Objective 1: Establish empirically the level of market demand for commercial and traditional quality attributes of pork in Vietnam, characterise these attributes and validate any associated significant price differentials and their determinants.
Objective 2: Compare input supply and services arrangements and output marketing arrangements between smallholder pig raisers selling into higher priced market outlets versus those selling into lower priced ones, if and how this is changing, barriers to smallholder access to these, and their impact on income.
Objective 3: Characterise the structure and conduct of the input and service providing firms and organisations and pig market, and compare the geographical distribution of and access to these inputs and services by different types of pig producers, and identify smallholder constraints to entry into higher value market chains.
Objective 4: Assess the potential impact of selected institutional, technology and policy options for increasing the access of smallholder pig producers to improved inputs and services and accessing the high value supply chains under current market-oriented conditions.
Objective 5: Promote awareness and uptake of the pro-poor policy, institutional and investment options emerging from the project among stakeholders, decision makers, investors and market actors in the pig industry in Vietnam.
