Vietnam's New Socio-economic Development Strategies Towards 2010

Outline

In 2006, Vietnam will cerebrate 20 years of success under the Doi Moi reform. While Vietnam has achieved rapid economic growth with average annual GDP growth rate above 7%, many challenges remain. They include SOE reform, administrative reform, human resource development and environmental protection, all of which are necessary for the further pursuit of "quality growth." It is predicted that the five years from 2006 to 2010 will be a period in which changes in Vietnam's external economic relations will bring about various transformations in the socio-economic, administrative and political spheres. Vietnam is undergoing a process of institution-building in order to adapt to the new external economic conditions.

The principal objective of this research is to review the contents and the processes of formulation of new laws, resolutions, regulations, treaties and agreements from the end of 2005 to 2006. The resolution of the 10th Congress of the Vietnam Communist Party in April 2006 is among the most important subjects to be reviewed in this research. We will attempt to analyze the directions of the Party, as well as the Government, toward future development. By doing so, the research aims to provide insights into the prospects and challenges that Vietnam will face in the coming years.
