H?i D??ng calls for hi-tech agricultural investment
The northern province of H?i D??ng will create favourable conditions and offer preferential policies for businesses investing in high-tech agriculture, post-harvest preservation, slaughterhouse construction and production chain development, provincial authorities said.
The Red River Delta province wants to encourage investors to set up modern agricultural practices that use state-of-the-art technologies and develop high-quality, competitive products.
Nguy?n M?nh Hi?n, secretary of the provincial Party Committee, said that businesses will get support in terms of credit, land rent, infrastructure development and administrative procedures.
At an agricultural investment promotion conference held in H?i D??ng on Sunday, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguy?n Xuân C??ng suggested that the province pay attention to providing training and encouraging farmers to connect with others to form agricultural businesses.
Identifying strategic products and outlining transparent, favourable policies for investors will help the local agricultural sector to improve and progress to a new stage of development, C??ng advised.
The province has around 11,700 enterprises, but of these, only 1,600 have invested in agriculture. The total investment in local agriculture is valued at around VN?15 trillion (US$658.5 million), most of it focused on farm produce processing, animal-based food products and production linkages. — VNS
