Issue

Vietnam’s private sector has been tasked with taking the country’s economy forward into the future. The business environment is continually improving and further efforts are a prerequisite to the sector fulfilling both its potential and its role in development. The Party and government are both fully on-board, which puts the private sector in a position to rely on its own strengths and do the hard work needed to take Vietnam on the path to global integration.
