Reaching for the Dream: Challenges of Sustainable Development in Vietnam

Melanie Beresford, Angie Tran

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Transition economies allow the study of fundamental questions about the nature of markets. How do they arise and do they necessarily follow the same modus operandi as markets in other countries? How does the opening of the economy to global market influences affect the process of institutional change? This book focuses on the differentiated ways in which the double transition in Vietnam, from central planning and from under-development, affects various sectors of the population.
