The Government has asked the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) to promptly build projects to develop the agricultural processing industry, striving to rank among the world’s top five countries in the processing of vegetables, tubers, fruits, seafood, wood and wood products. These projects must be submitted to the Prime Minister in the fourth quarter of this year.
Meanwhile, the progress of key projects on agricultural processing should be accelerated in alignment with promoting the productivity of current processing plants to serve demand for domestic consumption and export.
The MARD is also directed to coordinate with the Ministry of Science and Technology to implement the national technology innovation fund and the national product development programme to support enterprises in improving agricultural processing and preservation technologies.
The two ministries are also assigned with building a set of criteria for evaluating the capacity of the agricultural processing industry and agricultural mechanisation.
