The goals were set in Government Directive No25/CT-TTg, setting out several tasks and solutions to develop the processing industry of agro-forestry-fishery products and mechanization of agricultural production issued this week.

The directive has also set a target for Vietnam to become a deep processing and logistics center of the global agricultural trade.

Although in recent years, the mechanization of agriculture and processing industry has achieved remarkable achievements, the development has not matched the inherent potential of the agricultural sector and strengths of many localities, stated the directive.

The Prime Minister requested ministers, heads of ministerial-level agencies, heads of government-attached agencies, and chairs of people's committees in localities to work on their assigned functions and tasks to focus on directing, implementing orientations on promoting the development of processing industry and agricultural mechanization.

The Prime Minister asked the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) to review previously promulgated plans related to agricultural mechanization and processing industry to integrate into national sector planning, regional planning, provincial planning; coordinate with ministries, sectors and localities in formulating and submitting for approval national plans in the 2021-2030 period as assigned according to the Law on Planning, including the content of development of agricultural mechanization and processing industry.

The MARD was specifically requested to promptly build projects to develop the agricultural processing industry, striving to rank among the world’s top five countries in the processing of vegetables, tubers, fruits, seafood, wood and wood products. These projects must be submitted to the Prime Minister in the fourth quarter of this year.

Meanwhile, the progress of key projects in agricultural processing should be accelerated in alignment with promoting the productivity of current processing plants to serve the demand for domestic consumption and export.

The MARD is also directed to coordinate with the Ministry of Science and Technology to implement the national technology innovation fund and the national product development program to support enterprises in improving agricultural processing and preservation technologies.

The two ministries are also assigned to build a set of criteria for evaluating the capacity of the agricultural processing industry and agricultural mechanization.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade will work with MARD to implement solutions to make good use of opportunities from signed free trade agreements, especially the European Union-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), for processed agricultural products.

The Ministry of Planning and Investment will balance and allocate investment capital for the development of a project on three branches of processing vegetables-fruits, aquatic products, timber and wood products after being approved by competent authorities in accordance with the Law on Public Investment and in accordance with the medium and annual public investment plan.
