Viet Nam: Agriculture Science and Technology Project

In 2005, Viet Nam’s agriculture sector accounted for 21% of the GDP, 30% of export values, and 60% of employment. Also taking credit for the sector’s growth was the country’s greater focus on agriculture science and technology (AST), which boosted productivity. At appraisal, the significance of the AST initiative was becoming apparent from the growing diversity in agricultural trade that put emphasis on product quality and competitiveness. These were requisites that could only be satisfied by an advanced AST. However, Viet Nam’s AST system was highly fragmented and was weighed down by duplication of efforts and programs. Hence, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) assisted the government in formulating a road map for an effective AST principally designed to strengthen the technological base of the sector. The implementation of the road map, however, heavily dependent on improved research and extension systems, availability of technically qualified human resource, improved equipment and facilities, and a management approach. These investments were seen as urgent initiatives to improve and modernize the country’s AST system by building the capacity of extension and vocational schools and other stakeholders in planning and in implementing advanced AST activities.
