NDO – A total of 63 Vietnamese farmers with outstanding initiatives to tackle COVID-19 pandemic challenges and develop new-styled rural areas will be honoured at a ceremony set to be held at the Hanoi Opera House on December 2.

This was announced at a press conference held in Hanoi on November 24 by the Vietnam Farmers’ Association, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, and the Party Commission for Communication and Education.

According to the organising board, the 63 honourees were selected from 146 candidates nominated by local farmers’ associations in 63 cities and provinces nationwide.

The 63 honourees include many young farmers who devised sound solutions to avoid interruptions in production due to COVID-19 and reaped fruitful achievements in their businesses.

The outstanding farmers have also been active in applying advanced technology in production while making contributions to the construction of modern rural areas and local socio-economic development.

The award ceremony is being held as part of the ‘Pride of Vietnamese Farmers’ programme, which has been running since 2013 with the aim of highlighting the examples of excellent farmers in the national construction and development.
