At the meeting, PPC Chairman Ho Quoc Dung briefed on agriculture overall situation in Binh Dinh. Accordingly, there are 131,146 ha of agriculture land (accounting for  21.7%), which includes annual crop land and perennial plants and rice land, with an annual rice area of more than 50,000 hectares. There are more than 800,000 cattle in the province, but the productivity of the animal husbandry sector is not high. Therefore, the local government has improved the planning, promoted concentrated husbandry areas and increased the application of technology. In addition, the government has greatly encouraged large companies and corporations to invest in agriculture.

Former PPC Chairman Le Huu Loc and President of Vietnam-Japan Friendship Association of Binh Dinh province requested professors of assist methods to increase productivity and quality of several crop species in order to meet the requirements of export to Japan, share experience to bring ocean tuna to global markets including Japan, and continue to transfer technology and train good quality human resource. He hoped that with great support of Mr Hitoshi Kato, the financial fund of Japan International Coperation Agency (JICA) will come to Binh Dinh soon so that projects such as the Shelter Area project in Tam Quan port, Hoai Nhon district can be implemented in the near future.

For fisheries sector, high tech-based shimp farm and tuna catching using Japanese technology are priorities of the locality, PPC Chairman Ho Quoc Dung asserted that it is important that Mr Hitoshi Kato will continue to support Binh Dinh in overcoming constraints in agriculture and fisheries sector in order to enhance sustainable economic growth.

Mr Hitoshi Kato and professors of Ryukoku university appriciated the information given and committed to sharing their experience in agriculture and ocean tuna catching of Japan. Mr Hitoshi Kato said he would work hard to enhance technology transfer in agriculture, organize links for human resource training for Binh Dinh and continue to bring Japanese entrepreneurs to Binh Dinh to investigate and make investment in the area. Regarding the shelter area project in Tam Quan port, Hoai Nhon district, he promised to make a proposal to the Japanese Embassy soon so that the project can be kicked off with the funding from JICA.
