Workshops and Policy Consultations on Vietnamese industries
31 March 2003


The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and National Economics Univ (NEU) hosted two workshops (textile & garment, software) and three policy consultations (steel (MOI, VSC), tariffs (MOF), and electronics (MPT)) in Hanoi late March. Vice Ministers of MOI and MPT, and NEU rector/vice rectors took part in the workshops where Prof. K. Ohno acted as a chairperson.

These discussions were part of our effort to improve analysis and policy proposals as Vietnam liberalizes trade through AFTA, USBTA and WTO. From now on, we will summarize policy proposals so far and will hold another round of policy discussions in September 2003. For the current summary of proposals, see the GRIPS-hosted site "Vietnam's Industrialization Strategy in the Age of Globalization".

Our workshops were featured in Vietnam Investment Review (31-3-03) and Saigon Times (1-4-03).
