The exploitation output of Vietnamese ginseng from 2030 will reach about 300 tons/year (the exploitation area is about 1,000 ha/year), ensuring the origin, meeting GACP-WHO standards (good farming and harvesting practices) ) or equivalent.

Investing in and building facilities for preliminary processing and deep processing of products from Vietnamese Ginseng associated with raw material areas, producing in chains, of which about 50% of production facilities meet GMP-WHO quality standards (good manufacturing practice).

- Orientation to 2045:

Developing Vietnamese Ginseng into an international branded commodity with high export value, creating an important source of income for localities, and striving to turn Vietnam into a major ginseng producer in the world.

2. Vietnamese Ginsengs that are preserved, planted, and developed

+ Evaluate Vietnamese Ginseng species distributed in natural forests in the following provinces: Quang Nam, Kon Tum, Gia Lai, Lam Dong, Thua Thien Hue, Nghe An, Lao Cai, Lai Chau, and Dien Bien on: distribution, species (genomic analysis), area, reserve, and proposed planting area fit.

+ Build an in situ conservation area and an ex situ collection garden of Vietnamese ginseng genetic resources in some typical ecological regions with natural distribution, with priority given to Quang Nam and Kon Tum provinces, Lam Dong, Nghe An, and Lai Chau.

+ Build a database system on the conservation and development of genetic resources for Vietnamese Ginseng species and identify suitable planting areas.

- Research, selection, creation, and production of Vietnamese ginseng varieties:

+ Research, select, and breed Vietnamese Ginseng, with a focus on selecting and creating Ngoc Linh and Lai Chau ginseng varieties with high yield, high quality, and resistance to pests and diseases.
