PM vows to introduce clean farm produce to the world

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc pressed the button to launch a high-tech agricultural production at a VinEco farm in the northern province of Ha Nam on Thursday.

As one of the 14 VinEco farms invested by VinGroup, the project sprawls over 180ha at a cost of nearly 13 million USD. Speaking at the event, the PM described agriculture as an economic pillar of the country and called for developing organic and smart farming engaging private businesses and cooperatives, pledging to introduce Vietnam's clean farm produce to the world. He asked the State Bank to increase the value of preferential credit package to high-tech agriculture firms. He asked the province to develop labour force to expand markets, promote trademarks and improve packaging, thus ensuring stable consumption. He suggested further encouraging start-ups operating in agriculture and enhancing technology transfer. In the morning the same day, the PM visited Japan's Sumi Vietnam Wiring System company in Dong Van II industrial park in Duy Tien district and Ha Nam high-tech agriculture investment and development company in Nhan Khang commune, Ly Nhan district
