HÀ NỘI — Japan’s Arrowfield Co. Ltd. has signed an agreement with Việt Nam Farmers’ Association on providing support for the growth and development of agriculture and farmers in Việt Nam.
Under the agreement, the two sides will work jointly to pass on agricultural skills, techniques, and know-how based on traditional Japanese natural farming methods (organic farming/pesticide-free production) to Vietnamese farmers, to encourage the production of safe foods.
Việt Nam will promote the purchase and use of clean agricultural products and techniques, organic farming and pesticide-free production provided by the Japanese firm and permitted for sale and circulation in the country to improve agricultural yield, taste, and quality of cultivation, shipment and distribution.
With regards to the cultivation of flowers and fruit trees, the Japanese firm will make recommendations on chemical products such as fertilisers sold in Japan by specialists or companies selected by Việt Nam.
The mutual co-operation aims to contribute to the socio-economic development and development of Việt Nam’s agricultural sector, as well as promote cultural exchanges and mutual understanding between the two countries. At the same time, the co-operation will contribute directly and indirectly to the growth of agricultural product exports of both countries.
Speaking at the signing ceremony, Lại Xuân Môn, president of Việt Nam Farmers’ Association, said: “Việt Nam is one of the countries that has an edge in agricultural production, but productivity is still low. The mutual co-operation will contribute towards Việt Nam’s agricultural development and production of safe products, and help farmers increase their earnings.” — VNS
