HA NOI (VNS)— Experts are reviewing the agriculture production – both domestic and global – during a conference that kicked off on Thursday.
Agriculture will face many challenges this year due to the slow recovery of the global economy and declining agro-export prices.
The sector met its goals for 2012, but growth decreased to 2.72 per cent from 4 per cent.
There were some bright spots: exports of rice, coffee and wood products hit over US$3 billion and seafood exports ranked fourth in the world.
Experts urged sustainable development as well as restructuring of farming, breeding, aquaculture and epidemic prevention.-VNS
