08 October 2022, VN: Without haste, digital transformation must be undertaken with a clear roadmap. Digital transformation can only be successful if the central and local implementations are synchronized

A Webinar titled “Digital transformation in the agriculture industry toward high-tech and smart agriculture” was held in Thanh Hoa on October 6 as part of a series of activities marking the 2022 National digital transformation day.

Mr. Hoang Viet Chon, deputy director of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD), stated during the webinar, “Agriculture plays a critical role in Vietnam’s economy and remains a key sector in ensuring national food security. Digital transformation is an inevitable trend and the key to unlocking sustainable growth in the context of international integration, climate change, diseases, and the fourth industrial revolution

Thanh Hoa DARD viewed the webinar as a chance for the agriculture industry to seek out innovative solutions for the province’s digital transformation duties.

Mr. Tong Xuan Chinh, deputy director of the Department of Livestock Production, stated, “Digital transformation in the agricultural sector is based on three main pillars: digital government at state management agencies responsible for agriculture; digital agricultural economy; digital countryside; and digital farmer.

Vietnam’s agriculture must undergo a complete digital transformation to adapt to the 4.0 technological revolution.

The Department of Livestock Production was tasked by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development with deploying the database system for the management of animal feed production facilities and livestock establishments in response to the urgent needs of production practice and development orientation outlined in the livestock industry development strategy to 2030 with a vision to 2045.

Regarding livestock production specifically, Chinh stated, “Database of livestock feed and livestock facilities would support the capacity increment of state management agencies, transform the awareness and actions of individuals, enterprises, and management officials at the local level in enhancing yield, farming area, quality, and output of the products; facilitate a smooth, up-to-date, and integrated two-way information exchange between the public and agricultural management agencies;  and facilitate the administrative procedure for people to register livestock production smoothly.”

Compliance with management laws in livestock production will enhance productivity, product quality, and output

Therefore, for digital transformation to be successful, the political system must have a high degree of uniting resolve. While resources for investment in digital transformation infrastructure are limited, social resources must be mobilized to serve as a driving force for digital transformation.

In order to add value to sustainable agricultural goods, the federal and state governments must also have policies to assist communities with digital transformation.

What do you anticipate from the digital transformation of agriculture in Thanh Hoa in the near future?

Without haste, digital transformation must be undertaken with a clear strategy and plan. Digital transformation can only be successful if the central and local implementations are synchronized.
