I. INTRODUCTION

After 20 years of economic reform, Vietnam has recorded remarkable achievements in economic growth, especially in agriculture and rural sector. New policies of the government have helped removing the institutional dependences and promoted resources mobilisation to serve for the country’s social-economic development. The private sector has become more dynamic with development of different kinds of enterprises, including small and medium ones (SMEs). The recent studies indicate that SMEs play a crucial role in tackling new difficulties and challenges encountered by the rural and agricultural sector through: (i) creating momentums to enhance the growth of highly commercial-based agriculture; (ii) generating more employment for rural labor; (iii) improving incomes and living standards of the population; and (iv) providing supports for transforming the rural economic structure.

Therefore, the project “Study for policy recommendations to support for development of small and medium enterprises in agriculture sector” (phase 2 and 3) "sponsored by AECID and implemented Institute of Policy and Strategy for Agriculture and Rural Development has been designed to provide policy recommendations to facilitate the growth of agricultural and rural SMEs in Vietnam so as to generate more employment for rural labor, increase rural incomes and promote the competitive power of enterprises.

In the context that urbanization process is speeding up in many areas in the world, consumption power of urban people is increasing very fast; clean, high quality agricultural products become more and more important. This requires the restructuring of agricultural production from traditional mode to urban demand-oriented agriculture. Agricultural production is reorganized along the smart value chain including the links of production – processing – logistics and storages – distribution, trade – research & development. In this smart chain, rural enterprises and farmers are considered the backbone and main beneficiaries that need to be taken care . This kind of modern model is known in a number of countries in the world (the Netherland, China and India) under the name of Agropark. This model is firstly introduced in MARD since 2009. This is the first stage of development this model to be tested in a Hanoi sattelite area.
