Agriculture has always been an area of ​​interest to all countries of the world and plays an important and undeniable role. In developed countries, although the share of agriculture has declined, it cannot be completely eliminated. The most important role of agriculture is to ensure national food security and the survival of the people. The 4th industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) is further accelerating a global and profound change in economic and social life, including agriculture. Under the impact of this revolution, traditional agriculture has evolved into smart agriculture. A question posed to us is how to effectively convert traditional agriculture to smart agriculture by using science and technology to optimize production processes, increase the productivity and quality of agricultural products, and transfer, distribute and use smarter and more sustainable energy.

Vietnam, an agricultural country, must be aware of this change, thus modifying the research and training strategy to promote the positive impacts and limit the negative effects of this revolution, while ensuring sustainable agricultural development.

Afin de reconnaître globalement les aspects intelligents de l'agriculture, les grandes tendances et les changements de la société, l'Institut Francophone Internationale (IFI) - Université Nationale de Hanoi, en collaboration avec l'OIF, l'AUF et l'IFV organisera la conférence internationale « Agriculture intelligente: potentiel et réalité » le 25 novembre 2021. Cette événement, avec des échanges, discussions et le partage d'expériences étudiera des perspectives multidimensionnelles du concept d’ « agriculture intelligente » pour orienter le développement de l’agriculture intelligente au Vietnam.
