Investment policy reform in Viet Nam


The government of Viet Nam, in partnership with the OECD and ASEAN, is undertaking a second Investment Policy Review as part of an active programme of investment policy reforms.

This review will assess the investment climate in Viet Nam, including the institutional and legislative framework for investment. It will focus on policy options in the areas of investment policy, investment promotion and facilitation, responsible business conduct, infrastructure and corporate governance, and will propose measures to help boost both foreign and domestic investment.

This review is taking place within the framework of the ASEAN-OECD Investment Programme, and follows on from the country's first comprehensive investment policy review in 2009.
