Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


HA NOI — Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has called on the Viet Nam Farmers Association to roll out rural development policies during 2011-20.

The move aims to promote the association's role in establishing new rural areas, developing agriculture production and creating opportunities for farmers to contribute to and benefit from national industrialisation and modernisation.

Viet Nam Farmers Association Vice Chairman Nguyen Duy Luong said that "Until recently the association had operated as a political and social organisation which kept it from taking part in economic activities."

The association recently appealed to the Prime Minister to let it take part in policies to improve the role of farmers in the national industrialisation and modernisation process, he said.

As part of the new policies, the association plans to invest and upgrade 19 vocational training and support centres throughout provinces and cities and annually build 4-5 new centres where farmers could undergo three-month courses on farming and breeding.

Dung called on the National Farmer Support Fund to support the association in its work.

As scheduled, the fund will receive a total amount of VND300 billion (US$14.5 million) as part of the national budget this year.

The fund will continue receiving support from the national budget during the 2012-20 period each year.

The People's Committees of provinces and cities have been called upon to provide annual funds to the National Farmer Support Fund in support of farmers.

The association plans to co-operate with the ministries of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, Agriculture and Rural Development and Industry and Trade in order to develop new operational models on agriculture production and product consumption. — VNS
