The Anatomy and Dynamics of Small Scale Private Manufacturing in Vietnam
Abstract: The private manufacturing sector has been called upon to
play a key role in the transformation and development of the Vietnamese
economy since the launching of market oriented reforms a decade ago.
Drawing on a comprehensive survey in 1997 of some 500 non-state
manufacturing enterprises in Vietnam, the present study provides an
in-depth analysis of the economic and operational characteristics of the
enterprises in this sector. Their development track and growth constraints,
linkages with other sectors of the economy, and role as a source of
employment and income generation are among the aspects examined in
particular detail. The analysis of the dynamics of this sector is based on
a comparison of the results of the present survey with those of an almost
identical survey undertaken in 1991.
