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./.

Domestic food and beverage industry has development potentialDomestic food and beverage industry has development potential
The domestic food and beverage market has great potential for development despite the difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, according to experts.

According to a survey of Vietnam Report, 50 percent of customers have spent more on foods boosting immune system and clean foods due to the COVID-19 (Photo: baodautu.vn)

Food and beverages are in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) category. For many years, this has always been one of the important economic sectors with great potential for development, according to the Vietnam Report 2020.

The food and beverage market's growth rate is forecasted to reach from 5-6 percent annually in 2020-2025.

Despite suffering negative impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, the food and beverage industry in Vietnam also has many strong growth opportunities. At present, more and more consumers pay attention to nutritional foods of plant origin, organic foods or food with healthy ingredients.

A survey conducted by Vietnam Report at the end of 2020 showed due to COVID-19, half of customers have spent more on foods boosting their immune system and clean foods. Meanwhile, 63.7 percent of customers have cut spending on alcohol and beer. Therefore, businesses in this industry must adjust their production to suit demand.

Food businesses have to increase their production capacity by about 30 percent, while beverage businesses must reduce their production to lower than 80 percent compared to before the pandemic.

Besides that, Vu Dang Vinh, general director of the Vietnam Assessment Report Joint Stock Company, said COVID-19 has forced nearly 70 percent of food and beverage businesses to focus on the digital transformation for survival and development, reported the Vietnam News Agency.

Many businesses have built modern technology processes in production and management. Food and beverage companies have also sped up investment activities to renovate the distribution system and adjust the proportion between traditional and modern trading channels. They develop applications to enhance the customer experience when shopping and innovate packaging design, eco-branding and product line development.

Nguyen Dang Quang, chairman of Masan Group, said the COVID-19 pandemic is a good opportunity to promote e-commerce.

The group is building plans to attract more and more people to online shopping, he said.

Vinh said food and beverage businesses need to focus on strategies such as revenue growth, market development, promotion of research and improving product quality. They should also diversify supply sources with priority for domestic suppliers and develop online distribution channels on e-commerce platforms.

According to experts in the food and beverage industry, the stable macroeconomy and commitments in free trade agreements signed between Vietnam and its partners such as the European Union-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) and the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) would bring export opportunities and more foreign investment. They would promote the transfer of technology and technological advancement in the industry.

Along with that, the food and beverage companies need to improve their competitiveness and increase investment in infrastructure systems and modernisation of production processes and corporate governance./.

Health programme helps Mekong’s poor  Health programme helps Mekong’s poor 
More than 600,000 people who live on the margins of poverty have been financially supported to buy voluntary health insurance over the last four years under a major healthcare project in the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta.

Project director Le Thi Thanh said at an evaluation conference held last week in Can Tho City that the number accounted for 81.42 per cent of the total number of people living near the poverty line in the region.

The first-ever project to offer healthcare support for Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta residents was developed by the Ministry of Health, with a total investment capital of US$85 million sourced from Official Development Assistance (ODA) funds.

The five-year project aims to offer financial support for 13 provinces in the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta so that each locality would be able to pay partial payment of hospital fees for people living near the poverty line in the region.

The project also targets better healthcare facilities and services in the region by next year.

In the nine Delta provinces of Ca Mau, Bac Lieu, An Giang, Can Tho, Kien Giang, Long An, Soc Trang, Tien Giang and Tra Vinh, the project had been able to ensure all residents in the category were able to buy voluntary health insurance, Thanh said.

Vietnamese citizens earning less than VND200,000 (US$10) per person per month in rural areas and less than VND260,000 ($13) per month per person in urban areas are considered poor.

The project has also helped nearly 17,000 patients in financial difficulties pay their treatment fees at an average of about VND1 million per person.

More than 1,300 healthcare personnel with doctorate and masters degrees as well as specialist doctors in the 13 delta provinces received further training under the project.

General hospitals at the provincial level and health centres in the region were able to acquire modern equipment and other facilities, Thanh said at the meeting.

This year, the project seeks to support over 50 per cent of people living near the poverty line in Hau Giang, Ben Tre, Vinh Long and Dong Thap provinces buy voluntary health insurance.

It will also invest in upgrading 11 general hospitals at the provincial level, and develop a system to supervise epidemics by applying IT solutions at many localities.

The World Bank, which co-hosted the conference with the Health Ministry, said that this project played a very important part in supporting Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta provinces develop policies to provide quality medical examinations and treatment to poor people and those living near the poverty line.

The rate of people living near poverty line in Vinh Long, Dong Thap and Hau Giang provinces who buy voluntary health insurance, is still low at present, according to the bank.

All students (from grade one to university) and people who are working for state or non-state companies are compulsorily required to have health insurance.

Other citizens have the option to purchase health insurance on their own volition.

2021 GDP growth may reach 6.72 percent in best-case scenario: Conference2021 GDP growth may reach 6.72 percent in best-case scenario: Conference
Vietnam’s economic growth is projected at 6.17 percent in 2021 in a base-line scenario and may even reach 6.72 percent in the best-case scenario, heard a conference held in Hanoi on January 20.

Năm 2021 tăng trưởng GDP kinh tế có thể đạt tốt nhất.jpg

An overview of the conference (Photo: VNA)

Co-hosted by the UN Development Programme and the Ministry of Planning and Investment's National Centre for Socio-economic Information and Forecasting (NCIF),  the "Vietnam's Economy in the Medium Term 2021 - 2025: Recovery and Growth Accelerates" conference brought together a large number of economists, business leaders, and representatives of international organisations and business associations to discuss the outlook for Vietnam's economy over the next five years and the actions needed to turn the expected rebound from COVID-19 into a sustainable economic recovery.

In his opening remarks, Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment Tran Quoc Phuong said the pandemic has presented both challenges and opportunities to Vietnam during the 2021-2025 period. 

There have been many emerging trends reshaping international financial flows, trade, and investment, he noted, adding that the pandemic has also triggered a shift in global supply chains, creating challenges and opportunities for any economic rebound in the long run.

It is especially significant for the country to take advantage of new opportunities to revive its economy this year and create breakthroughs over the next five years in order to meet the goals set by the Party and the State, he said.

UNDP Resident Representative in Vietnam Caitlin Wiesen said Vietnam was one of only a few countries in the world to post GDP growth in 2020, of 2.91 percent, and for the first time it was ranked by the UNDP as among the High Human Development Group, with growth of 46 percent in its Human Development Index (HDI) during the 1990-2019 period, one of the most rapid transitions to high human development in history.

She went on to say that Vietnam will launch a new five-year Socio-Economic Development Plan and ten-year Socio-Economic Development Strategy that will establish a broad vision for economic recovery in the short term, in the context of continuing global uncertainty.

The strategic policy choices Vietnam makes will define its ability to turn the COVID-19 rebound into a bold recovery in 2021 and beyond. Equally, it will determine the ability of the country to accelerate policies to achieve the medium-term aspirations of realizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and attaining high-middle income country status by 2030, she added. 

Two scenarios for Vietnam's economic growth this year were introduced at the conference. According to NCIF Deputy Director Dr Dang Duc Anh, the base-line scenario forecasts the economy to grow at about 6.17 percent and CPI to stand at 3.8 percent if the global economy rebounds and COVID-19 is gradually brought under control.

In the best-case scenario, GDP growth will reach 6.72 percent and CPI around 4.2 percent if the global economy recovers at a pace faster than expected./.

Vietnam’s growth outlook to depend on authorities’ response to new outbreak: WBVietnam’s growth outlook to depend on authorities’ response to new outbreak: WB
Vietnam’s growth prospects will depend on how well and how quickly the authorities will bring the new coronavirus outbreak under control and how quickly international and national vaccinations will proceed, according to the World Bank (WB).

In its Vietnam Macro Monitoring report issued earlier this month, the WB said January's industrial production index jumped by 24.5 percent year on year, the highest growth rate since the beginning of 2019. Merchandise exports and imports respectively grew 51.8 percent and 41.8 percent from the same period last year.

The preliminary January goods trade surplus is estimated at 1.1 billion USD. Exports to the US and China continued the robust growth of 2020 while those to the EU, ASEAN, Japan and the Republic of Korea (RoK) bounced back strongly. Similarly, imports from the RoK, ASEAN and the US joined those from China, Japan and the EU to stay in expansionary territory.

In the first month of 2021, the Government spent a total of 99.6 trillion VND, which is slightly, 1 percent, higher than a year ago. Public investment reached 15 trillion VND, making the disbursement rate of 3.25 percent.

However, the WB added, while Vietnam's economy has been extremely resilient to the COVID-19 crisis, preliminary results from the COVID-19 World Bank high frequency household survey of January show that almost half of households still reported lower household income than the year before. About 9 percent of households took loans and 15 percent reduced their consumption.

If persistent, this prudent behaviour will negatively affect aggregate domestic demand in the future, according to the bank.

It held that growth prospects for 2021 will be affected by how well and how quickly the authorities will bring the new outbreak under control and how quickly international and national vaccinations will proceed. 

If the crisis lingers, the authorities may consider further monetary and fiscal support. Yet, special attention will have to be given to the fiscal space, the health of the financial sector and possible social effects as lasting loss of income among some households may create new inequalities and tensions, the report noted.

Jacques Morisset, WB Lead Economist for Vietnam, said the WB expects with many positive signs like the considerable progress in vaccine development and gradually resumed trading activities, the country can obtain growth of 6 percent in 2021./.
