After 3 years of implementation, the High-tech agricultural development program has achieved initial results

The project has implemented many models of advanced technology in the production of over 18,500 hectares (15,075 hectares of rice, 1,476 hectares of vegetables, 2,077 hectares of dragon fruits). Up to now, 43 cooperatives and 151 cooperative groups have been established in the areas where the project has been implemented and 16 pilot cooperatives have been built.

In addition, trade promotion, dialogue and support of cooperative groups, cooperatives and businesses in the production area have been well implemented, contributing to solving many difficulties and obstacles. The province has established 12 safe food supply chains on vegetables, chicken, rice, and pork; 14 locations that sell safe food in districts and Tan An city. By the end of 2019, the province plans to build 13 more locations selling safe food. For the beef cattle raising area, the province has built 2 cooperatives and 15 cooperative groups, 10 models of high-tech applications and supported 181 cows.

According to the Director of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development - Nguyen Thanh Truyen, the project has faced many difficulties. To be more specific, the clean land fund for attracting investment has been insufficient. Some high-tech application models have been initially effective, but farmers have faced difficulties in reciprocal capital for replication. Some cooperatives and cooperatives have been still weak in both human resources and finance. The connection between production and product consumption in some models has been limited. The technical infrastructure for agricultural production has been focused on investment but many localities have not yet met the requirements, etc.

Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can gives a speech at the conference

Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can said: "Farmers play a key role in the implementation of the High-tech agricultural development program in association with restructuring agriculture. Enterprises are the venue in connecting product consumption. Therefore, in order to implement the project effectively, it is necessary to deeply and broadly propagate to raise awareness for people to participate in cooperatives and cooperative groups as well as comply with cooperative regulations. Therefore, people have produced effectively and no longer depended on the support of the State".

Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee, Chairman of the Provincial People's Council - Pham Van Ranh highly appreciated the achievements after 3 years of implementing the Program, contributing to the transformation of plants and animals vigorously in the province.

In the coming time, he asked the branches and local authorities to intensify the propaganda of Resolution 08 of the Provincial Party Committee on developing high-tech applications associated with agricultural restructuring; regularly hold dialogues with businesses and cooperatives to solve difficulties; strive to complete the construction of 4 typical cooperatives to replicate the program by the end of 2019; focus on trade promotion for the province's key agricultural products; and effectively implement mechanisms and policies to support the implementation of the project./.​

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.

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.

VN to establish agro-product trading floor VN to establish agro-product trading floor
Permanent Deputy PM Nguyễn Sinh Hùng has recently agreed to establish Việt Nam’s first agro-products trading floor in the southern city of Kiên Giang.

The plan is one of many Government-backed farming projects to support farmers and boost the country’s agriculture development.

As reported, the agro-products trading floor will be operated in the same way like gold or stock floors. The posted price will be evaluated by appropriate authorities. Posted products must meet quality and quantity standards, therefore, farmers will have better selling price at the floor than at the market. All agricultural products can be posted on the floor.

The floor aims at creating opportunities for farmers to interact directly with their consumers, to better understand the needs and demands of markets, and to sell products at higher prices.

If this establishment is a success, more similar floors will be opened in the near future.

Long An: In the first 6 months of 2019, export turnover is estimated at USD 2.92 billionLong An: In the first 6 months of 2019, export turnover is estimated at USD 2.92 billion
In the first 6 months of 2019, the export turnover in Long An province is estimated at USD 2.92 billion, increasing to 15 percent over the same period in 2018 (increase to 20 percent). Besides, import turnover reached USD 2.2 billion, up 13.2 percent over the same period in 2018 (increase to 4 percent).

Dragon fruit is the most exported product of Long An province

At present, there are more than 800 enterprises participating in export and import in the whole province. These enterprises have exported to more than 120 countries and territories around the world. 

Export products include rice, cashew nuts, aquacuture products, dragon fruit, seedless lemon, leather shoes, textile products, mechanical products, electric wires - electric cables, agricultural machinery and equipment, plastic products, and so on.

Imported products mainly include textile and garment materials, chemicals, plastics, animal feed materials, machinery and equipment.

According to the general assessment, despite the growth, export turnover is slower than the same period in 2018. One of the reasons is the fluctuation of the world market and domestic enterprises, especially the inability to predict all risks in the trade of agricultural products exporters.

In addition, many countries are increasing technical barriers, quotas and requirements for quality and origin of goods. Therefore, the increase in export of the province is not as effective as expected. In addition, the province's export volume in light industry depends heavily on foreign invested enterprises (FDI). At present, the export turnover of the province still depends on FDI enterprises, accounting for about 70 percent.

In order to promote the export of goods, especially agricultural products, the province focuses on propagating the market regulations; provide list and process of using pesticides in agricultural production, encourage the production of VietGAP and GlobalGAP standards; and ensure food safety to enhance the competitiveness of Vietnamese agricultural products.

On the other hand, the province also focus on investment and trade promotion; seeking and expanding new markets besides traditional markets; contacting and mobilizing investment, especially investment promotion agencies and economic representatives of Vietnam in foreign countries./.

Specifically, the total basic construction capital as planned in Long An province in 2019 is VND 4,246 billion. In which, the basic construction capital managed by the province is over VND 2,951 billion and the basic construction capital allocated to the districts is nearly VND 1,295 billion.

Provincial Road (PR) 826B (in Can Duoc district) - one of the works in "the Program for mobilizing all resources to build transport infrastructure to serve the industrial development in the key economic region" in the province

Long An Department of Planning and Investment informed that basic construction investment in the province has been implemented as planned from the beginning of the year until now. Accordingly, "The program for mobilizing all resources to build transport infrastructure to serve the industrial development in the key economic region" and 3 key projects under the Resolution of the 10th provincial Party Congress (term 2015-2020) continue to be focused, urgently implemented and disbursed its capital as planned from the beginning of the year.

Accordingly, the total basic construction capital as planned in 2019 in the province is 4,246 billion VND. In which, the basic construction capital managed by the province is over VND 2,951 billion and the basic construction capital allocated and managed by the districts is nearly VND 1,295 billion.

For the basic construction capital managed by the province is over VND 2,951 billion, the value of the volume implemented about VND 1,325 billion in the first 5 months of 2019, reaching 44.9 percent of the plan, equaling 118 percent in value and equal to 91.2 percent of the rate over the same period. The disbursement value for 5 months is about VND 1,275 billion, reaching 43.2 percent of the plan, 116 percent in value and 89.5 percent of the rate in comparison with the same period.

The provincial basic construction capital allocated and managed by districts is VND 1,294 billion, by the end of May 2019, the value of volume for implementation and disbursement is about VND 361 billion, reaching 27.9 percent of the plan.

According to the assessment, although the provincial leaders directed as well as the investors urged and disbursed the capital from the beginning of the year, the volume of implementation and disbursement of some projects is slow compared to the plan. The reason is that the National Target Program is allocated in the middle of March 2019, so investors have not implemented and disbursed yet. In addition, new construction projects in 2019 started to apply online bidding, so investors were embarrassed in the early months of the year. However, most of the works have completed the bidding work until now and prepared to start construction in June 2019.

Chairman of Long An Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can directs the task-assigned departments to focus on "The program for mobilizing all resources to build transport infrastructure to serve industrial development in key economic regions" and 3 key projects under the Resolution of the 10th provincial Party Congress, term 2015 - 2020.

Simultaneously, the task-assigned departments continue to urge investors to urgently implement and disburse capital plans when the volume is eligible for payment; they regularly monitor the progress of implementation to promptly remove difficulties and problems arising./.

Bird flu found in poultry in northern VietnamBird flu found in poultry in northern Vietnam
Bird flu has resurfaced in poultry in northern Thai Nguyen Province after many months without any cases in the nation, the Tuoi Tre daily quoted a report from the Vietnam News Agency on Saturday.
Animal health officials confirmed on Saturday that the H5N1 virus had killed several birds among a flock of more than 100 ducks in Thai Nguyen Town, about 80 kilometers (50 miles) north of Hanoi.

Earlier this year in late January, officials had detected the virus in dead chickens at a farm in the same town and nearly 4,200 chickens had been slaughtered.

According to Deputy Health Minister Trinh Quan Huan last week, there was a very high risk of bird flu returning during the winter and spring in northern Vietnam. The H5N1 strain seems to thrive best in low temperatures.

The Tet Lunar New Year festival late next month is also considered a high-risk time for the spread of bird flu because the slaughter, trade and consumption of poultry, and smuggling of birds from neighboring China, rises sharply.

The Health Ministry last week issued a nationwide bird flu alert, urging cities and provinces to step up detection and epidemic control measures.

Five Vietnamese have died of bird flu so far this year out of six reported H5N1 infections and all were found in northern Vietnam during the first quarter of the year. No new human deaths have been reported since March.

The Southeast Asian nation has recorded 106 infections, the second highest number of cases among the 15 countries with known human cases, after Indonesia.

Since 2003, the World Health Organization has confirmed 391 human cases of bird flu, of which 247 people have died. In Vietnam, 52 people have died, the second highest toll after Indonesia, where the virus has killed 113 people.

Bird flu mainly kills animals, but scientists fear it could mutate to jump easily from human to human, sparking a global pandemic.

Clean production for safe productsClean production for safe products
In the past years, Long An agricultural sector actively propagated and instructed farmers about clean production to create safe products, increase productivity, output, quality as well as meet market demand, towards sustainable and environmentally-friendly farming.

Meeting market demand

Currently, the use of chemicals in cultivation and animal husbandry negatively affects consumers' health. Therefore, the agricultural sector recommends that farmers use pesticides effectively and not to use banned substances to ensure food safety.

For vegetable cultivation, functional branches and localities implement several clean production models such as melon production model in the net house based on Israeli technology at Tam Nong Viet Cooperative (Can Giuoc district, Long An province). Accordingly, the melon is fertilized in combination with drip irrigation according to the process and not using pesticides.

 1392019Nông-dân-sản-xuất-sạch-để-đáp-ứng-nhu-cầu-thị-trường.jpg

Clean production to meet market demand

According to the director of Tam Nong Viet Cooperative - Dinh Bat Quy, at the beginning of 2018, he invested over 400 million VND to build a net house with an automatic watering system and tried to plant more than 1,000 square meters of Thailand origin melon.

He said: "From planting to harvesting, it takes 65 days with 4 crops per year. The productivity of 1,000 square meters of application of Israeli technology is 3 tons, the average price is 45,000 VND per kilogram, the profit is over 150 million VND. At present, I am expanding the model to 1 hectare of clean melon. Planting melon in net houses brings many benefits such as preventing rain and insects, reducing production costs, etc. Besides, because of not using pesticides (only using natural biological products), the products are trusted by consumers. Clean melon of the cooperative has been consumed in the market in and outside the province."

Director of Phuoc Hoa Safe Vegetable Cooperative (Can Duoc district, Long An province) - Kieu Anh Dung said: "The cooperative has 42 members with an area of 15 hectares. Our products have safety certification. Every day, the cooperative consumes about 2.5 tons of vegetables. We also invested in a net house of hydroponic vegetable production with an area of 500 square meters. Currently, the vegetable products provide to the market in and outside the province as well as 2 stores of the cooperatives (in Ward 2 market, Tan An city and Thanh Hoa market, Thanh Hoa district). In addition, we also invested in seeding machine and filtering water systems with the amount of more than 150 million VND."

In order to produce clean products, the province carried out a high-tech agricultural production in association with restructuring agriculture project. Up to now, the province has over 13,364 hectares of high technology applications on rice, reaching 66.82 percent of the plan; nearly 1,446 hectares of high-tech applications on vegetables, reaching 72 percent of the plan; about 1,634 hectares of high technology applied dragon fruit, reaching 81.7 percent of the plan.

By 2020, the province tries to have 4 high-tech agricultural production areas in association with agricultural restructuring. Accordingly, there are 20,000 hectares of rice, 2,000 hectares of dragon fruit, 2,000 hectares of vegetables and 5,000 beef cattle with 1-2 agricultural businesses applying high technology.

Clean production to meet market demand

Head of the provincial Sub-Department of Cultivation, Plant Protection and Agricultural Product Quality Control - Nguyen Van Cuong said: "The province has focused on building agricultural chains to contribute to the implementation of safe supply chains of agricultural, forestry and fishery products; control product quality, ensure food safety; link product distribution in the provincial market. At the same time, this activity also builds the brand and creates consumers' belief in safety chain products; form a habit of using safe food. Up to now, the province has built 12 distribution chains of clean products (vegetables, rice, chicken, pork, etc.); coordinated with Ho Chi Minh City Food Safety Management Board to survey, build and award 9 certificates of participation in the chain; and organized 14 safe selling places in the province.

"In addition, the sector also strengthens inspection and supervision. In the first 6 months of 2019, the Sub-Department checked 454 samples. In which, 452 samples meet the required standards, 2 samples were contaminated with borax. In testing food safety criteria, 1 in 52 samples contaminated with Benzoate (Cao Thi Huyen household business, Tan Tru town, Tan Tru district). In the evaluation of 105 establishments that produce and trade in agricultural products, 17 ones were achieved grade A, 88 ones were ranked grade B. In addition, 48,906 households signed a commitment to secure production, increasing more than 28,000 households compared to the same period in 2018 "- Mr. Cuong added.​​

Strengthening propaganda

According to Deputy Director of Department of Agriculture and Rural Development - Dinh Thi Phuong Khanh, the agricultural sector and local authorities continue to inform about the harms of using pesticides in the wrong process, the harms of unsafe food; comply with "4 right" on the use of pesticides, veterinary drugs; benefits of building safe food supply chains, applying good manufacturing practices (GAP, GMP). The sector also focuses on expanding, developing a model of the safe food supply chain; closely connect managers, scientists, farmers, businesses and cooperatives; continues to coordinate with the  Ho Chi Minh City Food Safety Management Board to build a safe food supply chain.
