Abstract

The study briefly described the current situation of soybean production in the Mekong River Delta (MRD) by using the policy analysis matrix method (PAM). It revealed that farmers have obtained about 521,000 VND as profit and soybean has a comparative advantage. Especially, we discovered that agricultural policies given by government almost have no positive impacts on farmers. They even reduce the effect of soybean production. By analyzing the sensitivity of a PAM, the study also shown if any of the following forecasts becomes true, soybean production still has a comparative advantage: the decrease of soybean tariff from 15% to 5%, the increase of fertilizer prices of 10%, an increase in exchange rate VND/USD of 10%.
