NDO – Nearly 160 high quality agricultural products and 25 outstanding companies were honoured at a ceremony in Hanoi on November 28 by the Vietnam Farmers' Association (VFA).

Speaking at the meeting, Politburo member, Secretary of Party Central Committee (PCC) and Head of PCC Economic Commission Nguyen Van Binh, said that these are individuals and organisations which have made significant contributions towards raising the value of products and also promoting the sustainable development of these products.

The Party and State will continue to mobilise their resources to develop rural areas, while creating favourable conditions for businesses to invest in socio-economic infrastructure and production in disadvantaged areas, as well as to improve the competitiveness of Vietnam’s agricultural products and promote agricultural restructuring and the construction of new-style rural areas, he noted.

According to the VFA President Lai Xuan Mon, the programme was launched in 63 provinces and cities, with over 180 agricultural products being nominated.

The organising committee, in co-ordination with local agencies and agricultural experts, selected 157 high-quality products to be honoured at the ceremony, he added.

Mon noted that the ceremony is also an opportunity to encourage and recognise businessmen and entrepreneurs who are actively supporting farmers in improving productivity, quality, as well as effective product consumption with high value.
