The country is reported to hve a steady Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of over 6% since 1991, what is outstanding performance in a stand-alone evaluating of the countries’ growth.
The economy is Vietnam is highly dependent on foreign investment, especially from Asian countries. In the past Russia was a strong investor in Vietnam, however since the collapse of the Soviet Union that invest has been reduced, however even reduced it occupies the 5th place in the list of top investor’s countries in Vietnam.
