This video highlights the role of the IMF in encouraging the increased openness of the Vietnamese economy and the positive impact this had on Vietnam's economic development.  

The Doi Moi reforms of the 1980s were part of a process of transition to a market economy, and helped generate growth of up to 7% per annum. It was a remarkable development story.
