Farming economy spurs

   5/18/2006

After six years (from February 2000) implementing the Resolution of the Government on development of farming economy, farms have grown rapidly quantitatively and diversively in production forms, which have contributed considerably to job creation and poverty reduction in rural areas. Presently, there are nearly 150,000 farms covering an area of more than 900,000 ha in Vietnam. Number of farms increases approximately 6% annually. Farming economy is developed under different types such as agricultural cultivation farms accounting for 55.3%, husbandry farms accounting for 10.3%; aquaculture farms representing 27.3%; forestry 2.2% and integrated production and business farms accounting for 6.9%. Development of farming economy has created tens of thousands jobs contributing to reducing pressure caused by unemployment and underemployment in rural areas. Farming economy has contributed to effective exploitation of the water surface, wild land, inshore and coastal areas, etc, bringing advantages of each locality into full play and developing concentrated production zones. Development of farming economy, however, are not linked with projection, and land use of each locality. Most of farms are established spontaneously which are lacking of inter-linkage. Therefore, potential of irrigation, transportation, electricity, communication and market system has not been made full use of. In order to develop farming economy in a sustainable and effective orientation, in the time to come, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development will continue to undertake unified implementation of some solutions on land projection; human resource development; encouraging households, individuals and organizations of all economic sectors to invest more in development of farming economy; encouraging enterprises to sign product consuming contracts for production farms; planning and constructing rural markets and transaction centers in service of agricultural product consumption in those areas where a large number of farms are located. The State will continue to invest in development of bio-technology to develop high quality seedlings and products and to research and apply advanced technology in cultivation, processing and preservation of agricultural products, firstly for vegetables and fruits produced in specialized cultivation areas; encouraging cooperation in application of advanced technology in agriculture.
