PM: Smart agriculture should provide leverage for Thai Binh’s growth

Prime Minister Nguyen Xun Phuc on Thursday praised Thai Binh province for its dynamism and creativity in improving its business environment and realizing the Party guidelines and State policies on agriculture, farmers, and rural areas.

Speaking at a ceremony to announce the zoning of an industrial area in service to agriculture in the northern region, the Prime Minister said the project is significant to Thai Binh and the agricultural economy in the northern region, insofar as it aims toward building an advanced agricultural sector: With a new and smarter way of working, Thai Binh province has become a role model in promoting the development of agriculture, farmers and rural areas and the participation in agricultural production as such. The province should focus more on attracting large-scale projects, increasing mechanization, as well as industrializing agriculture and rural areas in a sustainable manner.

The Prime Minister asked the province to promote smart agriculture to make it a boost of local growth in the context of the 4th Industrial Revolution.

The same day, the Prime Minister attended a ceremony to begin the construction of a coastal road in the province, together with the inauguration of the Thai Binh thermo power plant, and a ceremony to kick-off the construction of a 1,000-bed international general hospital in the locality, which is expected to be completed within five years. While in Thai Binh, the leader paid tribute to President Ho Chi Minh at a temple in Hoang Dieu ward, and visited and presented gifts to social policy beneficiaries and revolutionaries in Thai Binh city and Vu Thu district.
