Development of areas specialising in medicinal herbs

Quang Nam mountainous areas are famous for a diversity of medicinal herbs, including 832 species, such as Ngoc Linh ginseng in Nam Tra My, Tra My cinnamon, morinda officinalis and codonopsis javanica in Tay Giang.

Currently, the province is making effort to preserve and develop the species of local medicinal herbs.

Thanks to the proper conservation policies, the areas of medicinal herbs are increasingly enlarged, contributing to the local poverty alleviation.

Besides planting indigenous species, the successful acclimatisation, especially of Ngoc Linh ginseng, to other places is one of the local considerable efforts so that medicinal herbs can help better the local income.

In addition, there have been a lot of solutions and suggestions for Ngoc Linh ginseng development, ensuring the quality of ginseng, protecting the national brand of Ngoc Linh ginseng.

Quang Nam is attempting to become a national centre for Ngoc Linh ginseng seedlings, calling for investment in Ngoc Linh ginseng production and processing.

Hopefully, there will be 50-100 products made of/from Ngoc Linh ginseng exported by 2030.
