Rice fields, a familiar view everywhere in South East Asian Countries
Vietnam, Somewhere along Highway Nr.1 between Quy Nhon and Hoi An, March 2010

In the decade after the end of the Vietnam War in 1976 the economy deteriorated. Vietnam was not growing enough rice to feed itself. In 1986 Vietnam had to import 1.5 million tons of rice and starvation conditions were prevalent. At that time the Vietnamese Communist Party announced an abandonment of its Stalinist central planning and collective agriculture. It was replaced by a program of market socialism, called Doi Moi. After ten years Vietnam had become the world's third largest exporter of rice.
