At the workshop, jointly organised by Vietnam’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) and Laos’ Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, participants praised MARD’s support to Laos’ agricultural sector and contributions to enhancing hunger eradication and poverty reduction in Laos. Workshop participants affirmed that Vietnam’s agricultural achievements and experiences are extremely useful to guide Laos’ agricultural development.
Participants heard that to develop a sustainable agricultural sector, Laos should restructure its agricultural production towards high technology applications and build a long-term national development strategy.
