Food Security | Vietnam | Although Vietnam's agriculture sector has created remarkable achievements but the income of farmers are still very low. Hence, a food security forum to discuss about the sustainable agriculture development is very essential. According to the MARD, the country needs 36 million tons of rice to meet the demand of about 130 million people in 2035, while the World Bank predicted that by 2030, Vietnam's total food production would be reduced by 5 million tons from major causes of pests and low technologies.
