The agricultural sector of HCM City, Vietnam’s southern economic hub, is calling for assistance from Japanese enterprises to revolutionise both its farming method and product quality.
At a cooperation forum on April 3 on the application of high technology in agriculture in HCM City, the Agricultural Hi-Tech Agriculture Park (AHTP) management introduced twelve Japanese enterprises to the city’s agricultural development strategy and cooperation opportunities in the sector.
They discussed technology transfer and the production of quality products for both domestic consumption and export to Japan.
Dinh Manh Hiep, director of the Agricultural Hi-Tech Park, said the park and three Japanese partners have been discussing cooperation on a hi-tech farming demonstration model’ project at the park.
When completed, the project will serve as a model for other provinces and cities to study Japan’s standards and requirements for farm produce, Hiep said.
Under its agricultural development orientation to 2020, HCM City is working on two key projects: “Linking the AHTP to the city’s agricultural areas,” and “Linking district-level AHTPs to create a supply chain of some main agro-products.”
