Vieät Nam aims for just four key industries
HAØ NOÄI Vieät Nam this week announced an action plan that maps out strategies to develop four key industries to raise the countrys competence in production and service supply.
Under the framework of Vieät Nam-Japan co-operation from 2020 to 2030, the industries are electronics, agricultural machinery, agro-fishery processing, and environmental industry and energy conservation. These indus- tries are viewed as playing a leading role in attracting foreign investments and popularising technologies and skills in the economy.
Vieät Nam aims to raise the annual value of these industries by at least 20 per cent and ensure a 35-per cent minimal contribution from these industries to the nations total industrial value by 2020.
By 2030, the country expects to become a major producer of electronics components using advanced environment-friendly technology.
Nguyeãn Thò Tueä Anh, deputy head of the Central Institute for Economic Management (CIEM), said Vieät Nam and Japan would cooperate to create an ideal environment for State and private sector investors and set up the criteria for, conduct assessments on and analyse the features of each target industry.
Ñoaøn Xuaân Hoøa, deputy head of the Department of Processing and Trade for Agro-Forestry-Fishery Products and Salt Production, said: Its very important to decide which regions will play a key role and which enterprises will be flagships so as to put the action plan in practice.
Vieät Nams Government has implemented major projects to improve legal frameworks for the agricultural machinery industry and enable farmers to produce quality goods at competitive prices. The plan aims to increase per capita GDP in the agricultural sector from $740 in 2010 to $2,000 in 2020.
In fisheries, the Government plans to help domestic producers develop worldstandard technologies and expand market research activities to make Vieät Nams processed foods more visible and competitive in the global market.
To bolster environmental and energy conservation, policymakers in Haø Noäi aim to subsidise and increase financial concessions to companies that work in this sector.
The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development will work with the Embassy of Japan in Vieät Nam and Japan International Cooperation Agency to organise trade exchanges among companies.
