In the north there is the Hoanglenshon range (with an altitude up to 3143 m, Fanshipan city); the Chyongshon Mountains stretch along the western border. In the southern part of Vietnam there are highlands and plateaus of Kontum, Darlak, and others; on the coast - lowlands (mainly in the deltas of the Hongha in the north and the Mekong in the south). The immensely extended area is divided into three parts: the northern (Beibu), the southern (Nam Bo) and a narrow belt connecting them, called Chungbo. Most of the plains’ surface is cultivated. In Bach Ma-Khaiwan National Park, wildlife reserves and sanctuaries nature remains untouched.

Vietnam is an agricultural country with a developing industry. Most of industrial enterprises were built with the Soviet assistance. They produce most of the electric power, coal, and machinery. In the south, there are enterprises built with the help of foreign capital - the assembly of electronic equipment, bicycles, and motorcycles. The continental shelf of the country has large oil reserves. Export of crude oil provides the bulk of foreign exchange earnings. Agriculture employs 75% of workers. The main crop is rice.
