Applying digital transformation to agricultural production in Vietnam.


Current status and trends of digital technology application in agricultural production in Vietnam

  • Digital transformation is one of the global trends and no one can go against it, but the urgency and importance are enormous in recent years. Vietnam is an agricultural country with rural areas accounting for 63% of the population, 66% of households, and 68% of working people; Agriculture accounts for 13.96% of GDP, digital transformation of the agricultural sector will be an opportunity for Vietnam to overcome shortcomings such as a small and underdeveloped production model as well as a lack of value chain linkages in the economy. agricultural sector to have more sustainable development orientations
  • Current situation of Vietnam’s agriculture (difficulties and problems)
