Developing 8 focal centers for agriculture in the Mekong Delta

Mekong Delta will focus on developing eight agricultural hubs in areas with favorable conditions for infrastructure and water resources in 2025

By 2025, focus on developing 8 focal centers for agriculture in areas with favorable conditions for infrastructure and water sources, including: General focal centers in Can Tho city associated with service development logistics in Hau Giang, to support Can Tho City to perform its role as the regional logistics center; building 7 focal centers with the function of collecting, classifying and processing agricultural products. Specifically, there are 2 focal centers in An Giang and Dong Thap associated with freshwater ecological zones; 3 focal centers in Kien Giang, Ca Mau and Soc Trang associated with seafood; 2 focal centers in Tien Giang, Ben Tre associated with fruits and vegetables.

In the period up to 2030, complete the construction of a system of focal centers identified in the regional planning, associated with the investment process of synchronous construction of transport and irrigation infrastructure. At the same time, planning and developing agro-industrial towns in association with the focal centers of agriculture and strengthening links with the urban system, playing the central role of regions and sub-regions, in order to promote the training, technology transfer in agricultural production and promotion of trade, logistics services, market connection of agricultural products.

Effectively build and develop key material areas, focusing on the process of land accumulation to ensure long-term and sustainable service for the region's agro-fishery processing establishments. In addition, building a concentrated raw material area to facilitate product traceability, meeting the requirements of domestic and international markets; promote synchronous mechanization of production stages, apply science and technology to minimize production costs, agricultural materials and gradually reduce labor in agriculture. Closely combine the development of raw material areas with the development roadmap of focal centers for agriculture and investment in synchronous construction of transport infrastructure and logistics services.

To step up the application of science - technology in agriculture; improve the quality of agriculture, forestry and fishery in the Mekong Delta. Specifically, developing and implementing a program on research, training and application of science and technology in the Mekong Delta region, a pilot program on smart, sustainable and climate change agricultural models. Climate change in the Mekong Delta, Blockchain application program in agriculture in the Mekong Delta.
