The article presents a summary of the political, business and economic risk assessment for Vietnam. The country's political risk rating has dropped from 86.7 to 80.0 as a result of rapid inflation caused by the ensuing pay-related strikes. The Political Bureau (Politburo) has outlined a number of measures to rebalance the economy and bring inflation back under control. Moreover, the continuing high lending rates in the country has remained to be a leading investment impediment.
