About the Book: Incorporating current research and extensive technical analysis by leading economists from both the United States and Vietnam, this collection of original papers seeks to clarify what further steps are needed so that Vietnam can flourish. It analyzes the dramatic transformation of Vietnam's economy during the 1990s and its prospects for the future as the pace of reform has slowed. The three main sections of the book discuss Vietnam's turbulent history, recent economic reforms, and the country'e emerging role in the world economy and geopolitics. Individual chapters examine a myriad of issues, including specific reforms in agriculture, banking, and tax policy, as well as the attempts to create a business-oriented legal structure, the development of foreign trade and a viable balance of payments, and U.S. policy reactions to Vietnam's development in the last decade.
