Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has just appointed Le Minh Hoan, secretary of the Party Committee in Dong Thap Province, as deputy agriculture minister.

Hoan was named Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development in accordance with Decision 1433/QD-TTg, the Government Office said on its website on Tuesday.

He was born on January 19, 1961 in Cao Lanh, the capital of Dong Thap, located in the Mekong Delta.

He is an architect and has a university degree in politics. He also holds a master’s in economics.

He once served as chairman and deputy Party secretary of Dong Thap.

He has been the province’s Party chief since 2010. Hoan is a lawmaker as well.

The politician had been deputy director and then director of the province’s construction department, deputy chairman of the Dong Thap People’s Committee, and Party secretary of Cao Lanh before being promoted to chairman and Party chief of Dong Thap.

Dong Thap is an agricultural province, famous for its ‘business cafés’ and ‘farmer clubs’ where the government listens to business owners and farmers so it can formulate policy to clear any administrative barrier.

Hoan is considered a ‘farmer secretary’ as he often touches base with ordinary people and farmers while willing to suggest initiatives to them.
