Hai Phong (VNA) – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said high-technology and organic farming would be crucial for the development of Vietnamese agriculture when touring Vingroup’s high-technology agricultural project in Tam Da commune, northern Hai Phong city on October 5.

The 189 billion VND Hai Phong project is among 12 farms developed by Vingroup’s subsidiary VinEco across the country growing safe vegetables.

The farm, covering 46ha, including an open-air area of over 28 ha, and a glasshouse area of 10.7 ha, became operational early this year, growing 14 species of vegetables using no pesticides with an average output of 250 tonnes per month.

The PM praised the model for increasing labour productivity and supplying the market with safe products.

The leader also lauded the efficient coordination between the company and local farmers, suggesting that it should be stepped up during rural area construction.

He reminded project insiders to observe their commitments, especially those pertaining to food safety, to ensure the quality of products.

VinEco should provide employment opportunities for those people who were relocated for the project to enable them to earn substantial, stable incomes, the PM noted.
