Hanoi to ensure food safety for ten million residents
Anh Kiet 17:53, 2023/05/31
Hanoi will apply many solutions to improve the efficiency of enforcing food safety regulations in 2023 and the future.

The Hanoi People's Committee has issued a plan to ensure food security for ten million people in the capital by 2030.

The plan, signed by Deputy Chairman of the Hanoi People's Committee Nguyen Manh Quyen, aims to strengthen the responsibilities of local governments and socio-political organizations to ensure food safety and security in Hanoi in all circumstances.

The plan also aims to promote the resources of all economic sectors and support from the State to develop agriculture in a sustainable way.

According to the plan, by 2030, Hanoi will have approximately 55,000 hectares of rice production with an annual output of at least 660,000 tons of rice. In addition, the city has set targets to increase food consumption, reduce the rate of child malnutrition, and meet nutritional needs through balanced and scientific diets.

The Hanoi People's Committee has identified eight tasks and solutions to achieve the above goals, including restructuring production, improving the efficiency of agricultural land use, and steadily increasing residents' income; improving the leadership and direction of Party committees, organizations, and agencies to ensure food security.
 

Renovating mechanisms and policies to ensure food security is the third mission of the plan. This includes increasing people's capacity and access to safe and nutritious food, improving the quality of human resources and research skills, and promoting applied research and the transfer of science and technology.

The city's plan also aims to realize food security goals, effectively manage and utilize resources, and protect the ecological environment from climate change. Attracting international resources and cooperation in food security will also be a focus.

The plan also stressed that Hanoi would apply many solutions to improve the efficiency of food security in 2023 and the years to come.

In recent years, the Hanoi People's Committee has led the task of maintaining food safety by providing information and training on legal guidelines for safe food production and business practices.

Customers are encouraged to purchase quality products at reasonable prices to support business development, production, and economic recovery.
