10-year national food security project reviewed

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc chaired an online conference Wednesday to review 10 years of implementing Vietnam’s national food security project until 2020.

Mr. Phuc said food security is an important task now and in the long run. Ensuring food security is essential to the government’s double target this year of defending Vietnam against the Covid-19 epidemic and achieving its socio-economic goals despite the challenges posed by climate change.

The Prime Minister said that for the past 10 years Vietnam’s food production has been strong. Vietnam is one of the 3 biggest rice exporters in the world, exporting close to 7 million tons a year. Modern technology has made Vietnamese rice the most delicious in the world and steadily improved farmers’ lives.
