The article reports that Vietnam will become an increasingly attractive destination for foreign investors in the years ahead, given the country's rapid economic growth and strengthening ties with the international community. This is largely due to the government's advancement of reforms designed to liberalize the economy, in preparation for membership of the World Trade Organization. These reforms will help to modernize Vietnamese enterprises and make them stronger, and are an encouraging sign of a more welcoming attitude to foreign involvement.
