Delegates signed a program to cooperate in supporting Hanoi in building and developing a number of sustainable agricultural, forestry and fishery value chains.

Deputy Director of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Ngoc Son said that Hanoi’s agricultural production only meets 30-65% (depending on product) the demand of more than 10 million people. The missing goods are connected and exploited from provinces and cities across the country and imported from abroad.

Over the past years, to realize the plan to restructure the city’s agriculture sector, focusing on developing the supply chain of safe agricultural, forestry and fishery food, the city developed 159 chains from production to consumption of agricultural, forestry and fishery products, in which, 53 are product chains of animal origin and 106 are product chains of plant origin.

Currently, the Hanoi Department of Agriculture and Rural Development and 21 northern provinces and cities continue to maintain 786 safe agricultural, forestry and aquatic food supply chains that were built in 2015-2020; and continue to expand the signing and coordination of 22 southern provinces with 140 safe food supply chains.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has selected Hanoi as the locality to implement the project “Food safety for development”. Accordingly, Hanoi selected a number of chains to comprehensively support infrastructure, equipment, improve quality and food safety from production to consumption, design, packaging, and marketing as a point model.

According to Brian Allemekinders, Head of Development Cooperation Department, the Canadian Embassy in Vietnam, the food safety for development project will help actors join the chain of necessary rapid testing and inspection equipment; science and technology transfer, management software, retrieval, and digital transformation in the pilot model.

Director of the National Agro-Forestry-Fisheries Quality Assurance Department Nguyen Nhu Tiep said that the project aims to help Hanoi build and develop a number of sustainable agro-forestry-fishery value chains (expected 7-8 chains), build brands, and organize communication to promote and connect some products of the chain./.
