Vietnam pushes towards organic agriculture production


Vietnam's Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung signed off on the 2020 – 2030 Organic Agriculture Development Project, which aims to boost organic aquaculture production in the country, the Vietnam News Agency reported.


Vietnam will convert more land towards organic aquaculture production with a goal by 2025 for organic production to account for 0.5% - 1.5% of total agricultural land area.


As part of the project, the government will support efforts to boost organic agricultural production regions, diversify the country's organic production, apply technological advances, develop certification organisations and grow the organic product consumption, processing and exports.
