Country Report
The article presents information about the economy of Vietnam. Vietnam's economy is expected to continue showing impressive growth over the forecast period. After expanding 8.1% in the first nine months of the year, full-year growth is expected for 2005 of 7.9%; the slight slowdown reflects delayed accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the continued drag on the trade balance of costly oil imports. At the same time, expected accession to the WTO will boost export prospects, underpinning an acceleration of growth to 8.1% in 2006.
