Thai Binh is a coastal province, with a natural area of over 1,500 km2 and a population of over 1.8 million, located in the Southeast of the Red River Delta, in the economic corridor of the North Delta; having a convenient road, inland waterway and sea transport systems which are favorable for economic exchange and development, etc.

It is the land formed mainly by the sedimentation of alluvium of the rivers, together with the strengthening dikes, sea encroachment and agriculture production of many generations, Thai Binh now proves to be a very potential province having many advantages in agricultural development, processing industry of agricultural product and support industries agricultural service. Thanks to its flat topography, dense river system, fertile and vegetable soil, four season climate, 54km long coastline, over 250km2 tidal flats with diversified fishery resources; hard-working and dynamic inhabitants with a tradition and a high level of cultivation to access and adapt to new technical advances and technologies, etc. In addition, Thai Binh is also endowed with sand dunes and pure coastal mangrove swamps by the nature, which are recognized by UNESCO as the core zone of the biosphere reserve area of the wetlands in the red river delta; it is the province having many famous traditional craft villages and unique garden villages; cultural and historical works which are ranked at national level and especially national level, hundreds of traditional festivals which are preserved and developed - those are very favorable conditions for the development of ecological tourism, countryside experience tourism, spiritual culture in the agricultural production and rural areas in the province.

With the above potentialities and advantages, from ancient times to the present, Thai Binh is always considered the key agricultural production area of the Red River Delta and the whole country. When the country was at war, the level of science and technology was still backward, the conditions of cultivation were very difficult ... Thai Binh rose to be the first leading locality of the whole country and the North, reached 5 tons of paddy/ha, along with the development of the patriotic and revolutionary tradition of the heroic homeland, Thai Binh always completed excellently the task of troop delivery, worthily contributing the human strength and property to the resistance war, national liberation and national defense. When the country was in peace and entered the innovation period, Thai Binh continued to be a pioneer in the movement of construction of electricity lines, roads, schools and stations; solidify traffic and interior field irrigation and it is now in the forefront of construction of new rural areas and supplies clean water to the rural area throughout the province.

Grasping thoroughly and implementing the guideline of the Party and State on the restructuring of agricultural production in combination with construction of new rural areas. In the past years, levels, industries and localities in the province have focused on building, completing the planning of production areas, field planning and "land consolidation and conversion" in all communes and towns; overcoming part of the small, dispersal situation on the paddy fields of each household; interior field traffic and irrigation systems are invested and upgraded; mechanizing and applying technical advances to agricultural production are further promoted; the big field construction movement has achieved positive results. Up to now, there are over 70% of level 1 canals and interior field traffic systems have been strengthened; total land preparation and more than 70% of harvesting are done mechanically; nearly 300 of large fields with area of ​​over 13,000ha has been constructed and developed, along with many farms, large-sized household farms, advanced and modern technology; the productivity of rice and all crops are at high level compared to the average of the whole country and other provinces in the region. At the same time, Thai Binh has attracted nearly 100 investment projects in agricultural and rural areas with the total investment capital of nearly VND10,000 billion, creating more jobs, increasing incomes and improving the physical and spiritual life of the people.

However, the province’s current agricultural production method is still generally traditional: the scale of production is small; cultivation area is dispersive; the output of agricultural products is unstable; the abuse of chemical fertilizers and pesticides in production is still widespread, greatly affecting the quality and value of agricultural products. In order to overcome the above limits, the guideline of provincial Committee of the Party, People's Council and People's Committee is to continue to promote the restructuring of agriculture in direction of commodity production and sustainable development; intensify the attraction of organizations and individuals (especially big enterprises and groups) to invest in hi-tech agricultural production in the value chain from production to processing and consumption of products to increase the value of agricultural products, income and people’s living standard. Accordingly, Thai Binh focused on 5 strategic breakthroughs in agricultural production, including: development and replication of high-value and clean agricultural production models in ecological regions; enhance the building of hi-tech agricultural models; actively call for and attract investment in the construction of industrial parks and complex in service of agriculture; pay attention to the training of managers and laborers with technical and professional skills to serve the agricultural production and rural construction and development according to new requirements; at the same time, develop the type of experience tourism, ecological tourism, history, culture, spirit in the agricultural and rural areas of the province. In order to conduct the above five breakthroughs, the province focused on directing the implementation of three major solutions: Focusing on reviewing, adjusting and supplementing agricultural and rural development planning (especially the planning of agricultural land use); promoting the implementation of land accumulation, attracting investment in the development of clean agriculture and goods chain production on the basis of compliance to the applicable regulations of law; intensify propaganda and mobilization, create a common consensus of all levels, industries and classes in implementation.

With such guideline, Thai Binh is enhancing the land accumulation in form of mobilizing people who have fields but not have production demands to voluntarily authorize the local government to sign contracts with organizations and individuals who have demands and financial condition, scientific and technological potentials for concentrated agricultural production with the duration of land lease, rental and payment method as agreed between the lessee and lessor on the basis of conformity  with applicable regulations of law. By this mechanism and method, up to now, the province has mobilized over 7,000ha of agricultural land and attracted 5 big economic groups (TH Group, Truong Hai Group, Loc Troi Group, Geleximco Group and Hoa Phat Group), and many other businesses who have been investing and developing agricultural production in the province. These are the key factors and forces contributing to the restructuring of the province's agriculture towards commodity production, applying high technology and clean technology to create safe products, meeting the demand for domestic consumption and export.
