May 17 – The new issue of Vietnam Briefing Magazine, titled Vietnam’s Provinces, Regions and Key Economic Zones, is out now and immediately available as a complimentary PDF download on the Asia Briefing Bookstore.
While not a large country in terms of area, Vietnam’s longitudinal breadth and variations in terrain allow the country to utilize its topographical advantages to simultaneously support a wide range of industries.
Vietnam can generally be geographically divided on three levels: provincially, regionally (according to the eight regions defined by the General Statistics Office of Vietnam) and in terms of the three Key Economic Zones (Northern, Central and Southern) defined by economic development plans launched in 2004.
In this issue of Vietnam Briefing Magazine, we discuss the industries and economy of Vietnam’s three levels of geographic divisions from the perspective of a potential foreign investor.
In this issue:
- A Look at the 2012 Vietnam Provincial Competitiveness Index
- An Update on Vietnam’s 3 Key Economic Zones
- Comparison of Vietnam’s Eight GSO-Defined Regions
Vietnam’s Provinces, Regions and Key Economic Zones is out now and temporarily available as a complimentary PDF download on the Asia Briefing Bookstore.
