The article presents a 2009 political forecast for Vietnam by the Business Monitor International Inc. (BMI). The Communist Parties of Vietnam's repression of political protests through reducing Internet use and jailing bloggers highlights BMI's view that the regime has no intention of moving towards increasing political freedom. BMI sees that the main challenge for the regime will be to shore up economic growth to avoid public discontent with one-party rule.
