The seventh congress will set forth 14 criteria on farmers’ emulation movement during 2018-2023. The popularisation of the Party and State’s policies and regulations, as well as the VFU’s resolution for all farmers, is the important target.

The VFU also hopes to have at least 60 percent of its members with Internet access, 100 percent of the union’s officers receiving training in agricultural cultivation techniques, and all of the VFU’s chapters organizing consulting activities and vocational training for local farmers.

During 2013-2018, the union admitted nearly 2.2 million members, raising the total membership to 10.2 million people. Some 130,000 training courses and conferences were organized, and over 14,000 production models which applied advanced technologies were successfully transferred to the farming community.
