Vietnamese businesses are pumping more investment in agriculture, forestry and fishery abroad in a bid to expand their markets and reduce production and transport costs.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) reported that local investors have injected a total of 2.5 billion USD in 150 agro-forestry-fishery projects abroad, accounting for 20.5 percent of the country’s total foreign investment capital.

The investors’ major destinations are Laos and Cambodia, where their projects have primarily been involved in wood processing, rubber plantation and latex exploitation.

Vietnamese businesses are also present in other Southeast Asian nations, China and some South African nations under the South-South Cooperation Programme.

The Vietnam Rubber Group (VRG) is one of the four leading Vietnamese investors abroad, as well as the military telecommunication group Viettel, the Vietnam National Chemical Group (Vinachem), and the Vietnam National Oil and Gas Group (PVN).

The VGR intends to pour 1 billion USD into rubber plantation projects overseas until 2015. Approximately 400 million USD has already been disbursed to date.

As of early this year, the group has grown 100,000 hectares of rubber trees in Laos and Cambodia . Its eight more projects involving an additional 27,000 hectares are currently underway in Laos .
