According to the Government Office Notice No 277/TB-VPCP on the conclusion of the Government relating to PDP VIII, the MoIT was asked to review the feasibility of thermal power projects using domestic gas while reducing the capacity of power plants using imported LNG gas by 2030 and increase wind power projects on reasonable and feasible scale.
The ministry should continue to work with investors on the implementation of coal-fired power projects which are facing obstacles in terms of capital to decide whether continuing coal power projects under current conditions or adopting other options.
In addition, it is necessary to carefully calculate the amount of electricity imports from neighboring countries, especially from Laos, to expand the scale of biomass and hydrogen power sources.
Solar power planning for 2030 should be reviewed to ensure efficiency, and avoid economic damage, especially the unreasonable calculation of electricity prices.
Previously, the MoIT had submitted a report to the cabinet on issues relating to PDP VIII.
The ministry proposed that the Government allow the deployment of solar power projects that have been planned and approved but have not yet been put into operation with a total capacity of about 2,428 MW because a delay could encounter legal risk and compensation for investors.
All violations will be strictly handled in line with State regulations, it added./.

|Planting area codes key for Vietnam's farm produce exports||Planting area codes key for Vietnam's farm produce exports|
The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) is promoting the granting and management of planting area codes to meet traceability regulations for import and export goods on the world market.

Traceability is a must-have requirement for every product, especially in export markets. One of the key factors in traceability is the planting area of materials to be assigned a code. Each planting area with a code will create more confidence for consumers.
Hoang Trung, Director of MARD's Plant Protection Department, said the granting of codes and management of coded planting areas and packing facilities are the department's top priorities in developing agricultural production and farm produce exports.
Vietnam has about 4,000 planting areas and 2,000 packing facilities for farm produce in 50 provinces and cities that have been coded. The agricultural products include fruits, rice, coffee, pepper, cashew and wood.
According to the ministry, in the first eight months of 2022, the export value of agriculture, forestry and fishery reached 36.3 billion USD, up 13.1% over the same period in 2021.
With this growth in the export value of agricultural products, the agricultural sector must increase the number of new planting regions being granted codes and maintain the management quality of the coded planting areas.
The ministry has assigned about 90% of the coded planting regions to the localities managing their quality of them since 2021.
Localities are responsible for granting the code to the new planting areas and reviewing the areas with codes. Then it would report this issue to the Plant Protection Department.
The department will review all dossiers requiring granting codes for planting areas before sending the procedures to countries importing local agricultural products to confirm the codes.
Meanwhile, the localities manage and maintain the coded planting areas and packing facilities.
The product quality of the planting areas with codes is an important issue because the import markets of Vietnam's agricultural products always inform the Plant Protection Department about those products in case the products from those coded planting areas are not quality as required.
Therefore, it is necessary to manage the quality of the agricultural production in the coded planting areas, creating the quality of the value chain from the first step in production.
An Giang province supplies a large volume of raw materials for export, such as rice, fruits and aquatic products. Therefore, developing coded planting areas of the materials and coded packaging facilities is necessary to improve the value of agricultural products, exploiting the advantages of the local agricultural products.
An Giang has planned to develop and grant codes for 1,800 planting areas for agricultural products and 30 packaging facilities in the province by 2025.
Truong Kien Tho, Deputy Director of the An Giang Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, said the province had granted codes for 252 planting areas and 21 packaging facilities, including 146 planting areas of fruit trees, one area of vegetables (chilli) and 105 areas of glutinous rice.
In addition, An Giang is promoting coordination with enterprises exporting farm produce in developing coded areas planting rice and glutinous rice, and fruits exported to high-end markets such as Australia, the US, the EU, Japan, China, New Zealand, and the Republic of Korea.
It is important to manage the quality of the coded planting areas and also grant the codes for new planting areas, Tho said.
Meanwhile, Dong Thap province targets to grant codes for all planting areas and packaging facilities by 2025, according to Le Quoc Dien, Deputy Director of Dong Thap province's Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.
All agricultural product processing and trading facilities in the province must have a traceability system to meet the requirements of export markets.
Now, Dong Thap cooperates with businesses, such as Loc Troi Group, Golden Gate JSC and Westemfarm Co, Ltd, to purchase products from codded planting areas for exporting to the US, Japan, the EU, Australia and China.
This province has also enhanced training to improve knowledge of safe production, granting and managing coded planting areas and packaging facilities, Dien said.
One of the province's key export fruits is mango, with a planting area of 14,000ha, accounting for 33.7% of the province's total fruit tree area. The province ranks second in the Mekong Delta region regarding mango output. Thanks to being granted codes for the mango planting areas, the province has gained an advantage in exporting this kind of fruit./.

Bui Sy Loi, former Vice Chairman of the National Assembly (NA)'s Committee for Social Affairs, said the labour market has been disrupted due to impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The biggest obstacle to production and business recovery is the low human resource quality, so it is necessary to develop a flexible, sustainable, integrated, and effective labour market, he said, recommending the NA perfect regulations, mechanisms, and policies so that the labour market and the economy can stay resilient to such incidents as the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pham Trong Nghia, a delegate from Lang Son province, said Vietnam is now in the recovery period, during which enterprises are expanding operations and need great labour supply since when COVID-19 broke out, a large number of workers returned to their hometowns, leading to labour shortages in the places with many major industrial parks.
Labour supply and human resource quality in key industrial parks need due attention, he added.
He said economic recovery will be accompanied by labour-related issues. Many jobs in new fields will appear after the pandemic and require workers to have new skills. Given this, workers need to undergo more training to meet new requirements.
This is the best measure for improving the quantity and quality of workers to satisfy post-pandemic economic development demand, Nghia went on.

Echoing the view, delegate Lam Van Doan from Lam Dong province cited statistics as showing that only 26% of the workforce had degrees or certificates in June 2022, which meant over 70% underwent only short-term or general training.
This is a big challenge when Vietnam is striving to boost digital transformation and integration into global value chain, he noted, pointing out that it is highly difficult to seek workers capable of meeting requirements in high-value industries.
The country needs to step up vocational training to form a skilled workforce meeting development requirements in the new context, Doan went on.
Loi also underlined the importance of social housing, which has fulfilled just 41% of the target in the housing development strategy by 2020.
Nghia held that one of the reasons for workers to return to their hometowns during the pandemic is that social security, including housing, has yet to be guaranteed. Social housing, including housing for workers, have been debated much, but the Government still needs stronger measures so that workers can settle down and focus on their jobs./.

Vietnam needs to specify target markets and control the implementation of standards in organic agricultural production to meet the needs of the domestic and foreign markets.

At a forum on the development of organic farm produce held by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) on November 21 in Ho Chi Minh City, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Tran Thanh Nam said that organic agricultural production must be associated with the development of the consumption market.
Organic products with specific characteristics must comply with strict standards and often have low yields and high costs. These products are for the high-end market segment.
According to Nam, organic agriculture development must be the right way to approach potential customers at home and abroad.
Along with reasonable planning, standards and management for the production and certification of organic agricultural products must be strictly implemented to improve the quality of Vietnam's certified organic products.
Vietnamese organic farming products are exported to about 180 countries and territories, with an export turnover of 335 million USD per year. The exported organic farming products are tea, shrimp, rice, cashew nuts, pepper, cinnamon, anise, essential oils, and spices.
The main export markets of those products include France, Denmark, Switzerland, Sweden, China, Cambodia, the US, Italy, Germany, the UK, Russia, Canada, Belgium, Thailand, Malaysia, Netherlands, Hong Kong (China) and Taiwan (China).
According to MARD, market research companies believed that the demand for organic food is on a strong upward trend and even exceeds the supply on the world market.
The scale of the global organic food market is forecast to have an annual growth rate of 14% during 2021-2026, from 227.19 billion USD in 2021 to 259.06 billion USD by 2022 and 437.36 billion USD by 2026. The regions having the fastest growth are North America and Europe.
The Government has issued Decree 109/2018/ND-CP on organic farming regulations and a scheme for developing organic agriculture from 2020 to 2030, creating a foundation for the development of Vietnam's organic agriculture industry, according to Nguyen Quoc Toan, Director of the Department of Agricultural Product Processing and Market Development.
As a result, the area of organic agricultural production is increasing rapidly and has so far reached 174,351 ha, 47% higher than that in 2016. The variety of organic farming products is also increasing though output is lower than expected.
Most localities produce organic farming products. In addition, the number of organisations and individuals doing organic agricultural production is increasing.
Organic agricultural products are mainly consumed in big cities such as Hanoi, Da Nang and HCM City at modern distribution channels such as trading centres, supermarket chains, and convenience stores. Organic farming products on the domestic market are mainly rice, vegetables, fruits, meat, tea, coffee, pepper and cashew nuts.
However, the supply still needs to meet the demand, and many certified organic farming products are for export.
Toan said that developing organic agriculture in Vietnam had faced many difficulties and obstacles and had not had significant results.
There were difficulties in awareness, production costs, input materials, human resources and technology application. Some other major areas for improvement needed more specific support mechanisms and policies to encourage investment and development for organic agriculture. The support scale was small compared to real needs.
Le Trong Kha, CEO of LeKhaMart, said that Vietnam's organic agricultural production was still fragmented, and the production area was still modest and not concentrated.
The planning and linkages among regions and enterprises in rural areas still needed to be improved. In addition, the organisation of production chains had yet to be implemented on a large scale, so the development of organic agriculture had not gained significant results.
The development of organic agricultural products follows the trend but needs to meet strict standards under the standard organic certification, however, according to Kha, the maintenance of organic standards after being certified has yet to be taken seriously.
Vietnam should have strict sanctions to create fairness and transparency in organic farming development, he said./.

Speaking at the event, Deputy Director of the Ministry of Industry and Trade's Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency Le Hoang Tai said under the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic over the past two years, the agency has actively used modern technology and launched digital transformation in trade promotion activities.
In order to help firms penetrate markets effectively, the agency and the Vietnamese trade offices abroad held over 60 sessions to offer consultancy to them, especially those related to capacity and technological transfer, he added.
Vuong Duc Anh, Chief of the Office of the Vietnam National Textile and Garment Group (Vinatex)'s Board of Directors, said in 2020 when COVID-19 broke out, Vietnam surpassed Bangladesh to become the second biggest exporter of apparel, only behind China.
Though its exports hit 40 billion USD in 2021 and profit reached a record of nearly 1.5 trillion VND, the sector has yet to make the best use of FTAs due to rules of origin and self-sufficiency of materials.
Between now and 2025, Vinatex targets becoming a one-stop supplier of yarn, fabric and end-products for knitwear, especially green products to meet demand of big retailers.
