New strategy aims at sustainable agricultural development

Updated: 13:30’ - 08/02/2022
A national strategy on sustainable agricultural and rural development for the 2021-30 period, with a vision to 2050, has been recently issued.

The Strategy puts forth the general goals of developing cash crop cultivation based on advantages of each locality toward high productivity, quality, effectiveness, sustainability, and competitiveness; firmly guaranteeing national food security; and maintaining socio-economic stability, preventing and controlling natural disasters and epidemics, responding to climate change, and fulfilling the country’s international commitments on greenhouse gas emission reduction.

The strategy also aims to improve income, life quality, role, and stature of agricultural stakeholders; create non-agricultural jobs to help rural residents alleviate poverty and ensure equal development opportunities among the regions; comprehensively develop rural areas; uphold and bring into play the national cultural identity; and combine agricultural and rural development with new-style countryside building.

Among the detailed targets for 2030, the agriculture-forestry-fisheries sector is expected to achieve a growth rate of 2.5-3 percent, an increase of 5.5-6 percent in productivity, and an export rise of 5-6 percent each year on average.

The Strategy also looks to raise rural residents’ income by 2.5-3 times the 2020’s figure, bring down the multidimensional index-based poverty rate by 1-1.5 percent annually, reduce the proportion of agricultural workers to less than 20 percent of the total workforce, and increase the rate of trained agricultural workers to over 70 percent.

Ninety percent of communes nationwide will be recognized as meeting new-style countryside criteria where eco-friendly agricultural practices adapted to climate change will be applied and greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced by 10 percent compared to the 2020’s figure.- (VLLF)
