Vietnam’s economic progress over the past decade has been remarkable, and the country was poised to deepen its integration into the global market after successfully gaining WTO membership at the end of 2006. With the world’s economy beginning its downward spiral in 2007 and no end yet in sight, Vietnam is having to institutionalize market mechanisms while responding to unprecedented global uncertainty. The Asia Foundation is pleased to focus on Vietnam in its upcoming Asian Perspectives seminar, with the participation of two influential thinkers reflective of a new generation of intellectuals in Vietnam and the Foundation’s Vietnam country representative. The speakers will provide insights into key challenges facing Vietnam’s economy, legal reform and governance, and important factors in U.S.-Vietnam relations.
