NDO - The agricultural, forestry and fishery sector expanded by 2.74% in the first nine months of 2021, contributing 23.52% to the overall growth of the economy and playing a key role in the national economy during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the General Statistics Office.
Director of the Planning Department under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Van Viet said that the agricultural sector faced many difficulties in the first nine months of this year due to the complicated developments of the COVID-19 pandemic, which caused disruptions to supply-consumption chains.
However, maintaining the growth momentum of the agricultural sector in the last months of 2021 is still a great challenge. Therefore, the agriculture sector needs to receive supports from the Government and the relevant ministries and sectors regarding issues such as: prioritising vaccination for the workforce in the field, providing support for farmers in plant and animal varieties, farming techniques and capital to restore production in addition to supporting businesses in terms of capital, interest rates, and the transportation of materials and products and to help the whole agricultural sector grasp opportunities for recovery and growth in the future.
