Through articles, works, and thematic series, it has contributed to changing the awareness of Party committees and authorities at all levels in implementing the construction of agriculture, farmers, and rural areas; At the same time, change the thinking of farmers in the new period of shifting from agricultural production thinking to agricultural economic thinking, integrating multiple values.
After more than 35 years of innovation, the country has changed a lot. Vietnamese agriculture has grown from a place of constant shortage to become one of the major agricultural exporters in the world. From grains of rice, cups of coffee to shrimp, Vietnamese fish are present in more than 190 markets around the world. Vietnamese farmers, from the image of “selling their face to the land, their back to the sky” now have a new mindset – being farmers in the integration era, civilized farmers. Vietnam’s countryside, from having only ridges and bamboo banks, has harmonized with the country through the new rural construction program to become more modern, into countryside worth living.
That’s why, in the Resolution of the 13th Congress of the Party, “ecological agriculture, modern rural areas, and civilized farmers” were identified as the goals for our country’s “three agricultural” cause in many years to come. To concretize that policy, the 5th Conference of the 13th Party Central Committee issued Resolution No. 19-NQ/TW on agriculture, farmers, and rural areas until 2030; Vision to 2045 with the goal of bringing Vietnam’s agriculture and rural areas to comprehensive development, farmers will increasingly have a prosperous and happier life.
