Abstract
Doi Moi or renovation is a thorough reformed policy that Vietnam government has promulgated since the 1980s. This policy has had significant impacts on economic growth of the country, especially in agricultural sector. The 1993 Land Law and the introductions of new technology into the field have led to many changes in rural areas in the whole country. BH and DID are two villages in northwestern upland region of the country where Tai and Kinh people live on wet rice as their principal crops. Having different cultural background, these two groups have not adapted to the 1993 Land Law and the introductions of new technologies such as fertilizers, pesticides in similar ways. This study investigates how Tai and Kinh people adapt to new policies, and what are the reasons of their different responses. The study primary evaluates strength and weakness of government agrarian policies.
