Vietnam Overview

Viet Nam has made great progress since it engaged in 1987 on a course of market reform known as doi moi, or renovation. The reforms achieved impressive results, including growth rates that for a time were amongst the highest in Asia and the reduction of poverty from more than 70% of the population to 35%

Viet Nam has made great progress since it engaged in 1987 on a course of market reform known as doi moi, or renovation. The reforms achieved impressive results, including growth rates that for a time were amongst the highest in Asia and the reduction of poverty from more than 70% of the population to 35%. Today Viet Nam's growth rates remain among the highest in the region (second only to China). Its membership of ASEAN in 1995 and of APEC in 1998 have done much to restore Viet Nam's international credibility, but are also serving to accelerate the process of regional economic integration with all the difficult restructuring this involves.

Viet Nam is making the transition from a centrally controlled command economy to one which is more outward looking, more efficient, and more competitive. Viet Nam's population and resource base is considerable.
