Vietnam expected to be among the world’s top 15 agricultural countries by 2030

Updated: 15:29’ - 30/06/2020
Vietnam is expected to be among 15 most developed agricultural countries in the world, with agricultural product processing making top 10, by 2030.

The goals are set in Prime Minister Directive 25 dated June 4, prescribing several tasks and solutions to develop the agro-forestry-fishery product processing industry and mechanization of agricultural production.

 

The Directive also sets a target for Vietnam to become a deep-processing and logistics center serving global agricultural product trading.

To achieve the above targets, the Prime Minister requests ministers, heads of ministerial-level agencies and government-attached agencies, and chairpersons of local People’s Committees to focus on directing and realizing orientations for promotion of development of processing industries and agricultural mechanization.

Specifically, they are tasked to intensify agricultural restructuring toward mass production associated with processing and markets; develop large-scale fields with comprehensive agricultural mechanization at all stages of the agricultural value chain.

Meanwhile, a complete logistics system will be formed and developed in order to improve value and competitiveness of Vietnamese farm produce.

The Directive requests the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) to work out and submit to the Prime Minister in the last quarter of this year schemes on development of three agricultural processing sectors for vegetables, aquatic products, and wood and wood products, striving to rank among the world’s top five countries in the processing of these products.

The ministry will also have to coordinate with related agencies in guiding and urging localities to speed up the progress of key projects on agricultural product processing and increase capacity of processing plants in concentrated material zones to meet demands of domestic and foreign markets.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade will coordinate with the MARD in devising solutions to ensure supply of input materials of agricultural production and processing, and seize opportunities brought about by free trade agreements such as the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) with regard to processed agricultural products.

The two ministries are also assigned to jointly establish criteria for evaluating capacity of agricultural product processing industry and agricultural mechanization.- (VLLF)
