This primer starts by describing Vietnam’s agriculture and its significant contributions in bolstering the country’s overall economy. It features the primary agricultural commodities produced for the import and export market and the market trend. Government interventions and policy reforms that have had profound impact on development efforts are also discussed. The final parts of the primer deal with the important facets that could potentially help boost the agriculture sector if addressed accordingly - public investment and research and development.

This series aims to promote awareness on the state of agriculture of the Southeast Asian countries. The consistency in format and presentation of the series enables easy comparability of agriculture situation across countries and the drawing of lessons from each others experiences. The cultural differences notwithstanding, there are many commonalities and similarities among the countries, especially in geographical characteristics, making agriculture a common priority and concern in the region.
