GLF Tu Anh Vu Thanh Presents Research at University of Warwick
On 25 February Global Leader Fellow Tu Anh Vu Thanh presented a paper on “The Political Economy of State-Firm Relationship in Contemporary Vietnam” at the University of Warwick’s Department of Politics and International Studies (PAIS).
Since Doi Moi (Economic Innovation) in Vietnam in 1986, the state-firm relationship in the country has gone through important changes, which have arguably resulted in a radically different political economy system. Tu Anh’s paper traces these changes to show that the state-firm relationship in Vietnam has been transformed from one of a hierarchical nature to state capture. The paper goes on to analyze the political and economic ramifications of the changing state-firm relationship on Vietnam’s contemporary political and economic system.
