Name:Food Prices, Vulnerability and Food Security in Viet Nam: A UN Perspective
Description:

Viet Nam is, by no means, facing a shortage of food or on the brink of a food security crisis. Agricultural production is very good and Viet Nam is a net exporter of rice and many other commodities. Rice prices rose sharply in late 2007, peaked in June 2008, dropped thereafter but remain higher than in previous years.
