Approved in Prime Minister’s Decision No.490/QD-TTg on May 7, 2018, it encompasses three primary goals: developing forms of organized production and business, changing the economic structure to improve incomes, and advancing agriculture and production in rural areas.

After more than five years of implementation, Vietnam now has more than 10,300 OCOP products in all 63 provinces and cities.
