A Resolution on Sustainable and Climate-Resilient Development of the Mekong Delta of Viet Nam has been approved based on the Mekong Delta Plan developed in 2013 by The Netherlands. This resolution foreseen in a severe agricultural transformation based on sustainable value chain development.
In 2019 the prime ministers of Vietnam and The Netherlands have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on further cooperation in the Mekong Delta by developing an Agricultural Transformation Program to steer and coordinate the process. This transformation should mainly be private sector driven and provides business opportunities for Netherlands in agriculture, water, circular economy and (agro)logistics.
