Hanoi (VNA) – The 10-year implementation of the 10th Party Central Committee’s resolution on agriculture, farmers and rural areas will be reviewed at a national online conference and exhibition slated for November 26 and 27 at the My Dinh National Conference Hall in Hanoi.

In announcing the events at a press conference on November 21, the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission, one of the organizers, said the event aims to assess the achievements and outstanding shortcomings and problems during the implementation of the resolution, along with identifying their causes and drawing lessons, so as to work out viewpoints and policies for the development of agriculture, farmers and rural areas in the coming period.

The national online conference, which links all 63 provinces and centrally-run cities in the country, will comprise several thematic symposiums.

A symposium on sustainable development of agriculture and rural areas will gather business representatives and farmers to seek directions for developing a modern and  sustainable agriculture based on experience of some other countries.

Another symposium on the application of scientific-technological advances in industrialization and modernisation of agriculture and rural development will bring together international and domestic experts. They will present hi-tech agricultural models and latest technological solutions for agricultural processing. It is also an opportunity for delegates to discuss with policymakers policies and measures to promote the research and application of scientific and technological advances in agriculture and rural development.

 There will also be a symposium on the investment potential and development prospect of the agricultural commodity market in Vietnam in the context of international integration. Issues to be tabled include the State’s incentives and credit policies for agriculture, farmers and rural areas. Leading Vietnamese experts are expected to present their assessment and analysis on opportunities and directions for development for agriculture businesses.

Around 500 delegates will attend the online conference in Hanoi and between 50 - 100 others will join the event from each province and centrally-run cities.
