The Tien Giang Telecommunications and Post Office and the provincial Farmers’ Association signed an agreement to provide post, telecommunications and computer services for communal post offices in order to improve farmers’ lives.

Tien Giang Telecommunications will buy equipment for local post offices to give farmers free access to Internet and intra-regional telephone services.

The provincial PO will provide free newspapers and publications to be read on site to farmers.

The programme will be implemented at 70 local POs in the second quarter of 2009, and at 150 provincial POs in 2010.
