The national promotion of agriculture and agriculutral extension programs would be most effective measure to help develop farming and rural areas, a deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development said at the ministry's recent meeting held in Binh Duong Province

Speaking at the event to review and launch the government's decrees on agricultural promotion, Bui Ba Bong said that effective policies in this area would also contribute to ensuring national order and security.

Since 1993, the national agriculture and aquaculture extension programme has increased the number of farming activities, with all cities and provinces now having programmes integrated into their governments and local budgets.

More than VND1.5 trillion (US$75.6 million) has been invested in the programme nationwide in the last five years.

In addition, more than 7,000 technology-transfer centres were set up during the last five-year period of the programme. These centres have trained 5,000 agriculture promoters and 1 million farmers.

Last year alone saw VND198 billion ($10.76 million) spent on agriculture encouragement activities in cultivation, breeding and fisheries.

The agriculture promotion models have resulted in high economic value, at least 10 percent higher than normal agriculture measures.

To parallel the country's socioeconomic development, the government last year issued Decree 02/CP on encouraging and creating opportunities for all individuals and organisations to participate in all agriculture promotion activities.

Under the decree, the agriculture extension program will be implemented in accordance with the Government's other socioeconomic program, such as projects on developing agriculture, farmers and rural areas.

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
