Vietnam’s recent development experience offers an interesting learning opportunity for many African countries. 2016 is the 30th anniversary of the implementation of the country’s Doi Moi reforms, a basket of policies that saw Vietnam’s gross GDP increase by nearly 30 times in the period between 1989 and 2014, from US$6,3 billion to US$186 billion.

Like many African countries, Vietnam faced the challenge of a low-skilled labour force and widespread unemployment. The country was also emerging from a period of protracted conflict, which devastated the country’s economy and infrastructure. This Discussion Paper by Professor Do Duc Dinh provides a detailed internal analysis of the reform process with a specific focus on the policy effects in manufacturing and industry.
