HÀ NỘI — Sixty-two individuals, including four women, have been honoured as 'scientists of farmers' in recognition of their significant devotion and contributions to farmers, agriculture and new-style rural area building.

The intellectuals, scientists and inventors, 23 of whom hold PhDs or other doctoral degrees, were selected among candidates submitted by councils of 47 cities and provinces nationwide from April to November.

They were honoured at a ceremony in Hà Nội last week, which was organised by Vietnam Farmers’ Union (VFU) Central Committee, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the Ministry of Science and Technology, and the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations.

Addressing the awards ceremony, VFU Chairman Thào Xuân Sùng said the event holds political, social, economic and technological significance, contributing to implementing the Party’s guidelines and policies.

“It aims to connect relevant sides in agriculture, firstly scientists and farmers, to promote agricultural development towards mass production, with higher productivity and quality,” he said.

Sùng urged the intellectuals, scientists and investors to continue applying their initiatives in agriculture and rural area building. VNS
