Project Description: Vietnam has improved dramatically its economic, political, and social position in the international playground, thanks to the reforming policies of the government. Twenty years ago, also ten years after Vietnam War had ended, Viet Nam’s economy experienced no grow, whereas, its neighbors such as Japan, Singapore were getting richer and richer. Vietnam‘s leaders realized problems and also found the solutions by observing the world economic growth. Opening the country for foreign investment, reducing government control and affect in the economy, pursuing export-led and market economy, and integrating with the regional and international communities have been the solutions or the keys for economic development of Vietnam since 1986. Diplomacy has contributed a great deal to carry out those solutions. For example, Vietnam was able to join ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations) due to the work of diplomats and friendly diplomatic policies. Likewise, being a member of WTO (World Trade Organization) has helped Vietnam experience exceptional economic growth. Therefore, diplomacy plays an important role to take Viet Nam to a higher position in the international arena, especially in the world markets. With strategic diplomatic policies, Vietnam has walked confidently on the path to prosperity. We worked on this project in order to provide and let other know about how Vietnam has used diplomacy as a tool to serve it economic interest.
