VTV.vn - Ho Chi Minh City has set a target to become a breeding hub for providing animal breeds and plant seeds for the southeastern region and the whole country.

This target was set in the context that agriculture accounts for no more than 1% of Ho Chi Minh City's GDP. In addition, land for agricultural production is being narrowed.

Thus, the city has decided to focus more on researching breeds and seedlings rather than mass production.

In the coming time, Ho Chi Minh City will upgrade its infrastructure and human resources as well as create favoruable policies for scientists and enterprises to develop high-quality breeds and seeds.
