Thong Nhat district is assisted to promote its research and application in agriculture Update: 01-07-2020
On the morning of July 1, Dong Nai Department of Science and Technology (DOST) coordinated with Thong Nhat district People’s Committee to hold a conference to connect institutes, universities, centers and local research experts and to promote application and scientific and technological advances into agricultural production.

Mrs. Nguyen Thi Hoang, Director of DOST and Mr. Nguyen Dinh Chuong, Vice Chairman of the district People’s Committee co-chaired the conference. In addition, the conference was attended by the representatives of the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Farmer’s Association and, Cooperative Union and the experts and scientists from the institutes, universities, and centers inside and outside the province.


Mrs. Nguyen Thi Hoang, Director of DOST addressed the conference


Mr. Nguyen Dinh Chuong, Vice Chairman of the district People’s Committee, said: “Agricultural production is a area that attracts the district’s special attention ​​as locals mainly participate in the district’s agricultural economy. Since 2016, scientific research projects that have been applied have gradually promoted their effectiveness and contributed to changing local farmers’ farming practices, and improved productivity, competitive value and farmers’ life, as well. However, Thong Nhat district has not been able to build its prominent agricultural brand names yet even though it is a locality with the great advantage of agriculture, especially in livestock activities. Therefore, Thong Nhat district expects that experts and scientists will be able to help it to make proposals, determine tasks, and promote the application of scientific and technological advances to production to create a breakthrough for the agricultural sector. This is also one of the important goals set out in the resolution of the district’s Congress in the period of 2020-2025.


At the conference, the representatives of institutes, universities and research centers said that they were ready to assist the district to transfer technologies and techniques into agricultural production to develop the value chain of the key crops in the coming time.


Making a conclusion at the conference, Mrs. Nguyen Thi Hoang, Director of DOST affirmed that DOST would continue to help Thong Nhat district to apply the TCVN ISO quality management system in administrative reform, and policies to support intellectual property for the units in need as well as collect scientists’ contributive ideas and the district’s recommendations, thereby selecting and putting these ideas into the tasks of the science and technology sector, which are planned to be implemented in 2021 and in the coming years.


As a State management agency, DOST will continue to promote its role of connecting scientists with localities and farmers to accelerate the progress of research, technology transfer, and science and technology into agricultural production for sustainable development like supporting the transfer of block chain, building brand names for agricultural products, establishing geographical indications, studying the technology of processing post-harvest products, and so on.
