Michael Kirk and Tuan Nguyen
Reforming economy-wide policies
Key period: 1988-1993
Geographic region: Vietnam
The intervention: Vietnamese land tenure policy reforms that were part of its wider economic reforms under the Doi Moi program enabled the country’s transition towards a market economy. The decollectivization of agricultural production and improvement of land tenure security—along with the liberalizing of markets and promotion of new economic incentives—played a critical role in accelerating agricultural growth, increasing food security, and reducing poverty throughout the country. Between 1986 and 2005, Vietnam’s agricultural growth rate averaged 3.8 percent per year, and Vietnam became a major global exporter of rice, coffee, and other crops during the period.
