Vietnamese agriculture seeks ways to adapt to new context

Vietnam should step up green agriculture to adapt to the new context, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Le Minh Hoan said at a seminar in Hanoi on November 16.

At the same time, the country needs a changed mindset in agriculture, targeting a high-tech, eco-friendly, responsible and sustainable agricultural sector instead of that with high output, he added.

To that end, the minister suggested suitable digital transformation in agriculture and rural areas, scientific management in production, harvest and distribution, personnel training, cooperation and connectivity in the sector.

At the seminar, experts exchanged views on some orientations to spur agricultural development during the process of reform and integration, and promote brands of Vietnamese agricultural products.

They said agricultural restructuring would be done by optimising potential and advantages, focusing on linking domestic and international supply chains, thus creating a new position for Vietnamese agriculture.

The seminar was jointly held by the National Economics University and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.
