According to VN Cashew
Association (Vinacas), during the period of economic integration VN deeper
opens many opportunities as well as create a series of new challenges for both
businesses and cashew farmers.

emergency state mechanisms and policies to support the sustainable development
of the cashew sector in the near future ...
1. CORPORATE SOLUTIONS SUPPORT
Over 90% of businesses which
currently are small and medium-competitiveness remains limited and vulnerable
when the market is fully open. Therefore, this sector enterprises needed
effective policies related to the field of taxation, brand building, promotion
Vinacas suggested early decrees
and circulars guiding the Law on Export - import amended on the basis of the
tax exemption on raw materials imported for production or processing of export
goods. The fact that the current domestic production only meets 50% of demand
processing (from 1.3 to 1.4 million tonnes), and despite the efforts of the
whole agricultural sector, the production is difficult to rapid development in
the next 10 years. Therefore, this sector will continue to import more than 50%
of raw materials for processing in service.
Currently, the value added tax
(VAT) applicable to products deep processing of cashew nuts from 5-10%
depending on the item. However, in fact the state can not collect this amount
but the reimbursement procedure to take a long time, wasting money for both the
State and enterprises.
Therefore, the request for
exemption from VAT for the individual products deep processing (things fried,
roasted salted, roasted wood, which sawabi, spiced, laced honey, confectionery
articles ...) to support businesses consume domestic and export products.
This policy will encourage
enterprises to invest more deep processing, more competitive, price for
domestic and export markets is definitely better ... which can stimulate deep
processing rate of 20% by 2030 aligned to the development of MARD.
