  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   VM2022-0073

This report provides updated information about the adoption of agricultural biotechnology in Vietnam. Since approving all outstanding applications for food and feed use in August 2021, Vietnam has not resumed its regulatory process for acknowledging and reviewing new applications. Biotech corn area has increased to 180,000 hectares, but no new cultivation approvals for commercialization have been issued since 2016. As of October 2022, Vietnam made no changes to its regulatory system for agricultural biotechnology. The country remains a major importer of biotech crops and products, including soybeans, corn, distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS), soybean meal, and cotton.
