Deputy Director of Department of Agriculture and Rural Development - Dinh Thi Phuong Khanh asks farmers to apply new technologies to create quality products

After 4 years of implementation, the project has achieved some positive results. The province has established many pilot models of beef cattle farming with high technology applications. The models play an important role in the application of technologies in practice and have a great spread to farmers.

The role of cooperative groups and cooperatives has been increasingly asserted. Farmers have actively cooperated in farming, gradually change their old habits and boldly applied advanced techniques to production. Therefore, the production efficiency and income of members have been improved.

The project "Building high-tech concentrated beef growing area" has achieved some positive results

The province has established 10 pilot models; initially replicated in Duc Hoa and Duc Hue districts; supported to provide 181 cows and 75 machines.

The province has granted VietGAHP certificates to 4 units (2 cooperatives, 1 cooperative group, 1 farm) and organized technical training courses for farmers; cooperated with Ho Chi Minh City University of Agriculture and Forestry to consult and support members in reorganizing production.

However, the project still has had some obstacles in the implementation process such as the difficulties in the capital, the delay in disbursing capital for the model, the limitations in technical application, the weakness of cooperative managers, etc. In addition, farmers have been not interested in participating in the models; product underwriting cannot be implemented.

Getting overseas students back home Getting overseas students back home
The brain drain and lack of practical education were among the major problems facing the country, students and leading members of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union told HCM City education officials at a conference yesterday.

Students from 130 high schools in the city attended the meeting organised by the municipal Department of Education and Training to discuss improvements to training quality and school programmes.

 

 

Their main concern was the brain drain. Pham Thi Yen Nhi, an 11th grader at the elite Le Hong Phong High School, said many students had gone abroad to study in recent years but did not come back to work in Viet Nam.

 

 

Not many students had the desire to help build their homeland, she said, adding the Government should work out policies to attract them home.

Another concern the students raised was their school programme’s focus on theory rather than practice.

 

 

Nguyen Bich Quynh, an 11th grader at another elite institution, Tran Dai Nghia High School, asked the officials why despite completing such long and arduous courses, many people failed to get good jobs after graduation. Even if they did, employers have to retrain them, she said.

 

 

Tran Tien Thinh of Le Thanh Ton High School in District 7 expressed the same opinion, saying education must be more practically-oriented.

 

 

Others expressed worries about the bad behaviour and use of obscene language by high school students, saying courses to teach them good behaviour were required from an early age.

 

 

Nguyen Thi Ngoc Bich of Long Truong High School in District 9 said there should be more sex education at the high-school level.

 

 

The changes the city and country are going through, students’ aspirations and the role of young people in the city’s industrialisation and modernisation were also discussed.

 

 

Huynh Cong Minh, director of the Department of Education and Training, said the conference provided a good opportunity to listen to students and promised more regular interaction in future.

Government gives more incentives for agricultural developmentGovernment gives more incentives for agricultural development
Enterprises investing in agriculture and rural areas will be granted with additional incentives in terms of land allocation, vocational training, market expansion, services, scientific and technological applications, and transportation fees.

The Government lately issued Decree 61/2010/ND-CP, stipulating additional preferences for agricultural and rural development.

The Decree will take effect since July 25, 2010. 

The list of preferential sectors includes cultivation, aquaculture, and development of raw materials for processing zones. 

According to the Decree, the Government will exempt or cut 50-70% of fees for land or water surface leased up to 15 years in maximum for agricultural enterprises.

Those enterprises will be given a cut of 50-100% of vocational training fees, 50-70% of advertisement costs, as well as 50-70% of expenditures for participating in exhibitions. In addition, they will have to pay lower costs, from 50% to 100%, for accessing to information about agricultural production.

As reported by the Vietnam Economic Management Review (VEMR), there are around 39,000 enterprises operating in the agricultural sector and rural areas and accounting for 30% of domestic businesses. The figure is relatively low due to poor competitiveness, high risks of natural disasters, and long-term capital refund.  

Hence, the Decree is expected to lure more inflows of investment in the sector and rural areas, benefit peasants and utilize potentials there. 

The new policy will encourage enterprises to pour more investment in perfecting socio-economic infrastructure in rural areas, spurring production activities and services for job generation, renovation and modernization in the countryside.
