The Emergence of Vietnam as an Emerging Market explores the factors that have contributed to Vietnam’s growth and economic development.
In this video, we delve into the economic and political landscape of Vietnam and its history of economic development.

We also explore the rise of Vietnam’s middle class and consumer market, trade agreements, and the financial and banking industry.
Furthermore, we discuss technological innovation, environmental sustainability, and green growth strategies in Vietnam, as well as the challenges and opportunities for foreign investors in the country.

Chapter 1: The Economic and Political Landscape of Vietnam
Vietnam’s economic and political landscape has undergone significant changes since the country’s unification in 1975. Following the war, Vietnam’s government pursued a centrally planned economy, but by the late 1980s, the country’s economy was struggling. In 1986, the government introduced a series of economic reforms known as doi moi, which aimed to transition the country from a centrally planned economy to a market-oriented one.
Since then, Vietnam has experienced rapid economic growth, averaging around 7% per year. Vietnam’s economic success can be attributed to a number of factors, including a strategic location, a large and young population, abundant natural resources, and a highly skilled workforce. Additionally, Vietnam has implemented a number of policies to attract foreign investment, including tax incentives, streamlined bureaucracy, and the establishment of economic zones.
In terms of politics, Vietnam is a one-party state, with the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) holding a monopoly on political power. The CPV has implemented a series of economic and political reforms, including the transition to a market-oriented economy and a more open society. However, the government continues to exert tight control over the media and restricts political freedoms.
Despite these challenges, Vietnam’s economy continues to thrive, and the government has set ambitious targets for further growth and development. The next chapters of this video will explore the various sectors of Vietnam’s economy and the factors driving its emergence as an emerging market.
Chapter 2: The History of Vietnam’s Economic Development
Vietnam has a long history of economic development, dating back to the Bronze Age when the country was known as Van Lang. Over the centuries, Vietnam has been influenced by Chinese, French, and American colonialism, as well as periods of war and social upheaval.
After the Vietnam War ended in 1975, the country’s economy was in shambles. The government implemented a centrally planned economic system, which led to inefficiencies and poor economic performance. By the mid-1980s, the government realized that significant changes were needed to revive the economy.
In 1986, Vietnam introduced doi moi reforms, which opened up the economy to market forces and foreign investment. The reforms focused on liberalizing agriculture, decentralizing decision-making, and creating a more favorable business environment.
Since then, Vietnam has achieved impressive economic growth, with GDP per capita increasing from $100 in 1986 to over $3,000 in 2021. The country has also diversified its economy, with manufacturing, services, and agriculture all contributing to growth.
Chapter 3: The Role of Foreign Direct Investment in Vietnam’s Growth
Foreign direct investment (FDI) has played a significant role in Vietnam’s economic growth. Since the doi moi reforms, Vietnam has actively pursued foreign investment, offering tax incentives, streamlined bureaucracy, and other incentives to attract investors.
As a result, FDI has accounted for a large share of Vietnam’s total investment, with inflows averaging over $16 billion per year from 2015 to 2019. FDI has primarily flowed into manufacturing, services, and real estate, with countries like South Korea, Japan, and Singapore being the largest investors.
FDI has brought significant benefits to Vietnam, including job creation, technology transfer, and access to global markets. However, it has also brought challenges, such as environmental degradation, social inequality, and the potential for over-reliance on foreign investment.
Chapter 4: The Importance of Manufacturing in Vietnam’s Economy
Manufacturing has played a key role in Vietnam’s economic growth, accounting for around 16% of GDP and 25% of employment. Vietnam has become a popular destination for manufacturing due to its low labor costs, strategic location, and favorable business environment.
Vietnam has developed a number of key manufacturing sectors, including electronics, textiles, and footwear. The country is also becoming a hub for high-tech manufacturing, with companies like Samsung and Intel investing heavily in Vietnam.
Chapter 5: The Rise of Vietnam’s Service Sector
Vietnam’s service sector has also been an important driver of growth, accounting for around 40% of GDP and employing around 35% of the workforce. The service sector includes a range of industries, such as tourism, finance, and retail.
Vietnam has developed a vibrant tourism industry, attracting millions of visitors each year with its natural beauty, rich culture, and historical landmarks. The country is also becoming a hub for financial services, with banks and insurance companies expanding rapidly.
Chapter 6: Vietnam’s Agricultural Industry: Opportunities and Challenges
Despite the growth of manufacturing and services, agriculture remains an important sector in Vietnam, accounting for around 15% of GDP and employing around 25% of the workforce. Vietnam is one of the world’s largest exporters of rice, coffee, and seafood.
However, Vietnam’s agricultural sector faces a number of challenges, including low productivity, environmental degradation, and the impact of climate change. The government is implementing a number of policies to modernize the sector and promote sustainable agriculture.
Chapter 7: Infrastructure Development and Its Impact on Vietnam’s Economy
Infrastructure development has been a key priority for Vietnam, with the government investing heavily in roads, bridges, ports, and other infrastructure. Improved infrastructure has helped to reduce transportation costs, improve connectivity, and attract foreign investment.
Vietnam has made significant progress in infrastructure development, with the World Economic Forum ranking Vietnam 55th out of 140 countries in its 2021 Global Competitiveness Index. However, there is still a need for further investment and improvements, particularly in rural areas and less developed regions.
Chapter 8: Vietnam’s Education and Human Capital Development
Investment in education and human capital development has been a key factor in Vietnam’s economic growth. Vietnam has made significant progress in education, with high levels of enrollment in primary and secondary education, and a growing number of students attending universities.
The country has also prioritized vocational training to develop a skilled workforce to support the growth of manufacturing and other industries. However, challenges remain, such as a skills gap between what the education system offers and what employers need.
Chapter 9: Vietnam’s Economic Integration with the World
Vietnam has actively pursued economic integration with the world, seeking to expand trade and investment ties with other countries. Vietnam is a member of a number of regional and international organizations, including ASEAN, APEC, and the WTO.
Vietnam has also signed a number of free trade agreements, including the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) and the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA). These agreements have opened up new markets for Vietnamese goods and services and facilitated the entry of foreign companies into Vietnam.
Chapter 10: Challenges Facing Vietnam’s Economic Growth
Despite its impressive economic growth, Vietnam faces a number of challenges that could impact its future development. These challenges include environmental degradation, social inequality, corruption, and an aging population.
Vietnam’s economy is heavily reliant on FDI, which could lead to over-dependence on foreign investment and vulnerability to global economic shocks. The country also faces competition from other emerging markets, such as Indonesia and Thailand.
Chapter 11: Opportunities for Vietnam’s Future Growth
Despite these challenges, Vietnam has many opportunities for future growth. The country has a young and growing population, a strategic location in Southeast Asia, and a favorable business environment. Vietnam has also demonstrated resilience in the face of global economic shocks, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
Vietnam is also investing in innovation and technology to drive future growth, with a focus on developing a digital economy and promoting entrepreneurship.
Chapter 12: The Future of Vietnam’s Manufacturing Sector
Vietnam’s manufacturing sector is expected to continue to be a key driver of growth in the future. The country has established itself as a manufacturing hub for electronics, textiles, and footwear, and is increasingly attracting high-tech manufacturing.
Vietnam is also investing in renewable energy and sustainable manufacturing practices to promote long-term growth and reduce its environmental impact.
Chapter 13: The Potential of Vietnam’s Service Sector
Vietnam’s service sector has significant potential for future growth, particularly in areas such as tourism, finance, and e-commerce. The country has a young and growing middle class, which is driving demand for consumer goods and services.

Chapter 14: Vietnam’s Role in the Global Economy
Vietnam’s economic growth has made it an increasingly important player in the global economy. The country is a member of a number of regional and international organizations, and its growing middle class is creating new opportunities for foreign companies.
Vietnam is also becoming an important manufacturing base for multinational corporations, particularly in the electronics and automotive industries. The country’s strategic location in Southeast Asia makes it an attractive destination for companies looking to expand their presence in the region.
Chapter 15: Conclusion and Future Outlook for Vietnam’s Economy
Vietnam has come a long way since the doi moi reforms of the 1980s, and has emerged as one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. The country’s success can be attributed to a combination of factors, including its strategic location, favorable business environment, and proactive government policies.
However, Vietnam still faces challenges as it looks to sustain its economic growth in the future. The country must address issues such as environmental degradation, social inequality, and corruption, while also promoting innovation and technology to drive future growth.
Despite these challenges, Vietnam has many opportunities for future growth, particularly in its manufacturing and service sectors. The country’s growing middle class, favorable business environment, and strategic location in Southeast Asia make it an attractive destination for foreign companies looking to expand their presence in the region.
Overall, Vietnam’s economic success over the past few decades has been remarkable, and the country has the potential to continue to grow and thrive in the future. By addressing its challenges and leveraging its strengths, Vietnam can continue to emerge as an important player in the global economy.
