05 Data Analysis and Edit Officers

Entering the market mechanism and joining the World Trade Organization, Vietnam allows international organizations to build a distribution system in Vietnam. This is a huge challenge for many small and medium enterprises (SME) manufacturing and trading agricultural products. In recent time, the State has launched a series of policies to mount businesses and farmers. Achieving these initial results, however, these policies have not done well to promote the role of the businesses. Enterprises are lack of the stable materials; farmers are lack of capital and technology. One of practical solutions has been applied in the world, especially in Spain, is to build the channel connecting the business with farmers.

Derived from this context, AgroVietlink Agriculture and Rural Development Trade and Consulting Company was established with assistance from the project “Study on policy recommendations to support for development of small and medium enterprises in agricultural sector and rural areas – phase II + III ” (SMEs Project) sponsored by Spanish International Cooperation Agency (AECID). The objective of the company is to connect farmers with enterprises and consumer market in order to improve operation efficiency, value and income for farmers. AgroVietlink intends to become the most reliable provider of market information and market research for farmers in Vietnam; and become a trusted partner in the transfer of advanced technology, and good agricultural production practices; training and consultancy business administration for cooperatives and farmers in Vietnam.
