This is a more former academic research study about Vietnam's
general investment atmosphere. Nick's research is quite in line

Western commentators or authority asking Vietnamese
government to let the country be more opened in order to stimulate
trade and commerce. Vietnam is indeed enjoying healthy growth
since it opened up for foreign trade two decades ago. However,

unnoticed, it is always needed to strike the balance between
development and social cohesiveness.
