On 29 February 2012, Vietnam Investment Review reported that between 2012 - 2016, Hanoi's city government will provide funding and incentives for investments in science, technology and innovations (STI) that increase food production. These new policies are aimed at increasing production, quality, and food safety. One example of a project meeting these objectives - building food processing plants.

Hanoi's Department of Agriculture and Rural Development will allocate a total of VND 8,442 billion, including VND 3,502 billion to be used for agriculture production and VND 4,830 billion for building fundamental infrastructure in 161 communes.

These funds are targeted to help people in rural areas and "narrow the development gap between rural and urban areas in Hanoi."
