Vietnam's Transforming Economy and WTO Accession
"[This book] digs below the surface of Vietnam's often chaotic economy and suggests changes that would bring it in line with current world trade norms (South African Journal of International Affairs).
About the publication
The unilateral and regional ASEAN and now APEC) trade and investment liberalizations pursued by Vietnam during recent years have begun transforming the economy. The next logical step is to join the World Trade Organization, an application for which was submitted in 1995. The WTO legal bindings will give traders and investors increased confidence in the reform programme. This book outlines what the WTO accession process involves, what policies Vietnam will have to change, and what the economic effects will be, particularly on rural development.
