HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc has signed Decision No 70/QD-TTg on the establishment and issuance of operational regulations for the Thái Nguyên high-tech agricultural zone.
The zone will be set up in Tiên Phong Commune, Phổ Yên Town, Thái Nguyên Province, spanning 154.36ha.
It will host research activities and pilot high-tech production models in farming, forestry, aquaculture, and farm produce preservation and processing.
The zone will also specialise in training and technology transfer for the agricultural sector of the province, the region and Việt Nam as a whole.
