Until the peasants showed the way they should follow. Today, Vietnam has become one of the largest exporters of rice and various other food products in the world.
The restoration of a family-based agricultural production system has been the result of a large process of procedures, reforms and decrees. To promote the relatively and equitable structure, which undoubtedly constitutes an indisputable success.
