Name:Taking advantage of the Demographic Bonus in Viet Nam: Opportunities, challenges and policy options
Description:

Based on data from the population and housing Censuses in 1979-2009, as well as population projections, the aim of this report is to analyze changes in the age structure of the Vietnamese population in the past and the future. The report further focuses on the opportunities but also on the challenges presented by the current ‘demographic bonus’ period. Suggestions are made with regard to four main policy areas: (i) education and training; (ii) labour, employment and human resources; (iii) population, family and health; and (iv) social protection. The report aims to provide a thorough and comprehensive review and analysis of the issues, and provide tentative recommendations for policy makers and planners in order to maximize the potential advantage of the demographic bonus period.
