Public Security Minister Tran Dai Quang, who is also Head of the Steering Committee for the Central Highlands, suggested ways to develop the coffee sector:“Central Highlands provinces should work closely with central agencies, especially the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, in planning coffee growing areas, improving seedling quality, and applying advanced technology in coffee cultivation and processing. It’s important for Vietnam to learn from foreign coffee growers techniques and ways to expand markets and attract more tourists.”

The 4-day festival will feature a coffee fair, an exhibition of Buon Ma Thuot coffee, a conference on sustainable coffee development, and a wooden statue carving contest.
