The Indian rice industry plays a vital role in the economic growth, employment rates and foreign exchange earnings. It is a huge agricultural sector, which makes lot of money. All thanks to the preferential soil, climatic conditions and growing technology. India is the largest producer and exporter of Rice, all over the world. It supplies almost 20 per cent of the total rice exports.

As per statistics, West Bengal is been considered as the largest producer of rice in the country. The region has nearly half of its arable land under rice cultivation, which comes to about 5 million hectares of rice growing area. In the financial year of 2016, the same state produced over 14.8 million tonnes of rice, thus remaining as the highest rice- producing state in the country. The rice industry in India is been expected to continue producing at world- leading rates.

    Theo giới chuyên gia nhận định thì bất động sản nghỉ dưỡng Việt
    Nam chưa xứng với tiềm năng phát triển. Bất động
    sản nghỉ dưỡng lên ngôi tại TP. Sự phát triển của hệ thống cơ sở hạ
    tầng kết nối tại các địa điểm du lịch mới nổi giàu tiềm năng.

    Như vậy, mảnh đất Phú Quốc sẽ là cơ hội to lớn cho các nhà đầu tư bất động sản để đi trước đón đầu với tiềm năng tăng giá mạnh.

    Tuy vậy, theo đánh giá của nhiều chuyên gia, không phải dự án bất động
    sản nghỉ dưỡng nào cũng có thể mang lại giá trị sinh
    lời dài hạn. Thuận tiện di chuyển, do nằm ngay trung tâm nên sinh hoạt
    rất thuận lợi, tiết kiêm được rất nhiều thời gian đi lại.
    Bình Thuận sở hữu nhiều nét đẹp của tự nhiên với bờ biển dài, cát mịn và khí hậu thuận lợi cho du lịch trải nghiệm, nghỉ dưỡng và thể thao biển.
