Especially in the coming time, the Provincial FU must advise or plan to submit to Vinh Long Provincial People's Committee to implement some programs. For example, the OCOP product connection program, the program to trace the origin of agricultural products, etc.
In terms of propaganda, the FU must do it at all levels, paying attention to the development of members, expanding to other areas. people who sympathize with the FU, people who love agriculture, students, scientists, at the same time, improve the quality of collective groups
