Harvard Political Review;Summer2012, Vol. 39 Issue 2, p26
The article discusses reasons for economic growth in Vietnam and those which can affect its growth in future. It states that its economic growth started when the country adopted Doi Moi policies in 1986, which encouraged capital flows, expanding agricultural exports and lowering tariffs. In 2000 it eliminated red tape associated with private companies. It highlights that its growth can be hampered due to high levels of inflation and massive control of the Communist government over economy.
