The agriculture minister highlighted the organic and circular agriculture projects by Que Lam Group as those that should be replicated.
At the convention, Nguyen Hong Lam, Chairman of Que Lam Group, was elected as chairman of the Vietnam Circular Agriculture Association for the 2021-2026 tenure.
Lam stated that the association will work for the development of Vietnam’s circular agriculture, towards making it a driver of the circular economy while contributing to sustainable development.
