This thesis examines the agricultural co-operative sector in Vietnam, within the context of moving from a centrally planned economy to a market-oriented system. The research used a qualitative methodology. Although co-operative development and promotion have enjoyed the support of the Vietnamese Government and other stakeholders, various internal and external inhibitors have acted to constrain the progress and optimization of opportunities that co-operatives present, especially in terms of management capacity, political intervention, member participation, credit service, and marketing service provision. Recommendations are made aimed at improving Vietnam's co-operatives' ability to create and sustain value-adding activities for the members.
