The vertical farming model of France is suitable for development conditions in the northern city of Hai Phong, said Director of the municipal Department of Science and Technology Tran Quang Tuan.

Speaking at a recent working session with representatives of Jungle, a French vertical farming company in the northern Aisne province of France on the occasion of his working trip in France, Tuan said Vietnam has a high demand for clean vegetables and food, and a lack of space.

Hai Phong hopes to set up a partnership with Jungle, towards transferring this smart farming technology to the Vietnamese locality, Hai said. Tran Manh Hung, head of the Representative Office of the Ministry of Science and Technology in France, said that Vietnam and France have many prospects in innovation cooperation, especially for local businesses of the two countries.

With many strengths suitable for application in Vietnam, this farming technology can help address challenges caused by climate change and population growth, he said.
