Thanh Hoa, Vietnam Digitises Agricultural Activities

For over a year, the Thanh Hoa province has been implementing digital transformation initiatives across its localities, in line with the Party Committee’s resolution that made digitisation an urgent and long-term strategic task.

In implementing the resolution, the provincial Farmers’ Union and Post Office signed a cooperative agreement to help farmers digitise the production and sale of farm produce and goods for the 2021-2025 period. So far, over 70% of the Farmers’ Union direction and guidance documents at the provincial and district levels are available online. Many agricultural products of the Union’s members have been introduced on two state-owned e-commerce platforms, namely, Postmart and Vo So.

The Union wants 4,000 households engaging in agro-forestry-fishery production, processing, and trading to offer their products on Postmart this year. The agency also plans to set up a showroom at the Farmer Support Centre. It will use ICT to enhance local farmers’ knowledge about digital technology and help them switch from traditional to digital agriculture.

The trade union organisation of the Federation of Labour will implement a comprehensive digital transformation by providing equipment and software for the safe and secure integration of data in the network of trade unions. Presently, all documents sent and received through the federation’s document management system have used digital signatures, following the “meetings without paper” policy, which was launched this February. Trade unions at levels higher than the grassroots levels and grassroots unions with large memberships have been provided with equipment like mobile speakers and projectors to serve communications activities.

Over the next two years, the federation plans to create content in the form of short video clips and news broadcasts, using artificial intelligence (AI) and infographic technology for social media sites. It will also release monthly news bulletins and clips outlining procedures to establish grassroots trade unions and new labour policies, as well as healthcare for workers.

By 2025, the federation aims to complete and operationalise information processing software for all its units and process at least 80% of work papers at the provincial level and 70% of work papers at the district level online. To ensure effective digital transformation, the federation will hold training courses for trade union activists and members. Trade unions are required to regularly review and propose adjustments to issues related to digital transformation. Contests will be launched to seek digital solutions and promote digital transformation in production and business activities.

In March, the Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC) adjusted a 2022 plan regarding farming households on e-commerce platforms and the agricultural and rural digital economy. It aims to have ten million active accounts on Postmart and Vo So. As OpenGov Asia reported, the plan also aims to put all 3-star one-commune-one-product (OCOP) items online. MIC will digitally train and upskill all farming households as well as increase the number and value of transactions on Postmart and Vo So. It will help farming households promote, advertise, and introduce new products, and expand to domestic and international markets. Through the online market sites, farming households can access information about farm produce markets, predictions about demand, production capacity, weather forecasts, and reports about varieties and fertilisers.
