HÀ NỘI — Farmers across the country will benefit from a five-year agreement signed yesterday between the Việt Nam Farmer’s Union and International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).

Under the 2016-20 agreement, farmers would have the opportunity to learn to run sustainable-agriculture models, as well as build connections in the agricultural value chain.

Additionally, officials of the union were targeted to be trained to improve their overall farming skills.

Lại Xuân Môn, head of the union, said the agreement was expected to equip domestic farmers with more knowledge to integrate the agriculture sector into regional and global communities.

Further, Henning Pedersen, director of IFAD, said the fund would continue supporting Việt Nam to develop the agriculture sector in the near future. — VNS
