Agricultural sector needs impulse for sustainable development

Despite many achievements, the agricultural investment and development in the Central and Central Highlands of Vietnam are facing many challenges due to a shortage of capital, unstable prices, or a lack of market for products. Enterprises and farmers are looking forward to the third dialogue conference between Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and farmers scheduled to take place on September 28 in Buon Ma Thuot City in Dak Lak Province, with the hope that it will open the tie-knot and promote sustainable agricultural production development.
