Identify the Nature and Causes of Two Major Economic Problems Facing Vietnam
Vietnam's economic performance remains well bellow its potential. A return to rapid economic growth is unlikely, without a recovery in foreign investment. Foreign investors will most likely remain on the sidelines until the government speeds up economics reforms.
The best and quickest method to vastly increase foreign currency in Vietnam is to open America's vast markets to Vietnam's manufacturing goods. With bilateral trade agreement approved by Congress, lower tariffs under Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status will be in force and the American dollars will start to arrive rapidly.
Hanoi does deserve credit for a trade agreement, the opening of a small stock market in Ho Chi Minh City, and less red tape for new businesses getting a licence. The economic management team is just as intrusive and corrupt but more cautious than their Chinese neighbours.
