Vietnam develops high-tech agriculture

“Science and technology applications in agricultural production need the engagement of not only the state and scientific research organisations, but also the participation of farmers and businesses. In fact, businesses play a growing role in raising the sector’s technology level while increasing farmers’ access to hi-tech applications,” Tuan said, adding that businesses’ engagement in agriculture could help tackle problems with capital and output markets for agricultural products.

Thus far, a number of cities and provinces have become desirable destinations for hi-tech agricultural businesses, such as Ho Chi Minh City, Lam Dong, Vinh Phuc, and Quang Ninh.

According to Deputy Chairman  of the Quang Ninh People’s Committee Dang Huy Hau, in light of the agricultural sector’s five-year restructuring plan with a vision to 2030, science and technology will lay the groundwork to create breakthroughs in development. This is a signal for the participation of businesses from assorted economic sectors to enter into the restructuring process. These businesses will be a central factor in the process, creating spill-over effects linking farmers and from there spurring production.

Vietnam has tremendous potential for hi-tech agricultural development, which explains why many leading local groups such as Vinamilk, TH True Milk, and Duc Long Gia Lai have all ventured into the sector. In fact, according to Tuan, a slew of foreign investors have made forays into Vietnamese agriculture.

Under this model, the state sets out standards and implements concrete policies to encourage businesses to use technological advances in agriculture. The government also plans agricultural production zones and clarifies its policies for farmers and businesses. Cities and provinces can work closely with businesses during project implementation to clear space, convince local residents to support businesses, and establish hotline channels to help firms tackle impediments.
