Unit 4 Macro: Growth and Development in Vietnam
This blog brings together study resources on growth and development issues for the emerging Vietnamese economy. After many years of rapid growth, the socialist-oriented transition economy is entering a slowdown phase with growth of less than 5% in part because the boom in cheap low-value added manufacturing built on low wages is hard to sustain. Other economists point to endemic inefficiency among state-owned enterprises as a key factor holding back potential growth in a country once described as "little China".
One bright spot is that Vietnam has surpassed Brazil to become the largest coffee exporter in the world.
