The province of Choluteca in southern Honduras, bordering the Pacific Ocean, has abundant sunshine all year round, is rich in sugar and melons, and is exported in large quantities. Local agriculture contributes more than 15 per cent to Honduras' GDP. Now let's follow the lens of the reporter of the main station to understand the development of resources and industries there.
Wang Yuguo, reporter of the main station: Choluteca is an important city in southern Honduras. Before entering the city, you must pass a chic cross-river bridge that was once the view of the old Honduran 20 yuan bill.
The municipality of Çolutka is the capital of the province of Choluteca in Honduras, and has long earned a high reputation in Central America for its many specialty plantations and aquaculture products. On both sides of the main road, there are many fruit and melon stalls like this.
Wang Yuguo, reporter of the main station: This young man is very real. He heard that I was a friend from China and asked him how much this melon was, and he said he could give it to me for free. But I insisted, and finally he agreed to sell me 25 Hong coins, which is equivalent to 6.5 yuan.
Carlos, a local melon farmer: We have a very good impression of China and Chinese are very welcome to come to us. Although there is still a gap in the supply of local drinking water and electricity, it is believed that it will improve in the next few years.
On the roads leading to the southern countryside, such super-tall and oversized vans are common. Large trucks loaded with freshly harvested sugarcane were sent to a large sugar refinery.
In front of a set of vertical sprinkler installations, we met 20-year-old Fernandos. He said that despite its remoteness from China, he was no stranger to Chinese. There are at least three Chinese restaurants in nearby towns.
Fernandos, a local sugar cane plantation worker: I like to eat Chinese food, I go to Chinese restaurants every week, I like to eat fried rice noodles or fried rice.
Wang Yuguo, reporter of the main station: The southern region of Honduras has plenty of sunshine, which is very suitable for the cultivation of melons, fruits and sugar cane. In recent years, the sugarcane plantations here have also been converted to organic farms, for example, after extracting organic sugars, the waste residue of sugarcane can be used as organic fertilizer for the next season's sugarcane growth. However, if further deep processing projects are carried out, such as extracting organic components from sugarcane residue to make pollution-free plastic bags, such projects have not been widely promoted locally.
