The proportion of agricultural labor in total social labor falls to around 25%; the rate of trained agricultural workers rises to over 55%; and more than 80% of agricultural cooperatives are operating effectively. In comparison to 2020, rural residents' income would rise by at least 1.5 times.
The proportion of organic fertilizer products in total fertilizer products generated and consumed has increased by over 15%; the amount of biological plant protection drugs allowed to be used has increased by over 30%; and the forest coverage rate has remained constant at 42 percent, increasing forest quality.
In agriculture, we're forming three commodity categories
One of the Plan's missions for 2025 is to structure the economy around three product categories: national product groups, key product groups at the regional level, and local specialty product groups.
For the group of national main products: To concentrate investment and growth in the direction of concentrated and large-scale crop production in cooperation with the agricultural product processing industry through a competitive supply chain linkage. Prioritize investment resources to promote synchronous mechanization, research and technology application, supply chain growth associated with the quality control system, food protection, traceability, and trade development. a nationwide brand. Strengthening regional and business relations to invest in the production of national main products; promoting foreign collaboration, investment promotion, and market development initiatives to reduce trade barriers and encourage exports.
Development orientation of national key product groups: rice, coffee, rubber, cashew, pepper, tea, fruit trees, vegetables, cassava, pork, poultry meat and eggs, pangasius, shrimp wood, wood products, NTFPs.
For the category of key agricultural products at the provincial level: Provinces have structures and policies that target investment resources to produce key agricultural products based on their benefits, specific conditions, and regional market demand. Promoting production in accordance with good and equivalent production practices, thus adhering to food safety and environmental regulations; improving processing to diversify ingredients, and developing goods with specific geographical signs and traceability.
For key products at provincial level with great potential for large-scale development, strengthening linkages between localities to establish focused commodity production areas, applying mechanization in accordance with the development of the agricultural processing industry, having policies, solutions, and tools to increase product size, efficiency, and branding to add to the national key product listwhen eligible.
For the group of local specialty products: Focusing on adopting mechanisms, policies, and solutions to improve product quality, manufacturing enterprise capability, and a step-by-step approach to competitive markets along the value chain. One product per Commune Program (OCOP) associated with the Program; prioritize the development of advantageous goods to promote identity, arouse people's ability, imagination, and pride, promote the association, and ensure community values in OCOP product development. associated with the creation of a new countryside, particularly the development of community-based tourism models in rural areas.
Perfecting goods in accordance with requirements, technological legislation, packaging, labeling synonymous with traceability, local logos, and trademarks; the the use of digital technologies in product management and trading to gradually promote the Vietnamese OCOP brand name in the domestic and export markets.
Restructuring production according to each field
As a result, to satisfy market demand, agricultural production should be restructured in the direction of reducing the proportion of production value of food crops to about 35%, short-term industrial crops to about 2.1%, and perennial industrial crops to about 14.5%, thus increasing the proportion of fruit trees to 21% and vegetables to 17%. This contributes to ensuring national food security in the new situation.
Effective land management and use specialized in rice cultivation, with the ability to switch between developing grain crops and food crops. To develop sustainable and ecological agriculture in order to satisfy consumer demands and to support tourism.
The average rate of growth in output value is 2.0 to 2.2 percent per year, and the average rate of growth in added value is 1.8 to 2.0 percent per year; by 2025, the value of harvested products per hectare of agricultural land would be about 120 million VND.
To modify the structure of livestock herds in order to reduce the proportion of pigs and increase the proportion of poultry and herbivores in the field of animal husbandry. By 2025, the production of carcasses of all kinds will range from 5.0 to 5.5 million tons, with pork accounting for 63 to 65 percent, poultry meat accounting for 26 to 28 percent, and grass-fed cattle accounting for 8 to 10 percent; the proportion of cattle and poultry slaughtered industrially is roughly 60 percent and 40 percent, respectively. The proportion of processed meat and poultry produced in addition to overall meat production ranges from 25 to 30%.
The average growth rate of output volume is between 4.0 and 5% per year, while the average growth rate of added value is between 3.5 and 4.5 percent per year. To develop livestock in the direction of industry, high-tech application, and recirculating husbandry in both professional farms and livestock households, while maintaining biosafety, disease control, and environmental friendliness.
In the fisheries sector, improve aquaculture and fishing in an effective and sustainable way, while protecting the ecological environment in accordance with international integration, national defense, and protection in marine areas and islands. Increase offshore farming by concentrating on high-value objects; organic aquaculture development. Increasing the effective and sustainable exploitation of marine products in the high seas on the basis of aquatic resource reserves; building of boat structures, occupation, assessing and allocating fishing quotas in compliance with the current situation, and permissible exploitation of aquatic resources. Reorganizing coastal and inland exploitation practices, as well as logical inland exploitation, by connecting fishermen's livelihood development with aquaculture and ecotourism.
The average growth rate of production value is between 3.5 and 4.0 percent per year, while the average growth rate of added value is between 3.3 and 3.8 percent per year. Restructuring production to increase the proportion of aquaculture production to around 60% while decreasing the proportion of exploited output to around 40%.
For forestry industry, protect and grow natural forests in a sustainable way for. Bringing the role of conservation and protection of the ecological ecosystem and habitats fully into action, contributing to the reduction of harm caused by natural disasters and responding to climate change. Continue to strengthen natural forest management and protection; research and establish mechanisms to enable the use of forest economic values to contribute to poverty reduction and socioeconomic growth in forested areas. Forestry economic creation that is sustainable; moving the growth paradigm away from area and volume expansion and toward improving production, efficiency, and added value of forestry products. Agroforestry, non-timber forest products, urban forestry, landscape, and forest-related sustainable tourism are all being created. Implement the policy of payment for forest environmental services in a timely and efficient manner.
The average growth rate of output volume is between 5.0 and 5.5 percent per year, while the average growth rate of added value is between 4.5 and 5.0 percent per year. Wide timber forest area accounts for approximately 30% of total newly planted forest area; planted forest productivity averages 20 m3 / ha / year. The area of production forest certified for sustainable forest management is approximately 0.5 million ha.
For salt industry, improving and modernizing facilities for the salt industry; implementing technological innovations to improve the capacity of commercial salt, clean salt; creating main industrial-scale salt production areas in the southern central provinces; drastically reducing the area of manual salt production, which is inefficient; transforming inadequate salt production areas to other areas with higher economic efficiencies. To prioritize the cultivation and processing of salt that contains many minerals and natural micronutrients with low NaCl content and is beneficial to health. The total area of salt production is approximately 14,500 hectares, the supply is 1.5 million tons per year, and the area of salt for commercial production is approximately 4,805 hectares.
