HCM CITY (VNS) — The Tropical Agricultural Research and Consultancy Centre was inaugurated in HCM City yesterday with a mandate to sign up local and international agricultural scientists to do research and create technologies.

It would also provide training, consult for domestic and foreign agricultural firms, and carry out trial production programmes, Nguyen Dang Nghia, its director, said.

Nguyen Van Hoa, deputy director of the Crop Production Department, said the new model is expected to meet services for sustainable agricultural development.

The upcoming TPP and ASEAN Economic Community agreements would adversely affect agriculture more than any other sector, he said.

Climate change is another challenge facing the sector, he said. — VNS
