Viet Nam Industrial Investment Report 2011



Understanding the impact of foreign direct investment on industrial development

The UNIDO Industry Investor Survey 2011 and the resulting Viet Nam Industrial Investment Report 2011 constitute an integral part of the first output of the project ‘Platform for Investment Monitoring and Supplier Development Phase I’. These outputs have sought to unearth important aspects of the investment impact of FDI in Viet Nam’s industry. They reveal an industrial sector which is striving to succeed in increasingly competitive global markets. The unprecedented inflows of FDI have had a positive impact on the economy in terms of growth in employment, exports, injection of capital and technology and the attainment of certain spillover effects. Simultaneously, however, increased FDI performance has also magnified the inherent structural economic challenges faced by the Vietnamese economy. The underlying fundamentals of an industrial sector based on labour-intensive, capital and material imports point to a need for a reassessment of the FDI-led export growth model as well as to a heightened urgency to move the country up the industrial upgrading ladder.

Viet Nam Industrial Competitiveness Report 2011


Viet Nam’s efforts to shift from a centrally planned to a market-led economy are paying off. Not only has Viet Nam been one of the fastest growing economies over the last 20 years, but growth has sharply reduced the incidence of poverty. Viet Nam is increasingly integrated into the global economy and is becoming a hub for potential investors nationally and internationally.

But how much has industrialization contributed to Viet Nam’s economic growth and export success? And what is the role of manufacturing and structural change in the country’s economic future? This report makes the case that industrialization is at the core of Viet Nam’s economic growth. It argues that Viet Nam needs an industrial policy aimed at structural change towards high value added manufacturing sectors to sustain current growth levels in the long run.

The report uses UNIDO’s methodology to assess national industrial performance through a series of industry-related dimensions, indicators and indices. This methodology is the fruit of years of research and advisory work carried out under the guidance of the late Professor Sanjaya Lall of Oxford University.

Towards green growth through green industry development in Viet Nam


Green Industry is a sectoral strategy for achieving Green Economy and Green Growth in the manufacturing and related productive sectors. It assures the security of natural resources by alleviating the pressure on already-scarce resources such as water, materials and fuels, contributes to mitigation and adaptation to climate change by reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from energy and non-energy sources and at the enterprise-level, better environmental management and industrial and chemical safety. However, beyond this, achieving Green Industry is much more than just a question of environmental sustainability. It unlocks many more additional development opportunities, as a driver of competitiveness and sustainable business as enterprises improve their resource productivity and environmental performance. While also a catalyst for technological innovation, Green Industry is not just a new paradigm for industrial development, it also offers “triple bottom-line” benefits, serving as a clear strategy with defined pathways for achieving sustainable development.

The Success Story of the Business Registration Reform

The programme for business registration reform in Vietnam has simplified and standardised business registration procedures in Vietnam, thus making the country's registration of businesses less cumbersome, less costly and more efficient.

Through a comprehensive support package co-funded by SECO, NORAD, UNIDO, and the ONE UN Fund Viet Nam, the programme has been implemented since 2008 and recorded remarkable achievements. The average time to register a business was reduced significantly from 15 days in 2007 to 2.3 days in 2018 and registration fee was cut down to VND 100,000/dossier in 2018 (half of the fee in 2007). To date one consolidated procedure for both tax and business registration is in place. The single-point registration services are performed nationwide through the computerized National Business Registration System to ensure that the same level of service is delivered regardless of business location.

Harsh punishment for child offenders doesn’t prevent further criminality

The age at which a child, can be held criminally liable is a controversial issue around the world. Within Viet Nam, this issue is currently being grappled with in the Penal Code amendments. Some argue that a "get tough on crime" approach is necessary to punish children to prevent further criminality.

However, international research shows that because of their developmental stages, labelling and treating children as criminals at an early age can have serious negative impacts on their development and successful rehabilitation.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for World AIDS Day, observed on 1 December


Thirty-five years since the emergence of AIDS, the international community can look back with some pride.  But we must also look ahead with resolve and commitment to reach our goal of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.

There has been real progress in tackling the disease. More people than ever are on treatment.  Since 2010, the number of children infected through mother to child transmission has dropped by half. Fewer people die of AIDS related causes each year.  And people living with HIV are living longer lives.

The number of people with access to life-saving medicines has doubled over the past five years, now topping 18 million. With the right investments, the world can get on the fast-track to achieve our target of 30 million people on treatment by 2030.  Access to HIV medicines to prevent mother to child transmission is now available to more than 75 per cent of those in need.
