According to the statistics from the General Statistics Office, the growth rate of AFF production value in the first six months was estimated at 3.1%.

The GDP growth rate of the AFF sector in the first six months was relatively high, reaching 3.07%, with agriculture increasing by 3.14%, forestry increasing by 3.43%, and fisheries increasing by 2.77%.
In terms of export markets, China, the US, and Japan continue to be the three largest export markets for Vietnamese AFF products.

The agricultural and rural sector continues to undergo a strong transformation from agricultural production to agricultural economy, promoting restructuring towards eco-friendly agriculture and circular agriculture.
Challenges and difficulties arising from the impact of input material prices for agricultural, forestry, and fisheries production, potential outbreaks of plant and animal diseases, unpredictable weather conditions, more severe El Nino with intense heat, water shortage risks for AFF production, and forest fires in many areas are still at high levels. These factors will impact production and business, requiring the entire sector to make efforts, concentrate resources, seize opportunities, overcome difficulties and challenges, and effectively implement the set goals and solutions to successfully complete the set targets.
