At the session, VNFU Chairman Thao Xuan Sung was very glad to welcome the delagtion of Agerigna Group while Vietnamese people were still celebrating the historic achievement of Vietnam national U23 football team led by the South Korean coach Park Hang-seo at the 2018 AFC Championship. Chairman Thao Xuan Thung stated: “Vietnam has long-established ties with South Korea. It’s our pleasure to cooperate with South Korea, including Agerigna Group in support for Vietnam farmers and rural area.”
According to Chairman Thao Xuan Sung, the strength of South Korea agriculture is the application of technology, especially that of hi-tech in order to create safe, productive and high-quality produce. On the other hand, the strength of Vietnamese farmers is that they are smart and hard-working. However, compared to South Korea in particular and the world in general, Vietnamese farmers are still very behind in access to IT, technology in agricultural production. Therefore, the cooperation between VNFU and Agerigna Group in support for farmers to access to technology is absolutely practical and beneficial.
Along the session, Chairman Thao Xuan Sung agreed on three matters about the cooperation between VNFU and Agerigna Group. ‘I highly appreciate the collaboration between our two parties to develop “IT Applying Center for connecting farmers – Nong Talk.” This application will provide information on weather forecast, Vietnam’s agricultural production and consumption markets. This wil definitely be helpful to Vietnamese farmers.'
Speaking at the session, Agerigna Group Chairman Im Byoung Min congratulated Thao on his new position – Chairman of VNFU. Chairman Im assured that with years of experience and resources in IT and personnel network, Agerigna Group was very committed to creating a good cooperation with VNFU in support for Vietnamese farmers to promote the application of advanced technology to agricultural production.
