Vietnam has an equivalent area to half of Spain by it doubles our country in number of inhabitants, which turns it into one of the most populated countries in the world. Its economy highly depends on agriculture, where 80% of its population work having rice as its main crop. CODESPA's project in Vietnam, a Spanish private NGO running for 25 years now, is aimed to improve and solve problems for agriculture resulting from mass rice production. We travel with them to Yen Bai, a province in northern Vietnam.
