Sharing the same view, Deputy Foreign Minister Pham Quang Hieu said that many OVs have invested back in the homeland, thus helping develop hi-tech products in the agricultural sector and contributing to increasing productivity and quality of products and generating more jobs.

The ministry will continue stepping up the economic diplomacy, and coordinating with the MARD, localities and agencies to boost the export of farm produce to the world.

Participating OVs stated that in the context of numerous enterprises affected by the pandemic, the State should issue mechanisms to reduce tax and costs for investors in the field, as well as policies to better support exporters.
