Economic Growth and Employment in Vietnam

Author: David Lim - Professor Emeritus of Economics at Griffith University and President of the Technological and Higher Education Institute of the Vocational Training Council of Hong Kong.

by Ngoc Anh

Vietnam has enjoyed significant economic success since the implementation of its “doi moi” reforms, including rapid growth in GDP, exports and foreign and domestic investment, and a shedding of poorly-performing State-owned enterprises. Despite this, however, the economic situation for many ordinary people in Vietnam is fragile, with income only just above the poverty line, and unemployment is high, especially among the young. Inflation is also high and the State-owned sector remains large, with much of it still performing badly.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the current economic situation in Vietnam. It outlines the state of the economy, paying special attention to employment, discusses government policies, including those on trade and integration with the global economy, and concludes by assessing the key challenges facing Vietnam’s economy going forward.

The book has 208 pages and is divided into four parts. The first part is economic and non-economic performances, including economic performances, human development performances, and employment performances. The second focuses on the determinants of employment growth, which include macro-economic policies, trade policies, globalisation, State-owned enterprises, and the business regulatory framework. Demand for skilled human resources, higher education and technical-vocational education and training are included in the third part, with human resources and economic development, and the final part is concluding remarks.

The book is now available at amazon.com.
