This study investigates the influence of agricultural expansion, technological innovation, and forest cover on Vietnam's economic development. To accomplish this, the research considers data from 1990 to 2020. Empirical estimation utilizes the Augmented Dickey-Fuller (ADF) test for unit root testing, the Johansen Juselius test for co-integration, and the Fully Modified Ordinary Least Square (FMOLS), Dynamic Ordinary Least Square (DOLS), and Canonical Co-integration Regression (CCR) for long run coefficient estimation. In CCR, FMOLS, and DOLS regressions, the study reveals a significant and positive impact of forest cover and technological innovations on economic development, whereas agriculture growth has no significant impact on economic development in Vietnam across all three specifications. The study recommends that the government formulate and implement stringent policies to preserve forest wealth and promote research and development activities to achieve sustainable economic development.

Keywords:Technological innovations; agriculture growth; forest cover; economic development; FMOLS; DOLS; Canonical Co-integration regression.
