Chairman Thao Xuan Sung speaks at the meeting.
At the session, the local FU reported many positive results in the last year to the Chairman. It appeared that farmers were very excited due to promising paddy crop. As for livestock farming, farmers also shared the same feeling as hog’s market price began to go up, pig houses would not be empty anymore. And the local aquaculture showed many good signs as well compared to the previous year. Moreover, the city also successfully zoned over 2,000 ha for vegetables farming, mostly cucumber, tomato and especially Do Son water spinach – a local signature produce known for its crispy and green feature.
After hearing the report, Chairman Thao Xuan Sung acknowledged and highly appreciated all those activities that Hai Phong City FU had done in the first half of 2018. The chairman also expressed his joy when he was informed that local grass-roots level congresses were smoothly organized.
Furthermore, the leader of VNFU demanded that Hai Phong FU should be focus on completing its professional organizational structure and investment for capital construction. On the model of Centre for Vocational Training and Farmer Support, the Chairman considered the vocational training model of FU different from those provided by the State. Since the target of the Centre was to assist farmers, Hai Phong FU should study thoroughly and refer to some efficient models in neighboring provinces such as Hai Duong and Bac Ninh, etc. in order to take full advantage of the facility, he said.
