To be so successful, CRD has received valuable assistance from partner organizations and active support from the leadership of Hue University and HU-CoAF of various periods, the effective cooperation from local authorities and residents, as well as the enthusiastic involvement of HU-CoAF faculty and CRD staff over the past 20 years. On that basis, CRD has made outstanding contribution to both the college and the society.

Also at the ceremony, Assoc.Prof.Dr. Hoang Manh Quan, former Director of the CRD, one of the founding members, stated: “It can be said that CRD has been increasingly and enormously developing over the last 20 years, significantly contributing to HU-CoAF and the society. Being an officer working in the field of agriculture, I find nothing happier than helping the farmers with successful production and receiving positive evaluation by local authorities and residents. I hope that the Centre will maintain and further promote the brand identity that generations of staff have been developing over the last 20 years so as to contribute more for the college and the society”.


On this occasion, CRD was honorably awarded the Banner of Merit and Certificate of Merit from the Ministry of Education and Training for outstanding performance in 2014 – 2015 and Certificate of Merit from the Provincial People’s Committee for enormous contribution to the work of rural development, poverty reduction and hunger eradication in Thua Thien Hue Province .
