Speaking at the event, Mr. Nguyen Hong Linh emphasized that the conference on investment promotion in high-tech agriculture demonstrates the great determination of Ba Ria - Vung Tau province to boost agricultural development. He suggested that enterprises investing in agriculture should apply high technology since the provincial authority does not accept traditional agriculture with high level of land use and water consumption but low productivity. In addition, such enterprises should also develop a close agricultural production chain from production to distribution. After successful application, these enterprises need to guide the farmers in the province to replicate the production model and develop large-scale production areas to meet the market demands, thus the prosperity of businesses will go together with the prosperity of farmers.
