NDO/VNA – Close to 20 businesses from Vietnam and France gathered at a forum in Paris on February 26 to exchange know-how in organic agricultural production.

The event created an opportunity for Vietnamese firms to learn about France’s state management in the field. It also helped organic certification providers from the European country have a chance to study Vietnam’s investment climate to assist local businesses develop organic farming.

Participants agreed that the demand for healthy and environmentally-friendly agricultural products will become an inevitable trend in the coming time in many countries, especially developed nations.

Vietnam’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development is actively implementing an agriculture restructuring project which pays special attention to creating environmentally-friendly and high added-value organic farm products for exports.

The ministry will promulgate appropriate policies to help production units and associations to speed up the development of organic agriculture and maintain ecological balance, especially in the light of international economic integration and climate change adaptation.
