Agriculture aims to be among most developed countries worldwide by 2030

The country is currently striving to have its agriculture rank among the 15 most developed nations globally by 2030, with hopes that the farm product processing industry can be among the top 10 countries in the world and a centre for deep processing and logistics of global agricultural trade

This goal comes after Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc recently issued Government Directive No. 25 relating to a number of tasks and solutions aimed at developing the domestic agro-forestry-fishery product processing industry and mechanising agricultural production.

agriculture aims to be among most developed countries worldwide by 2030

Many agricultural production models apply high technology, helping earn higher profits

The directive states that, despite the mechanisation of agriculture and the agro-processing industry achieving remarkable achievements in recent times, the development has still fallen below the inherent potential that exists for the agricultural sector along with the strengths of many localities.

PM Phuc therefore requests that ministers, heads of ministerial-level agencies, heads of government agencies, and chairs of People's Committees of centrally-run provinces and cities perform well when following their assigned functions and tasks by directing and implementing orientations to boost the development of the local agro-processing industry and agricultural mechanisation.

The PM has also asked the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development to review previously promulgated plans relating to agricultural mechanisation and the agro-processing industry in an effort to integrate them into national planning.

The ministry will therefore co-ordinate efforts with ministries, sectors, and localities in an effort to formulate and submit plans for approval to various national planning schemes ahead in the 2021 to 2030 period according to the Planning Law.

The ministry has been requested to build a project that can develop three agricultural processing industries towards being ranked among the leading five countries worldwide in terms of fruit and vegetables, sea food, timber, and wood products, all of which must be submitted to the Prime Minister for consideration during the final quarter of 2020.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade will also co-ordinate efforts alongside the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development to implement synchronous solutions aimed at taking full advantage of the opportunities that exists through impending free trade agreements. This includes the European Union-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership with regard to processed agricultural products.

The Ministry of Science and Technology will be concentrating and prioritising investment in the application of science and technology in terms of production, processing, and preservation of agricultural products. This will effectively implement national science and technology schemes to support businesses, farmers, and co-operatives to upgrade agricultural product processing and preservation technology with a priority being given to key national agricultural products.

Elsewhere, the Ministry of Planning and Investment is set to balance and allocate investment capital for the implementation of the project aimed at developing three agricultural processing industries in the near future.
