Agriculture in Mongolia constitutes 20% of Mongolia's annual gross domestic product and employs 42% of the labor force. Only one per cent of the arable land in Mongolia is cultivated with crops. The agriculture sector therefore remains heavily focused on nomadic animal husbandrywith 75% of the land allocated to pasture, and cropping only employing 3% of the population. Crops produced in Mongolia include corn,wheat, barely, and potatoes.
Animals raised commercially in Mongoliainclude sheep, goats, cattle, horses, camels, and pigs. They are raised primarily fot meat, although goats are valued for their hairs which can be used to produce cashmere.
In 1985 agriculture accounted for only 18.3 % of national income and 33.8 % of the labor force. But agricultural product in mongolia is important because much of mongolia's induustry depends on it.in 1930s Govt began to develop state farms.
In 1950s modern techniques and Soviet assistance improved a lot in agriculture.
Negdels, which concentrated on livestock production,were organized into brigad and then into suuri (bases), composed of several house hold. They adopted the Soviet system of herding. In 1985 the average negdel had 61,500 head of livestock, 438,500 hectares of land, of which 1,200 was plowable. due bto development of state farm, this was restricted.In 1985 the average state farm employed 500 workers.

The constitution of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam formally allows religious freedom. In 2007, Vietnam News reported that Vietnam has six religions recognized by the state : (Budhism, Cathlicism, Protestantism, Islam, Cao dai, and Hoa Hao), Subsequently the Committee for Religious Affairs granted operation registration certificates to three new religions and a religious sect in in addition to six existing religions.Mahayama Budhism first spread from China ti vietnam'sred River delta's around 300 BC.Theravada Budhism arrived from India into the southern Mekong Delta region many years later, between 300-600 AD.
Hoa Hao is a religious tradition based on Budhism and founded in 1939. Roman catholicism first entered the country through portuguese catholic missionariesin the 16th century.
Protestantism was intrduced in 1911..
Although most Vietnamese list themselves as having no religious affiliation, religion as defined by shared beliefs and practices, remains an integral part of Vietnamese life, dictating the social behaviors and spiritual practices of Vietnamese individuals in Vietnam and abroad. The triple religion , referring to the synthetic combination of Mahayana Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism remains a strong influence on the beliefs and practices of the Vietnamese even if the levels of formal membership in these religious communities may not reflect that influence.one of the most notable and universal spiritual practices common to Vietnamese is ancestor veneration, a practice shared with Chinese and most other Asian cultures. Practically all Vietnamese, regardless of formal religious affiliation, have an altar in their home or business where prayers are offered to their ancestors. these offerings and practices are frequently done during important traditional or religious celebrations (e.g. death, birth, marriage etc.), the starting of a new business. Belief in ghosts and spirits is common ; it is commonly believed that failing to perform the proper rituals for one's ancestors will cause them become hungry ghosts.
A 2002 Pew Research Center report claimed that only 24% of the population claimed that only 24% of the population of Vietnam view religion as "very important."
