As a result, most of the areas implementing the high-tech rice production model have higher productivity than traditional rice production areas from 300-500 kilogram per hectare and get higher profit from 4 to 6 million VND per hectare. Especially, the models of transplanting rice associated with the consumption of seed rice have a higher profit from 6 to 8 million VND per hectare than those out of the models.

In order to produce high-tech application rice effectively, at the conference, representatives of 6 districts and town were chosen as the places to implement the project (including districts of Tan Hung, Vinh Hung, Moc Hoa, Tan Thanh and Thanh Hoa and Kien Tuong town) presented the advantages and difficulties in implementing models and manage high-tech application rice production in localies; discuss, give ideas and develop plans to overcome difficulties and ensure the progress of project completion.

Since it was launched in early December last year, the portal has so far provided 389 services (160 for individuals and 229 for businesses).

Online public services help save nearly 6.5 trillion VND (282.6 million USD) per year.

The Government public service portal itself helps save more than 3 trillion VND (130.5 million USD) per year./.

Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development - Nguyen Xuan Cuong surveys consumption of dragon fruits in Long AnMinister of Agriculture and Rural Development - Nguyen Xuan Cuong surveys consumption of dragon fruits in Long An
On February 11, the delegation of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development headed by the Central Party Committee Member, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development - Nguyen Xuan Cuong as the head of the delegation, had a survey actual situation of purchasing fruits in Long An province.

Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee, Chairman of the Provincial People's Council - Pham Van Ranh, Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can receive the delegation.

The whole province currently has 11,825.7 hectares growing dragon fruit, of which the area for fruit is about 9,586.2 hectares, the yield of 321.5 quintals per hectare, the output of 317,932 tons, concentrated mainly in Chau Thanh, Tan Tru, Ben Luc, Thu Thua districts and Tan An city.

Currently, dragon fruit is in the harvest season but the consumption situation is facing many difficulties. The amount of unexploited dragon fruit from the end of January 2020 is now about 30,000 tons. 59,580 tons will be harvested in February 2020 and 31,750 tons will be harvested in March 2020. Facing the complicated situation of acute pneumonia caused by the new strain of Corona virus, a series of markets and border gates to China are announcing the delay of opening time, Chinese partners purchasing dragon fruits will not accept goods.

At the meeting, Deputy General Director of Lavifood Group - Dinh Hung Dung said that some of the main fruits that the group purchased were harvested in large quantities after Tet 2020, while at the beginning of the year with difficulties. Fruit that the group buys and processes is mainly exported to the Chinese market. To help farmers solve the output, the group has stepped up purchasing to freeze. The volume of goods purchased in this phase of the group is over 1,000 tons.

Currently, all of the group's cold stores are full. Therefore, the group has to hire a lot of warehouses of other businesses to continue purchasing fruits for farmers.

To overcome the current difficulties, Chairman of Long An Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can proposed: The Government has a policy to support the electricity cost for running cool storage (support for the production electricity price equal to the cost of living electricity from the middle of February 2020 to the end of March 2020), providing loan interest support for enterprises purchasing, preserving and exporting agricultural products with preferential rates for 6 months; The ministry considered proposing the establishment of a distribution center for agricultural products in the Chinese market as a focal point for dealing with domestic enterprises to limit risks; Survey and search for other agricultural export markets outside China; The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Ministry of Industry and Trade regularly provide information and support the export of dragon fruits at the northern border gates to timely regulate and continue negotiations with China to solve difficulties in exporting agricultural products.

Speaking at the survey, Mr. Nguyen Xuan Cuong emphasized that, in recent years, the whole country has focused on restructuring the agricultural sector in a synchronized manner. One of the positive changes is Vietnam's fruit and vegetable sector, which achieved positive results. 10 years ago, Vietnam's exports only reached tens of millions of dollars. By this time, the area of vegetables and fruits of Vietnam is about 1.6 million hectares, equal to 45 percent of the rice area but exports reach over 4 billion USD.

With these achievements, in the 7 key economic regions of the country, the Mekong River Delta has certain advantages. The area currently covers about 0.4 million hectares with 10 tropical fruits. This is a potential area of 60-70 percent of Vietnam's total export of fruits. Long An province is one of the localities to develop fruit trees with high efficiency, especially dragon fruit on 11,000 hectares. In the immediate future, a number of corporations, businesses and large factories processing, manufacturing and exporting agricultural products in general and Long An in the same time must be at the same time. At the same time, he also appreciated the industry and businesses of Long An that supported farmers to plant dragon fruits in the area.

Responding to the call, many businesses, organizations, individuals and so on have embarked on action to energize Vietnamese farmers and further contribute to initiatives, accompanying agricultural development in Vietnam sustainable, proactive and effective way.

At the meeting, Minister Nguyen Xuan Cuong and the delegation witnessed the commitment of Vietnamese farmers and farmers to accompany the farmers and agriculture of Vietnam such as Saigon Commercial Joint Stock Bank (SCB), Chain Co.opMart supermarket, Green Startup Fund, Lavifood Investment Joint Stock Company, etc./.

Long An: Discuss solutions to "rescue" nearly 30,000 tons of dragon fruitsLong An: Discuss solutions to "rescue" nearly 30,000 tons of dragon fruits
On February 5, Vice Chairman of Long An Provincial People's Committee - Pham Van Canh, Director of Department of Industry and Trade - Le Minh Duc chaired a conference with Departments of Industry and Trade of provinces and Ho Chi Minh City, enterprises, warehouses that buy dragon fruits to find solutions to consume dragon fruits due to the impact of acute respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV).

According to the report at the conference, the area of dragon fruit in the whole province is about 11,826 hectares, of which the fruit area is 9,587 hectares and the output is 320,000 tons. Last time, the consumption of dragon fruits is mainly from China, accounting for 70-80%. The rest is consumed in a number of countries and territories such as Thailand, Singapore, Korea, Europe, USA, Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Dubai, Newzealand, India, Australia, ... and consumption. domestic. Exports by non-quota routes still account for a relatively high proportion.

Due to the impact of acute respiratory infections caused by new strains of corona virus, limited traffic hindered trading activities, unexploited dragon fruit output from the end of January to the end of February 2020. 30,000 tons. In particular, in stock about 2,000 tons (cold storage period not exceeding 30 days), about 28,000 tons have not been harvested.

Chairman of Long An Dragon Fruit Association - Nguyen Quoc Trinh shared that, in the current difficult situation, the Association had a meeting with the warehouse, agreed to reduce purchasing price to 10,000 VND / kg in order to reduce damage. lowest for warehouses, drivers and gardeners. However, due to a large amount of inventory and harvested goods that could not be stored, some warehouses had to be closed without purchasing, leading to dragon fruit in some orchards still hanging on the trees, causing damage to The house have a garden.

Attending the conference, many comments from the Department of Industry and Trade of provinces and cities like Ho Chi Minh City and Can Tho shared the difficulties of Long An and will support "rescuing" dragon fruits through domestic consumption. . This is done by retail businesses. However, all of the current dragon fruit stagnation cannot be "rescued" and businesses have set the standard to be a quality food safety product, manufactured according to VietGap, Global Gap. The amount of "rescue" by domestic consumption many people think that "like salt to the sea", because domestic consumption will be very modest. Moreover, besides dragon fruit, many other agricultural products such as jackfruit, durian, rambutan, etc. are also difficult due to hindering trade with China.

Another solution also proposed by some delegates is to focus on consuming dragon fruits by deep processing such as plastic drying and drying.

Director of the Department of Industry and Trade of Long An - Le Minh Duc said that, currently, the export of agricultural products, especially dragon fruits, to China has many risks due to no specific contract, mainly by partners. together. He recommended businesses, cooperatives and farmers in trading, exporting agricultural products to China need to have a strict consumption contract, to avoid risks. More specifically, a long-term, sustainable solution should be implemented in crop production, including dragon fruits, which is to organize production in the direction of linking and food safety in accordance with VietGap and Global Gap standards to avoid supplementary. into a major market like today.

Vice Chairman of Long An Provincial People's Committee - Pham Van Canh assigned Department of Industry and Trade to continue working closely with the Long An Dragon Fruit Association to grasp the situation, promptly report to the provincial leaders and the Ministry of Industry and Trade to promptly direct the next solution; actively connecting businesses in the province that perform deep processing; boosting domestic consumption; Export fresh fruits to markets outside China, reducing losses to farmers.​​

The PCI is an index for measuring and assessing the quality of economic management, the level of convenience and friendliness of the business environment and administrative reform efforts of provincial governments in Vietnam, thereby it promotes the development of the private sector.

The PCI is built from annual enterprise survey data and is published yearly; including 10 component indicators, covering key areas of economic management of provinces and cities related to the development of enterprises. A locality is considered to have good operating quality when it has low market entry cost; easy access to land and stable land use; transparent business environment and public business information; low informal costs; quick time of inspection, examination and implementation of regulations and administrative procedures; fair competition environment; the provincial government's activeness and creativeness in solving problems for businesses; services for supporting business development and high quality; good labor training policies; fairly and effectively dispute settlement procedures, and maintaining security and order.

This result confirms the belief, satisfaction and recognition of the business community and investors for the continuous efforts of the provincial government in improving the business environment. However, if the province does not continue implementing measures to maintain and promote the high-ranking indexes and seriously overcome the low-ranking indicators, the results in the Top 10 provinces and cities with the best operating quality is also difficult to sustain.

This plan will inherit the advantages of the previous years' plan, and at the same time carefully follow each of the 10 component indicators, assign specific responsibilities to each department, sector and locality for implementation, monitoring and submission responsibility; strive to increase the score of each component index, towards increasing the overall score and raising the provincial PCI rating.

MOET’s decision brings death to a series of study branches MOET’s decision brings death to a series of study branches
The decision by the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) to not allow universities to enroll students under the B-group (students have to take exams in mathematics, chemistry and biology) for several training branches has caused surprise and opposition from many universities

The move, which is described as aiming to tighten the enrolment of students to universities, has not only surprised universities but also caused shock to several millions of students who are going to attend final exams and university entrance exams in June and July.

 

Information technology, which is considered the most fashionable and hottest training branch and proves to be the choice of many students, is one of the study branches which will not enroll students under the B-group.

 

The training division of the Hung Vuong People Founded University said that it received a lot of calls last week from students who asked why the university does not enroll students under group B for several study branches any more.

 

“We do not know how to explain it to students,” said Nguyen Thi Mong Binh, Head of the Training Division under Hung Vuong University. We informed in late-2008 that the university will enroll students under group B for these study branches. “We had been sure that we could enroll students under group B for those branches until we received the information several days ago,” she added.

 

The Van Hien People’s Founded University also said that it is still awaiting the final decision from MOET on the university’s enrolment of students under group B. Van Hien has been enrolling students under A, B, C and D groups for psychology and sociology branches since 2007. However, MOET has suddenly decided that the university will not enroll students under B group any more.

 

Nguyen Quoc Hop, Head of the Education Division under Van Hien University said that in 2007, the university gave detailed explanation to MOET about why the university needs to enroll students under group B for the two branches. With the explanations, the university got the permission from the ministry to enroll students under group B. However, the ministry has decided that the enrolment of students under group B will not be allowed after it got the nod before.

 

Nguyen Xuan Phong, Deputy Headmaster of FPT University, argued that it is a wrong decision to not allow enrolling students under group B for information technology study branch.

 

Phong said that information technology proves to link with many fields. IT engineers will have to work in many fields, which require them to have comprehensive knowledge in many fields, including biology.

 

It is clear that the sudden decision by MOET will affect the benefit of universities and students as well.

 

“Business administration, finance and banking, and accountancy study branches enroll 50% of total students. If MOET prohibits the university to enroll students under B group, this will seriously affect the management and training of the university,” said Mong Binh.

 

Meanwhile, Phong said that the sudden decision without any informing in advance proves to be the action MOET should not do because this will affect students negatively. He said that many students have been preparing for taking exams under group B for many years, and what will they have to do if they are not allowed to take exams under group B any more? If they still want to study information technology, they will have to take exams under group A (mathematics, physics and chemistry), and in this case, it is not sure that they will have enough time to prepare for this.

 

“I think education managers need to give reasonable answers before making decision, as the decision will affect students’ benefit and the economic development,” Phong said.

Besides supporting solutions, creating favorable conditions from state management agencies, enterprises make efforts to gradually overcome difficulties, restore production and business after the Covid-19 epidemic.

Enterprises strive to overcome difficulties, gradually restore production and business

Many difficulties besieged

The Covid-19 epidemic caused many difficulties for businesses operating in the province. Some companies have to stop activities or reduce production and business scale. This greatly affects the situation of local socio-economic development. Besides, some workers and employees in the province lost their jobs or reduced their income. Despite their hard work and efforts, enterprises need state management agencies to quickly deploy supportive measures from the government to be able to recover production and business soon.

According to the representative of Hu Kiet Co., Ltd. (in Luong Hoa commune, Ben Luc district), the company strictly enforces disease prevention and control measures from the government, the Ministry of Health and localities. The Covid-19 epidemic affected the operations of the company. Goods were not circulated, production was delayed. Although it was undesirable, the company was forced to terminate labor contracts with many workers because there was no revenue to pay wages. Currently, the disease situation has been good, the company began to restore production. The Government has many solutions to support businesses and individual business households, so we look forward to quickly deploying them to overcome difficulties and stabilize production soon.

Vice-Chairman of Ben Luc District People's Committee - Le Thanh Ut said that enterprises and business households in the district face many difficulties caused by Covid-19 disease. The number of inventories in the stores increased due to the inability to consume and tends to increase gradually over the coming months. Shortage of raw materials, workers who do not have jobs, the risk of losing the market, reducing competitiveness because the domestic and foreign markets have not opened, etc. Therefore, most enterprises are forced to implement the plan for workers to postpone labor contracts, suspend temporary, unpaid jobs to cope with the situation of the purchasing power of the market is falling deeply. The district People's Committee reported the specific situation to the provincial People's Committee. At the same time, the district deployed and informed the support policies from the government to businesses to grasp and implement. When businesses have requested, the locality will quickly solve.

Enterprises in Can Giuoc district also cannot avoid the negative effects caused by Covid-19 disease. Mr. Matt Kim - representative of Simon Vietnam Co., Ltd. (operating in Long Hau Industrial Park, Can Giuoc district) said that his company specializes in exporting handbags, due to Covid-19 disease, so most of the foreign markets are closed. About 70 percent of the company's orders were canceled, 20 percent of labor was forced to reduce. The disease situation in Vietnam is basically well controlled, the domestic market has started to reopen. However, the world market is still not ready. The company wishes to postpone the deadline for tax payment. Besides, we will also find suitable solutions and markets to restore our operations.

Along with recovering production and business, enterprises still pay attention to disease prevention

Joining hands to overcome difficulties

The Covid-19 epidemic has negatively affected many countries around the world. In Vietnam, the government has implemented many solutions to help people stabilize their lives and businesses to restore production and business situations with the aim of fighting against epidemics and developing the economy.

In Long An, the leaders of provinces, departments, branches and localities concentrate to remove the obstacles and difficulties, implement supportive solutions from the government to businesses and business households in the province. The locality joined hands with businesses to try to overcome difficulties and soon restore production and business as before.

According to representatives of SNK Infinity Hong Hoa Trading Co., Ltd. (in Long An commune, Can Giuoc district) - Tran Thi Thanh Thuy, the Covid-19 epidemic affected the market. Currently, Vietnam basically controls the disease. The government creates favorable conditions on mechanisms and policies for businesses to access, especially capital. The province also provides information on mechanisms, policies as well as procedures, focal agencies and time for businesses to know. At the same time, we also strive to overcome difficulties for normal production and business. Currently, the number of goods and orders of the company basically sold out, the workers are still working fully. However, up to June, if the epidemic situation in the world is still complicated as today, the company will have difficulty in orders. In the immediate future, the company has contracted with material providers to try to ensure production maintenance. In the long term, when the world market reopens, the company will seek and expand markets and order to develop sustainable production.

According to information from the Provincial People's Committee, Long An always accompanies and shares the difficulties of businesses affected by the Covid-19 epidemic. The provincial People's Committee has implemented many solutions and directed relevant agencies and localities to create the most favorable conditions for enterprises to operate safely. Within its authority, the province will direct agencies to quickly resolve suggestions and proposals of enterprises. The business support package under the spirit of the Government's Resolution 42/NQ-CP when it is specifically and fully guided, the provincial People's Committee will direct the concerned departments and branches to quickly implement it.

In addition, the province requires relevant departments, branches and localities to directly coordinate with enterprises to solve difficulties and create favorable conditions in their operations; help agencies understand the measures to cope with the Covid-19 disease, since then they are peace of mind to stabilize production, ensure both anti-epidemic and production development. The provincial People's Committee proposed enterprises to be proactive and autonomous in business plans, to join hands with the provincial People's Committees and local People's Committees to continue overcoming difficulties and propose specific solutions combining the State and enterprises for mutual development./.

At the national online conference with enterprises, production and business facilities, the Prime Minister - Nguyen Xuan Phuc informed that, before the difficulties of the epidemic, over the past time, the Politburo, the Secretariat, The Government and the Prime Minister have policies to support difficulties for businesses, people and the economy.

The Prime Minister stated that it was necessary to focus more on restarting Vietnam's economy, striving for GDP to achieve a growth rate of over 5 percent, rather than the IMF forecast of only 2.7 percent, and to control inflation below 4 percent. Focusing on "5 frontal armor". Firstly, we attract investment from domestic economic sectors, mainly private investment. Secondly, we attract FDI. Thirdly, we boost exports. Fourthly we promote public investment. Finally, we encourage domestic consumption with a population of nearly 100 million Vietnamese people.

The Prime Minister emphasized that he created favorable conditions, supported mechanisms and policies for businesses to recover operations, increase productivity, expand production scale in a "new normal situation" as the present. At the same time, he instructed ministries, central agencies and localities to concentrate the solutions to remove obstacles so that enterprises can overcome difficulties and stabilize production situation./.
