Hanoi (VNA) – The 15th National Assembly discussed investment policy for the National Target Programme
on New-style Rural Development for the 2021-2025 period during its ongoing first
session in Hanoi on July 27.
At the event, Minister of Agriculture and
Rural Development Le Minh Hoan said the programme must cover all 63 cities and
provinces, making rural areas worth-living places.
Apart from upgrading infrastructure and
improving people’s lives, he called for further attention to improving their income
and life quality via new farming models, circular and smart agriculture.
The programme sets agriculture, farmers and
rural areas as three indispensable factors and the restructuring of agriculture
creates a driving force to build new-style rural areas.
Additionally, improving knowledge of farmers,
rural environment and culture, gender equality, and nutrition for rural
residents also contribute to the success of the effort, he said.
The minister also highlighted leadership at
the grassroot level as a factor decisive to the success of the programme.
Therefore, he proposed offering training courses to communal-level leaders to
help them access new values in the programme./.
