Globalization and economic integration have been obviously causing a lot of both positive and negative impacts on every country, particularly developing ones, in the world. To take advantage of positive impacts and minimize negative ones, it is therefore very necessary to strengthen cooperation and mutual understanding among countries, which have an agriculture-based economy. In this context, the learning forum on "Sufficiency Economy and the New Agricultural theory" was held in Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) on 29 September 2006, co-organized by Foundation for Human Resource Development (Thailand), Royal Thai Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City, and NICD Co. Ltd (Network of International Cooperation for Development). The forum also received supports from Thailand International Development Cooperation Agency, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Thailand), the Royal Thai Embassy in Hanoi, and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (Vietnam). The Forum was presided by Prof.Dr. Chira Hongladarom (Project Chairman and Secretary General of FIHRD), Dr. Nguyen Tri Dung (President of Network of International Cooperation for Development; Director of Minh Tran Co.Ltd.), and the Consul General of Thai Royal Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City). It attracted active participation of more than 40 researchers and activists in the agricultural sector. They come from different agricultural provincial departments, universities and research centers in Ho Chi Minh City as well as all other provinces in Southern Vietnam. Presented at the conference, there are three key papers, including "Globalization, Sufficiency, HRD in Agricultural Sector: Implication to Vietnam" by Prof.Dr. Chira Hongladarom, "Experience on Agricultural Sector of Vietnam" by Dr. Nguyen Minh Chau (Director, Southern Fruit Research Institute), and "Role of Agriculture, the King's New Theory and Economic Development: Application to Vietnam" by Dr. Thunwa Jitsangguan (Vice President for International Affairs, Kasetsart University). As the goal of the learning forum is to exchange and share knowledge and experience in agricultural production and management, all the participants actively and seriously discussed issues emerging in the agricultural sector and potentials for bilateral cooperation and application of the King's new theory to agriculture in Vietnam. The forum was very highly appreciated. Participants learned a lot from each other as well as from Thai scholars. Both sides also discussed a coming learning visit to Thailand and designed topics for a follow-up project. In general, the forum was really successful for both Thai and Vietnamese researchers, creating good opportunities for future effective cooperation in agricultural production and management research.

Dear Dr. Chira Hongladarom,

Having joined the meeting on September 29, 2006 in HCM City, I appreciated the King's philosophy of sufficiency econoy presented by you and Dr. Thanwa Jitsanguan because it fits the sustainable development, esp. in agriculture. So, I come up with some ideas to apply it. One of them is the pilot project of reducing paddy crops to protect the environment (replacing them by Ischaemum grass which is used as food for cattle). Can you help me carry out the project in Angiang province?

Look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Doan Ngoc Pha

Vice Director of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development

An Giang Province-Vietnam
