Agriculture

Currently climate changes unusually and widely, the area of arable land and water resources in the world are decreasing while food consumption over the world is continuously increasing due to population growth and high living standards. Vietnam is considered one of the countries which are affected most by climate change in the coming years.
Vietnam, with a long history of agriculture, is a major agricultural exporter with a total exported value of $32.1 billion in 2016. Vietnam has exported the large amount of agricultural products with high value, however, over 90% of the exported products are raw, with low processing proportion and 80% of Vietnam's agricultural products have no brand, logo and labels, especially many products have to sell to the world market under foreign brands. As a result, price and gross profit of these products are low despite of the high exported volume and turnover, and the competitiveness is not high. Therefore, it is necessary to have an overall solution including changes of agricultural production process, market forecast, from planning to production, etc.
At the same time, demand for vegetables creates an urgent issue that Vietnam has not solved yet. Consumers gain more and more concern about nutrition, food safety, etc. leading to increasing need for fresh vegetables. Uncontrolled growth stimulants usage, high protective chemicals residues and other contaminated products deteriorate consumers’ trust in the domestic market as it is harder than ever to find highly nutritious products and yet safe for health at the same time.
In addition, other traditional argo-industries such as aquaculture, seafood processing, and seedling production also have more opportunities to grow in the domestic and international markets.
