In the aftermath of the War in Vietnam, the central goal of the central leadership was to develop, rebuild, and modernize the nation. Implemented in December 1986, the Moi Doi (translated as “renovation”) policy was a continuation of these progressive goals (Goscha 2016; Quyen 2019), ushering in a transition from a centrally planned to a market-oriented economy. However, the Doi Moi failed to solve the challenge of improving the limited growth observed in rural areas in comparison with their urban counterparts. Due to the government’s failure to entice private investment due to systemic structural restrictions in the Doi Moi program, poverty rates did not decrease in rural areas as much as they did in urban areas. Additionally, no compensation policies were in place to address this type of inequality and inequity of investment capital flow.
