National Assembly deputies have discussed a plan on economic restructuring until 2020 towards sustainability and a farming focus.

Deputy Chu Le Chau from Lai Chau province suggested measures to ensure efficient economic restructuring:"We need to improve our forecast capacity to ensure a rapid response to world developments and identify key industries with comparative advantages. The government should prioritize resources for key tasks for the harmonious combination of economic, social and environmental issues."

Deputy Pham Thi Loan from Hanoi commented on agricultural restructuring on high value products: "Besides investment in infrastructure, institutional reform and land accumulation, human resources should be boosted in high tech areas including bio technology to create breakthrough changes in rural development and farming."
