The “Tam Nong” movement was launched ten years ago with the aim of boosting the national industrialization and modernization of agriculture and the countryside and improving the peasants’ life, thus making an important contribution to accelerating the social and economic development nationwide.
However, there are still a lot of weaknesses and shortcomings in the movement with the uneven rural economic development and poor infrastructure.
Concluding the conference, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said that investment in agricultural production is still rather low, whereas the scientific and technological advances are yet to be fully applied in agricultural production and farming work is still carried out in a small and fragmented scale. So this is the task of the entire political system and the whole society to resolve the agricultural, peasant and rural problems./.
