Starting from converting the policies and laws of the agricultural land in rural areas is marked from Directive no.100 in 1981. The important breakthrough in the land policy has brought great achievements in agriculture and rural development and economic growth in Vietnam over the past 30 years. However, the actual implementation of the policy could not avoid many shortcomings.

From completed studies, the authors have compiled a book: "The land policy for development in Vietnam: Opportunities and challenges". The study used the approach: "Law and Economics", the application of economic principles to legal issues to assess the social impact of economic policies on land for the rural development and proposed 10 recommendations to adjust policy in the future.
