Long An transforms plants and animals vigorously after 3 years of developing hi-tech agriculture
Long An Provincial Party Committee has just held an online conference to evaluate the results after 3 years of implementing the High-tech Agricultural Development Program in association with restructuring agriculture.
Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee - Pham Van Ranh highly appreciated the achievements after 3 years of implementing the program
Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee, Chairman of the Provincial People's Council - Pham Van Ranh; Deputy Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee, Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can co-chaired the conference.
After 3 years of implementation, the High-tech agricultural development program has achieved initial results. In particular, the propaganda has contributed to positively change the awareness of cadres, civil servants and people.
Many highly effective models have been replicated. Promotion of trade investment and food safety monitoring has been strengthened to confirm products in safe food supply chains. Many contracts to supply clean products to distributors inside and outside the province have been signed, contributing to the consumption of products for farmers.
After 3 years of implementation, the High-tech agricultural development program has achieved initial results
The project has implemented many models of advanced technology in the production of over 18,500 hectares (15,075 hectares of rice, 1,476 hectares of vegetables, 2,077 hectares of dragon fruits). Up to now, 43 cooperatives and 151 cooperative groups have been established in the areas where the project has been implemented and 16 pilot cooperatives have been built.
In addition, trade promotion, dialogue and support of cooperative groups, cooperatives and businesses in the production area have been well implemented, contributing to solving many difficulties and obstacles. The province has established 12 safe food supply chains on vegetables, chicken, rice, and pork; 14 locations that sell safe food in districts and Tan An city. By the end of 2019, the province plans to build 13 more locations selling safe food. For the beef cattle raising area, the province has built 2 cooperatives and 15 cooperative groups, 10 models of high-tech applications and supported 181 cows.
According to the Director of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development - Nguyen Thanh Truyen, the project has faced many difficulties. To be more specific, the clean land fund for attracting investment has been insufficient. Some high-tech application models have been initially effective, but farmers have faced difficulties in reciprocal capital for replication. Some cooperatives and cooperatives have been still weak in both human resources and finance. The connection between production and product consumption in some models has been limited. The technical infrastructure for agricultural production has been focused on investment but many localities have not yet met the requirements, etc.
Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can gives a speech at the conference
Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can said: "Farmers play a key role in the implementation of the High-tech agricultural development program in association with restructuring agriculture. Enterprises are the venue in connecting product consumption. Therefore, in order to implement the project effectively, it is necessary to deeply and broadly propagate to raise awareness for people to participate in cooperatives and cooperative groups as well as comply with cooperative regulations. Therefore, people have produced effectively and no longer depended on the support of the State".
Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee, Chairman of the Provincial People's Council - Pham Van Ranh highly appreciated the achievements after 3 years of implementing the Program, contributing to the transformation of plants and animals vigorously in the province.
In the coming time, he asked the branches and local authorities to intensify the propaganda of Resolution 08 of the Provincial Party Committee on developing high-tech applications associated with agricultural restructuring; regularly hold dialogues with businesses and cooperatives to solve difficulties; strive to complete the construction of 4 typical cooperatives to replicate the program by the end of 2019; focus on trade promotion for the province's key agricultural products; and effectively implement mechanisms and policies to support the implementation of the project./.
