The paper can be downloaded as separate chapters, if wished. Chapters 2 and 7 may provide most interest. Chapter 2 looks at the future of Asia to 2025 and Chapter 7 at “Operating in and connecting to growing Asian markets”.

Sustaining Vietnam’s growth: the productivity challenge

From the McKinsey Global Institute  comes this February 2012 report “Sustaining Vietnam’s growth: the productivity challenge“.  In the preface the authors note that although Vietnam has made significant progress with its economy since the 1980s “today the economy faces complex challenges that require a transition to a productivity-driven growth trajectory”.

The report outlines the reasons for Vietnam’s success to date , and the challenges it now faces.  The report also outlines a four-point agenda for sustaining growth and its implications for companies.  A comprehensive bibliography is included.
