The conference received 10 valuable comments from overseas Vietnamese on the development of high-tech agriculture in the City. For example, Doctor Nguyen Tri Dung, from Japan, said that Japan was a potential market for Vietnam. If Vietnam has a good policy and attitude, the cooperation with Japan will help Vietnamese agriculture make great advances. Professor Doctor Dang Luong Mo, from Japan, stated that high-tech agriculture could not be operated like traditional agriculture. Not only do farmers need to learn but the State also needs to have suitable policies and trained knowledgeable officers to work with farmers. Doctor Nguyen Thanh My, from Canada, emphasized the need to develop agriculture 4.0. That means it is imperative to apply technological advances to production and distribution processes to improve the effectiveness and cut down expenses, which is also suitable with the tendency.
