine” Bac Giang lychee, which is fragrant and nutritious.
Vietnam has seen another wave of COVID-19. This time, it is more aggressive with cases and deaths increased in number. However, in the worst circumstance, we see sympathy, sharing and consensus among Vietnamese people: people in the red zones stay at home for self-quarantine, local authorities of the safe zones send medical task forces and equipment to help the red zones, many philanthropists donate monies to purchase necessities and medical goods for doctors and nurses who are in the front line, etc. Nosco Shipyard is pleased to play a part in our community by contributing Covid-19 funds to Quang Yen’s Government where we headquartered. We hope this small contribution will bring more medical equipment, vaccine, food, water, etc. for our beloved people on the Vietnamese homeland. Join up and fight hard, we will win!
