Hanoi's workshop promoting high-tech agricultural investment

At a workshop held on October 25, Hanoi introduced businesses to the city’s preferential policies for the agricultural sector, especially hi-tech agriculture, to promote investment in the capital.

Nguyen Thi Thoa, head of the Plantation Division under the Hanoi Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, admitted that Hanoi has no zones dedicated to hi-tech agricultural production.

The city is building a 96.6-hectare hi-tech agricultural zone in Dong Anh district and is planning to build some high-tech pig, cattle, and dairy cow zones by 2020, including the high-tech aquatic breeding centre in Chuong My district.

Hanoi also targets to increase the area of high-tech vegetable production to 300 hectares by 2020, thus raising its proportion to the city's total vegetable production value to 6-8 per cent.

Regarding high-tech flower cultivation, the city aims to increase the area to 300 hectares in the next three years, thus boosting its proportion to the city's total flower cultivation value to 25-30 per cent.

Meanwhile, the high-tech fruit cultivation area will be increased to 460 hectares by 2020 and its proportion to the city's total fruit cultivation value to 15-20 per cent.

Currently, the value of hi-tech agricultural products accounts for only 25 per cent of the total value of agricultural products.
