Head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Mass Mobilization Truong Thi Mai stressed the need to motivate farmers nationwide to boost their innovation and contribute further to creating the foundation for an advanced and modern agriculture. Ms. Mai said: "Agencies and organizations at all levels should create favorable conditions for farmers to access advanced technology, develop cooperative models, replicate production business models, and combine agriculture with the processing industry and value chain export markets. Farmers’ associations should always renew their operations, ensure the legitimate rights of farmers, and connect farmers with the Party and State."
