Hybrid rice has been introduced to Vietnam for more than 10 years with remarkable increase of area, from 11000 ha in 1992 up to about 600000 ha in 2006. Hybrid rice has contributed significantly to food security for many households, especially in Northern mountainous and Central provinces of Vietnam. However, at present hybrid rice research and development in Vietnam remain much constraint need to be solved by comprehensive measures with strong participation and linkage by stakeholders. There have been 4 driving forces defined influencing to development of hybrid rice in Vietnam include the support from Government, hybrid rice research capacity of local Institutes, hybrid rice seed production capacity of local seed companies and hybrid rice seed quality control. This paper has developed scenarios and analyzed these driving forces in order to propose strategic solutions for sustainable development of hybrid rice in Vietnam.
