Changes in the agricultural structure under the Doi Moi policy in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam

Viet Nam



After 1988, in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam, the differentiation of farmers made rapid progress under the market-oriented economy, introduced by the Doi Moi policy. Some farmers have expanded their farm size rapidly. Others have reduced their farm size and finally became landless. However, medium or small-scale landowner’s have attempted to stabilize their household economy by introducing diversified farming. In future diversified farming will be reorganized on a community basis.
