The high-tech agricultural production model is an important direction of Vietnam’s agriculture, bringing high value of farm produce and raising income for farmers, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said.

The PM made the statement while visiting the Phong Thuy farm produce trade and production company in Lien Nghia township, Duc Trong district, the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong, on July 29.
The PM asked the company’s leaders to continue expanding production and market while building its trade mark, thereby helping domestic consumers know the company’s products and use safe farm produce.
The Phong Thuy company, where a pilot farm produce assorting system is being applied, has a 55ha farm with an annual output of 5,000 tonnes of vegetables. The farm includes production areas for hydroponic vegetables and safe vegetables under Vietgap standards, and other facilities for harvesting and assorting vegetables before distribution.
The Prime Minister’s visit was made ahead of a national conference on promoting businesses to invest in agriculture scheduled for July 30 in Lam Dong province. The event chaired by the PM is expected to see the participation of 600 delegates from ministries, sectors and international organisations as well as domestic and foreign firms.
