Facing various challenges in agricultural sector such as decrease agricultural lands, shrinking labor supply, low agricultural productivities and food safety, the government of Vietnam has recently introduced a number of incentive policies for promoting high-tech agriculture to ensure the sustainable growth of the agriculture. However, the number of hi-tech agricultural enterprises in Vietnam remains modest and the high-tech agricultural products contribute a small share of the total. The analysis results show that the current policies on high-tech agriculture have limitations such as unspecific definition and criteria for determining the high-tech projects, complicated procedures to access to the preferential loan, unspecific subsidies on human training, etc.,. For better promoting the high-tech agriculture in Vietnam in the future, the incentive policies should diversify the capital sources for high-tech agriculture, specify the definition and criteria for the high-tech projects, provide the specific guidance and subsidies for human resource training and simplify the procedures for better access to the preferential loans for high-tech agriculture.
