Mr. Phuc told a national conference in Da Lat city on Monday that more businesses should be encouraged to invest in agriculture, farm land should be used more efficiently, and high technology should be applied to current techniques, in order to improve productivity and quality. Participants underlined the importance of the link between businesses and farmers, technology application, incentives to lure investment in agriculture, market information sharing, and cultivation land planning. 

“Vietnam’s agriculture has enormous potential and opportunities. Vietnam should be among the top 15 most advanced countries in agriculture and the top 10 countries in farm produce processing in the world, within the next decade.
