Vietnam has one of the fastest-growing economies in Southeast Asia. Since 1991 the economic growth has averaged a stunning 7.5% each year. Vietnam is among nine nations in the world with the fastest growing middle-class in the coming decade. By 2030 Vietnam is expected to add 36 million people to its middle class.
Agriculture holds significant potential, contributing approximately 18 percent to the GDP and engaging 39 percent of Vietnam's 100 million inhabitants, making it a crucial sector. Revenues from agricultural exports surged from $4.2 billion in 2004 to $41.3 billion in 2019, positioning Vietnam as the second-largest exporter in Southeast Asia. Rice, the primary cultivation, sustains the livelihoods of two-thirds of rural workforce, and Vietnam, producing over 40 million tons annually, is the world's second-largest rice exporter.
The government is actively promoting the mechanization of agriculture. By 2030, Vietnam aims for 70 percent mechanization in crop production, targeting an estimated income of around 120 million VND (5,140 USD) per year for farmers, according to the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Le Minh Hoan. He emphasized the necessity of smart technologies, digitization, and automation as inevitable solutions to enhance labor productivity for efficient agricultural production and sustainable development.
