Abstract

Vietnam's meteoric rise to become one of the world's largest coffee producers in world-record time has been matched by equally fast changes in policies and market structure. It has moved from a planned economy to a much more open market orientation and become one of Asia's fastest-growing economies. While many benefits can be attributed to the coffee sector's growth, there are also questions about how equitable the socioeconomic impact has been and about the overall sustainability of the sector. This paper offers a thorough look at the functions and trends of the sector within the enlightening context of its history and fundamental structure. It also includes many new calculations and data tables for production, export, acreage planted, value, and more.

Keywords: Vietnam, coffee, small producers, policies, market structure, planned economy, socioeconomic impact, sustainability
