Apart from appreciating remarkable progresses and achievements recorded in the period, the PB pointed out to realities, including low growth rate of agriculture and low incomes of farmers, poor competitiveness of farm produce, relatively high rate of poor households and unskilled farmers, which need to be addressed.
It urged all authorities and local administrations to step up public communication to improve awareness about importance of the three domains, quality of master plans aiming to associate industrialization and modernization with agricultural restructuring increase added value of farm produce, and promote industrial and service activities and technology transfer in rural activities.
It also assigned related sectors and localities to promulgate and fully guide practical mechanisms and policies mentioned in the Resolution and the Government’s Program of Action, especially those concerning land, investment, taxation, insurance for crops and farm produce, infrastructure construction in rural areas and vocational training for farmers and incentives for the three domains.-
