Agriculture is an important economic sector of Vietnam. In 2009, the output value of agriculture reached 71,473 trillion VND (compared to 1994 prices), an increase of 1.32% compared to 2008 and accounted for 13.8% of the total domestic output. In contrast, in 2020, the output value will reach about VND 27 trillion. The share of agriculture in the economy has declined in recent years, while other economic sectors have increased.

Meanwhile, land use productivity in Vietnam is only about 1,000 USD/ha/year, equivalent to the value that agriculture brings to Vietnam is 285 USD/person/year. Agriculture provides Vietnam with a very low level of income (below the poverty line of 1.9 USD/day) making it impossible for Vietnam to become a developed country if it relies solely on agriculture or agriculture remains the dominant sector. in economy.
