With a total capital of VND40 billion, the centre is being built on an area of over 19,000 square metres.

It will consist of a multi-functional building, practicing workshops, dining rooms, dormitories and supplementary constructions.

The construction, scheduled to be completed in 2017, will be a place for vocational training, employment consultancy and introductions for farmers in the province.

Speaking during the inauguration ceremony, Standing Deputy President of the Vietnam Farmers’ Association, Lai Xuan Mon noted that vocational training for increasing the quality of human resources among farmers played a crucial role in industrialization and modernization of rural areas and agricultural production as well as the increasingly deep and wide integration.

He added that after the renewal process, there has been strong development in rural and agricultural production, making contributions to increasing the position of the country, with many agricultural products leading the world in terms of export, which has also helped to boost poverty reduction.

However, he also pointed out weaknesses in agricultural production, including low productivity and low value of products, especially those in mountainous and ethnic minority-inhabited areas. “One of the main reasons is a lack of vocational training among farmers,” said Mr. Mon. “The Party and Government is paying a lot of attention to boost vocational training for farmers.”

There are currently 38 centres in support of farmers’ vocational training across the country./.
