Food and beverages are in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) category. For many years, this has always been one of the important economic sectors with great potential for development, according to the Vietnam Report 2020.

The food and beverage market's growth rate is forecasted to reach from 5-6 percent annually in 2020-2025.

Despite suffering negative impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, the food and beverage industry in Vietnam also has many strong growth opportunities. At present, more and more consumers pay attention to nutritional foods of plant origin, organic foods or food with healthy ingredients.

A survey conducted by Vietnam Report at the end of 2020 showed due to COVID-19, half of customers have spent more on foods boosting their immune system and clean foods. Meanwhile, 63.7 percent of customers have cut spending on alcohol and beer. Therefore, businesses in this industry must adjust their production to suit demand.

Food businesses have to increase their production capacity by about 30 percent, while beverage businesses must reduce their production to lower than 80 percent compared to before the pandemic.

Besides that, Vu Dang Vinh, general director of the Vietnam Assessment Report Joint Stock Company, said COVID-19 has forced nearly 70 percent of food and beverage businesses to focus on the digital transformation for survival and development, reported the Vietnam News Agency.

Many businesses have built modern technology processes in production and management. Food and beverage companies have also sped up investment activities to renovate the distribution system and adjust the proportion between traditional and modern trading channels. They develop applications to enhance the customer experience when shopping and innovate packaging design, eco-branding and product line development.

Nguyen Dang Quang, chairman of Masan Group, said the COVID-19 pandemic is a good opportunity to promote e-commerce.

The group is building plans to attract more and more people to online shopping, he said.

Vinh said food and beverage businesses need to focus on strategies such as revenue growth, market development, promotion of research and improving product quality. They should also diversify supply sources with priority for domestic suppliers and develop online distribution channels on e-commerce platforms.

According to experts in the food and beverage industry, the stable macroeconomy and commitments in free trade agreements signed between Vietnam and its partners such as the European Union-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) and the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) would bring export opportunities and more foreign investment. They would promote the transfer of technology and technological advancement in the industry.

Along with that, the food and beverage companies need to improve their competitiveness and increase investment in infrastructure systems and modernisation of production processes and corporate governance./.

Vietnam eyes place in world’s top 10 farms produce processing hubsVietnam eyes place in world’s top 10 farms produce processing hubs
The agriculture ministry has devised measures to turn Vietnam into one of the world’s most 15 developed countries in terms of agriculture by 2030, and among the top 10 farms produce processing hubs.

This is the goal set in the Prime Minister's Directive No. 25/CT-TTg on several tasks and solutions for developing agro-forestry-fishery processing and agricultural mechanization.

Talking to the Vietnam News Agency, Nguyen Quoc Toan, Director of the Agro Processing and Market Development Authority (AgroTrade) under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD), said over the last 10 years, the processing industry has posted a considerable growth rate of 5-7 percent annually, helping to raise agricultural exports to 41.2 billion USD in 2019 – ranking 15th in the world and second in Southeast Asia.

There are 7,500 businesses involved in agricultural processing across the country at present.

However, he noted, to achieve the target set in the directive, the processing industry must optimize local comparative advantages and tap into the potential to make breakthrough development.

Firstly, processing facilities should be relocated to concentrated material supplying areas. Clusters of processing and sale facilities need to be developed in the localities and areas with large agricultural output, favorable conditions in terms of transports, logistics and workforce, and potential to become growth engines of their regions like the Mekong Delta, southeastern and northwestern regions.

The sector will also increase the proportion of intensive processing that generates high added value, Toan said.

Secondly, an open and optimal business climate will be created to facilitate investment in agricultural processing and mechanization, the official noted, adding that the ministry will continue abolishing unnecessary administrative procedures and business conditions while perfecting specific investment attraction policies for each region.

Thirdly, international-level enterprises with high competitiveness will be developed to lead the domestic processing industry. Small- and medium-sized firms also need to be fostered to boost the purchase of raw farm produce, according to him.

Fourthly, the agricultural sector will step up developing science-technology and human resources, he went on, elaborating that more advanced and environmentally friendly technologies will be applied, and mechanical engineering companies will be encouraged to help with agricultural mechanization, thereby forming smart farming models.

The MARD will also work with other ministries and sectors to develop human resources to prepare high-quality personnel for operating major processing plants, Toan added./.

Stable supporting industries crucial to local manufacturingStable supporting industries crucial to local manufacturing
Stable supporting industries and restructuring of chains for industrial production are crucial to improving the country’s manufacturing sector, according to Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI).

VCCI has worked out a plan to develop appropriate policies for supporting industries towards minimising reliance on imports of raw materials as well as reducing prolonged, simple and low-value-added processes, like packaging, production of manuals, and plastic components.

This will enable Vietnam to not only create more value and put the country in a better position in the global supply chain, but will create more opportunities for Vietnam in terms of free trade agreements (FTAs).

According to VCCI, high dependence on imports for supporting industries will lead to higher risks and increase the costs for enterprises.

Dau Anh Tuan, Director of VCCI's Legal Department, said Vietnam's COVID-19 response could make it an attractive investment destination as economies seek to make their supply chains less dependent on China.

Foreign investors were considering shifting investments to Vietnam due to their trust in Vietnam's safety amid the pandemic. With a number of new generation FTAs, Vietnam would have more opportunities if the Government could offer better policies and clear targets to encourage and create favourable conditions for Vietnamese businesses and attract foreign investment into prioritised manufacturing sectors.

Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Do Thang Hai said that from March, the ministry was asking businesses to promote production and boost the construction of large-scale energy and industrial projects to ensure sufficient electricity supply, contributing to the country's economic growth.

The ministry also planned to conduct appropriate solutions and generate incentives for businesses relating to raw materials, production plans, processing, markets and distributions as well, he said.

Economic recovery

Vietnam's industrial sector still grew 6.5 percent year-on-year in the first three months of 2021, with the manufacturing and processing sector expanding 9.45 percent and remaining the main engine of economic growth.

Despite the effects of COVID-19, local manufacturers have sought new ways to do business. In the first quarter of this year, textile, garment and footwear manufacturers showed more positive signals compared to the same period last year. 

Le Tien Truong, CEO of Vietnam Textile and Garment Group (Vinatex), said while many firms involved in industrial production were concerned about the lack of orders due to the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic, textile and garment businesses were enjoying a surge in orders.

He said that at present, Vietnamese textile and apparel enterprises, including those of the group, had orders until the end of April 2021.

Notably, items such as knitwear and popular goods have orders until July and August of 2021.

"It is a good signal for the recovery process of Vietnam's garment and textile sector, especially when Vietnam is in a good position in the global supply chain after the COVID-19 crisis," said Truong.

Many manufacturing industries have experienced difficulties and challenges over the last year.

According to the Vietnam Steel Association, from the beginning of this year, Vietnam's steel market has seen a low sales volume with stagnant production due to decreasing demand from construction businesses.

Nguyen Chi Sang, General Secretary of the Vietnam Association of Mechanical Industry (VAMI), said the biggest problem for enterprises was a lack of orders. /.

The total rice area in 2019 was 506,258 hectares, the whole year's production was over 2,769 million tons

Growth rate of Region I reaches 2.64 percent

According to the Director of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development - Nguyen Thanh Truyen, by the end of 2019, the growth rate of Region I reach 2.64 percent (the plan is 1.5 percent). In agricultural production, except for the difficulty in raising pigs, cultivation and husbandry were all effective. In particular, agricultural production developed towards high quality. Breakthrough program on developing high-tech applications associated with agricultural restructuring (such as mechanization in production, reduction of sowing seeds, use of certified seeds and bio-organic fertilizers, etc.) continued to be highly effective.

In 2019, the total rice area reached 506,258 hectares, the total output was over 2,769 million tons, reaching 100.7 percent of the plan (2.75 million tons); of which, the output of high-quality rice was estimated at 1.37 million tons.

The manufacturing and processing sector continued to play a key role, leading the overall growth of the economy

According to the Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can, although the economic growth rate of the province did not meet the plan, the growth rate of Region II still maintained at a relatively high level (reaching 14.45 percent). This growth was lower than the plan and in 2018 because in recent years, the growth rate of this region was high, contributing greatly to the overall economic growth of the province. Maintaining a high growth rate continuously was very difficult, so the growth of Region II at about 14.5 percent was successful. This success was due to the interest of the provincial leaders in promoting the implementation of the Government's Resolution on improving the business environment, competitiveness, support and development of businesses. Accordingly, in recent years, the provincial leaders have focused on supporting the development of small and medium-sized enterprises, start-ups; reforming administrative procedures; improving the effectiveness and efficiency of state management, etc. For those reasons, the number of domestic and foreign enterprises investing in the province has increased.

Director of Department of Planning and Investment - Huynh Van Son said that in 2019, the province had more than 1,400 newly established enterprises with a registered capital of 18,672 billion VND, an increase of 19.7 percent in the number of enterprises compared to 2018. Up to now, there have been 11,305 registered businesses in the province with a total registered capital of 297,403 billion VND. The province has granted investment certificates to 185 projects with a registered capital of VND 21,408 billion VND, an increase of 34 projects; registered capital increased by 3,260 billion VND over the same period. The province has had 1,910 domestic investment projects which have been licensed with a registered capital of 216,679 billion VND.

Foreign investment in the province also increased. During the year, the province granted investment certificates to 109 projects with a total registered capital of over 320 million USD, an increase of 38 projects but a decrease of 45 million USD of investment capital over the same period. Up to now, more than 1,000 projects have been registered in the province with a total registered capital of 6,166 million USD; in which, 576 projects have come into operation, accounting for 57.0 percent of the total number of registered projects with a total implemented capital of about 3,614 million USD, reaching 58.61 percent of the total registered capital.

The whole province has had 16 operating industrial parks with an area of about 2,277 hectares, the occupancy rate has been nearly 86 percent. Industrial zones have attracted 1,514 investment projects, including 731 foreign investment projects with a total investment of 4,144 million USD and 783 domestic investment projects with a total investment of 84,385 billion VND. Besides, the province has had 21 operating industrial clusters, accounting for over 89 percent. Industrial clusters have attracted 544 projects with a total investment of 15,635 billion VND; of which, 60 foreign direct investment (FDI) projects have had a total investment capital of 209 million USD. 

One of the important milestones in 2019 of the province was the budget revenue exceeding the plan. Accordingly, it was expected that by the end of 2019, the province's revenue reached about 18,000 billion VND, of which, domestic revenue was about 14,500 billion VND, the revenue from import and export taxes was about 3,500 billion VND. According to the Director of the Provincial Tax Department - Cao Van Tao, the economic development speed of the province increased. In particular, the high growth of the industrial manufacturing sector had a positive impact on the revenue collection results; the maintenance of the state budget collection speed became more and more sustainable. In 2019, domestic revenue from production and business activities was still an important revenue, accounting for more than 50 percent of total revenue. When production and business enterprises were stable, this ratio would increase more and more in the coming years. Another highlight of the tax industry in 2019 was that the revenue from foreign-invested enterprises was quite high compared to the estimate.

This was a premise and motivation for economic growth in the coming years. 

The objective of 2020 and the subsequent years is to promote economic restructuring towards improving quality and efficiency; focus on implementing 2 breakthrough programs and 3 key projects; continue improving the investment environment and improving competitiveness; implement the policy of attracting investment; control public investment and off-budget investment in accordance with the provisions of law; focus on mobilizing all investment resources for development; well implement social welfare policies, social welfare, and improve people's lives; continue administrative reform, consolidate and organize the apparatuses to operate stably and effectively in association with the reform of public-service and civil servants, thrift practice and waste combat./.

Vietnamese authorities have joined hands with their partners in Singapore hold the hybrid event at Changi International Airport, aiming to help Vietnamese firms to engage in the promising Halal market.

Participants need to obtain Halal certificates, satisfy the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP), and provide products' instruction in English, according to the Ministry of Industry and Trade's Trade Promotion Agency.

Joining the event, businesses will enjoy free-of-charge exhibition areas, transportation, and business-matching events. Along with communication work, they will receive support to sell their Halal products at Singaporean supermarkets.

This is Vietnam's first Hybrid exhibition in a foreign country, aiming to pilot trade fair in combination with business matching through digital platforms.

The exhibition will last for one week with strict trade measures put in place to ensure safety for the participants.

It is estimated that demand among the Muslim community for products found in Vietnam is about 34 billion USD per year. But, in fact, Vietnam's export of such products to this market has reached only 10.5 billion USD, meaning that more than two-thirds of consumer demand, worth 23.6 billion USD, has been missed.

Every year, about 50 Vietnamese companies are granted halal certifications mainly for seafood, beverages, canned foods, confectionery, vegetarian food and pharmaceuticals products./.

Developing high-tech economic zones is an inevitable direction

Looking back at the investment attraction process of Long An province over the past 20 years, we can draw many good lessons, valuable experiences as well as shortcomings and limitations that need to be overcome to achieve the goal of maintaining taking the leading position in the Mekong River Delta region and making a breakthrough, rising to be a fairly developed province in the Southern key economic region by 2030.

The efforts of solidarity, determination and building a clean and strong political system in the 2015-2020 term of the province have created a key premise, a solid foundation to achieve important and complete achievements. presence on the fields. Outstanding achievements: The average economic growth rate in the 2016-2020 period reached 9.11 percent, reaching the Resolution target (9-9.5 percent); the largest scale of the economy in the Mekong River Delta (GRDP at current prices is about 132,000 billion VND); total export turnover in the period 2016-2020 will reach 25.3 billion USD, maintain the growth rate of 12 percent/year; The annual state budget revenue has all met and exceeded the plan, the average annual revenue growth rate will reach 12.8 percent, by 2020 the scale of budget revenue will reach 1.78 times compared to 2015. Environment investment has improved, the Provincial Competitiveness Index (PCI) is always in the group of "Good" to "Very good", especially in 2018 and 2020 it ranks 3rd nationwide; The PAR Index in 2019 ranks 5th nationwide. By the end of 2020, the province has more than 12,000 operating domestic enterprises operating; attracting foreign investment over 1,000 projects with a total registered capital of 6.6 billion USD.

At the same time, the socio-cultural life has made many progresses; effectively solving pressing social problems. Social security policies were guaranteed and timely. The exciting thing is that over the past time, the material and spiritual life of the people in the province has been constantly improved and improved, the GRDP per capita in 2020 will reach 77 million VND, 1.5 times more than early term; the poverty rate fell below 1.52 percent. Defense - security - internal affairs have been strengthened; external activities expanded and diversified.

In particular, over the past time, due to the sharp and correct leadership of the Provincial Party Committee; the drastic and timely direction and administration of the provincial People's Committee; the synchronous and active participation of the whole political system; The agreement, response and strong support of the people and businesses, Long An province has responded quickly, promptly and effectively to the evolution of the Covid-19 pandemic, preventing external infections from occurring. copper. Gradually restore production and business, strive to achieve at the highest level the socio-economic development goals, targets and tasks in 2020, achieving economic growth (GRDP) 5.91 percent, contributing to the good implementation of the "dual goal" under the direction of the Government, at the same time enhancing and consolidating the people's confidence in the Party and State.

In addition, the strong socio-economic infrastructure has contributed positively to upgrading the transport infrastructure system of the key economic region of the province, promoting the role of regional linkage, creating a premise. attract investment, increase budget revenue and promote socio-economic development of the province.

However, looking back at the picture of investment attraction, there are still many unsatisfactory things, it is easy to see that most of the investment enterprises in the province are small, even micro, medium technology, a few are outdated, only a small percentage have advanced technology. This has the risk of causing environmental pollution and bringing added value to the economy is still low, contributing to the economic development of the province not commensurate with the potentials, advantages and expectations of the province.

In order to overcome these limitations, realizing the people's prosperous aspirations, promoting the experience of :Travel broadens the mind", the province organized a delegation of officials and enterprises to study experience in economically developed localities, attracting good investment. After the trip to Quang Ninh, Hai Phong, Bac Ninh, we have learned a lot of valuable experiences in attracting investment and development. We realize that, in order to develop, provincial leaders must really be determined to "clear the nest for the eagle to land" and will bring along the herd of "baby eagles". From there, forming a developed industrial ecosystem with advanced technology, reducing the risk of environmental pollution and bringing high added value to the economy. When the economy develops well, there will be conditions for investment in culture - society, national defense and security, especially improving people's lives.

Applying that thinking with the solidarity and best efforts of the whole political system, in the first quarter of 2021, Long An province was recognized as the best investment attraction in the country. Long An has attracted large LNG projects from Korean investors GS with a total investment of about 3.1 billion USD; Currently, there are a number of major Korean investors coming to Long An to continue researching investment. Today, the province continues to coordinate with the Korean Embassy in Vietnam to hold a seminar orienting to develop high-tech economic zone with the participation of many large corporations from Korea, the US, Germany and India.

Long An has many potentialities and advantages in attracting investment, with Long An International Port, adjacent to Ho Chi Minh City - the largest economic center in the country. In recent years, the province has been interested in investing in transport infrastructure connecting regions and localities, along with the abundant land fund, the province will propose to the Central to establish a coastal economic zone to form high-tech economic zone of the province. This will open up new pages in investment attraction, socio-economic development of the province.

Development in parallel with environmental protection

The province's determination and efforts are great, reflected in its goals, resolutions, breakthrough programs, and key projects through the recent Party Congress. In order to realize that, the human factor is needed. In the process of industrial development, in addition to improving the quality of human resources to serve industrial development and digital transformation, the province also pays special attention to the issue of sustainable environmental protection. These are two strategic and arduous missions.

Uncle Ho -  President Ho Chi Minh respectfully affirmed: "Officer is the root of all jobs", "All successes or failures are due to good or poor staff". Our Party has affirmed that people are the decisive factor, a key stage of the key. Therefore, in order to successfully convert numbers, there must be "digital people" and "digital government". In order for the industry to develop, there must be good experts and engineers, and a team of workers with high professional qualifications. Recognizing the importance of the above issue, Long An Provincial Party Committee issued a Resolution on training human resources to meet the needs of industrial and agricultural development of the province. At the same time, the Provincial Party Committee asked the heads of all levels and branches to really set an example, have a strong will and determination and must allocate enough budget resources to successfully implement the resolution.

At the same time, the province also advocates sustainable development, economic development goes hand in hand with environmental protection, resolutely not to exchange the environment for development at all costs. All large and small projects invested in the area must be assessed for their environmental impact and committed to environmental protection. The province will give priority to projects with an advanced average technology level or higher, and prioritize environmentally friendly technologies and clean technologies.

Besides focusing on attracting FDI, the province is also very interested in attracting domestic enterprises, to create harmonious competition between enterprises. All businesses are treated warmly - fairly - transparently, supported to quickly settle procedures and enjoy mechanisms and policies in accordance with the law.

The province will focus on improving the effectiveness of the formulation, management and implementation of the planning according to the Law on Planning, focusing on reorganizing the development space in a reasonable manner, making the best use of the linkage advantage, development of urban, industrial and agricultural regions.

Government gives more incentives for agricultural developmentGovernment gives more incentives for agricultural development
Enterprises investing in agriculture and rural areas will be granted with additional incentives in terms of land allocation, vocational training, market expansion, services, scientific and technological applications, and transportation fees.

The Government lately issued Decree 61/2010/ND-CP, stipulating additional preferences for agricultural and rural development.

The Decree will take effect since July 25, 2010. 

The list of preferential sectors includes cultivation, aquaculture, and development of raw materials for processing zones. 

According to the Decree, the Government will exempt or cut 50-70% of fees for land or water surface leased up to 15 years in maximum for agricultural enterprises.

Those enterprises will be given a cut of 50-100% of vocational training fees, 50-70% of advertisement costs, as well as 50-70% of expenditures for participating in exhibitions. In addition, they will have to pay lower costs, from 50% to 100%, for accessing to information about agricultural production.

As reported by the Vietnam Economic Management Review (VEMR), there are around 39,000 enterprises operating in the agricultural sector and rural areas and accounting for 30% of domestic businesses. The figure is relatively low due to poor competitiveness, high risks of natural disasters, and long-term capital refund.  

Hence, the Decree is expected to lure more inflows of investment in the sector and rural areas, benefit peasants and utilize potentials there. 

The new policy will encourage enterprises to pour more investment in perfecting socio-economic infrastructure in rural areas, spurring production activities and services for job generation, renovation and modernization in the countryside.

Efficience of linking production - consumption lemon GlobalGAPEfficience of linking production - consumption lemon GlobalGAP
To help farmers change production methods, switch from traditional farming to the application of advanced science - technology, increase value, increase the competitiveness of agricultural products and create stable output for agricultural product, and so on is the effect from the linkage between GlobalGAP's lemon production and consumption in recent years.

Instead of growing lemons in the traditional way, with little application of science and technology like many other local farmers, Huynh Hau Tien, who lives in Tan Thanh commune, Thu Thua district of Long An province, strongly associates with the Can Tho Fruit Republic One Member Limited Company to produce lemons following GlobalGAP standards for export to the European market right from the early days of converting 10 hectares of inefficient sugarcane land to growing lemons. Accordingly, on an area of 10 hectares of land to grow lemon, Mr. Tien strictly adheres to the global good agricultural practice from selecting seeds, planting, caring to harvest. In particular, he paid special attention to applying sparse planting techniques, minimizing the use of fertilizers, chemical drugs, instead increasing the use of biological drugs and organic fertilizers, and so on, contributing to to ensure that lemons do not have residues of fertilizers, pesticides, qualified and quality exported to the European market - one of the fastidious markets of the world.

VN to establish agro-product trading floor VN to establish agro-product trading floor
Permanent Deputy PM Nguyễn Sinh Hùng has recently agreed to establish Việt Nam’s first agro-products trading floor in the southern city of Kiên Giang.

The plan is one of many Government-backed farming projects to support farmers and boost the country’s agriculture development.

As reported, the agro-products trading floor will be operated in the same way like gold or stock floors. The posted price will be evaluated by appropriate authorities. Posted products must meet quality and quantity standards, therefore, farmers will have better selling price at the floor than at the market. All agricultural products can be posted on the floor.

The floor aims at creating opportunities for farmers to interact directly with their consumers, to better understand the needs and demands of markets, and to sell products at higher prices.

If this establishment is a success, more similar floors will be opened in the near future.

The total retail sales of goods and service revenue in Long An province reached nearly 90,000 billion VND

In 2019, the province's trade and services still maintain stable growth. Goods are abundant and varied in design and type, meeting the needs of consumption. Many convenient stores have been put into operation to serve the shopping needs of the people such as Co.opmart supermarket chain, Bach hoa xanh stores, Vinmart +, SanHàFoodstore, etc. Trade promotion and market expansion are focused on implementation; enterprises and cooperatives actively participate in promoting the province's agricultural products into supermarkets and wholesale markets, especially Ho Chi Minh city businesses at many supply-demand connection programs to ensure the consumption and export of provincial agricultural products.

The end of 2019 and the Lunar New Year are the time when people focus on shopping to welcome Tet. Therefore, the market and commodity prices in the province are forecast to have many fluctuations due to the impact of input material prices; however, supply and demand for goods and services are relatively stable. Smuggling, trade frauds, counterfeit goods, intellectual property and food safety violations are complicated; their tricks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and difficult to control.

The provincial People's Committee requested functional agencies, especially the Department of Industry and Trade to coordinate with local authorities and businesses to proactively monitor and forecast the supply - demand of goods, especially essential goods in management areas to have plans to ensure the supply - demand balance and stabilize the Tet market.

At the same time, the Market Management Department had plans to strengthen inspection and control of goods in the market; strictly handle cases of trading in banned goods, smuggled goods, and goods produced by foreign countries without receipts, resolutely not permit transportation of contraband goods to inland for consumption./.
