It is recognized that the agricultural economy has not developed steadily, agricultural production is mainly based on the small and scattered household economic model. Especially the link between production, processing, and consumption is still limited. In particular, one of the reasons is that investment from the state budget for agriculture, rural areas, and farmers is still limited, and the effectiveness of attracting and using social investment capital for agricultural and rural development is not valid.
Therefore, recently, the Standing Committee of Binh Thuan Provincial Party Committee had a meeting to discuss and give opinions on the action plan of the Provincial Party Committee (XIV) to implement Resolution 19 of the Central Committee of the Party (XIII) on agriculture, farmers, and rural areas by 2030, with a vision to 2045.
Accordingly, the province sets a target that by 2030, the agricultural sector's GRDP growth rate of the whole province will reach an average of 2.8 - 3.3%/year; average agricultural labor productivity increases from 7-8%/year. The average income of rural people in 2030 strives to increase by 2 - 2.5 times compared to 2020.
