||Abstract: ||This thesis tries to find out whether trade has an effect on agricultural productivity in Vietnam case. There are two models to estimate relationship between trade and productivity including national-level model and farm-level model. The time series data of nine agricultural commodities, which is taken from FAOSTAT, is used in national-level model. Farm-level model uses cross section data from VARHS 2010 including 1449 farm household in nine provinces. In both models, yield refers as agricultural productivity. The both models support for a strong positive relationship between trade and yield. The result also indicates that the land, irrigation, human capital, cost of production might be necessary for improve productivity.
