Competition Distortions Dossier

The quarterly Competition Distortions Dossier is not an analytic and exhaustive research but rather a collection of articles and small analysis based on reliable published sources. It not only covers reforms and policies that the Government of Vietnam have put in place in the period which is likely to have an impact on the competitive process but also deals with cases of violations of the above-mentioned laws and regulations.

The updated figures and analysis on the macro economy, trade and investment, competition and regulation given in this paper, though inadequate and unclassified, would help the readers with more insight into the context of the ASEAN countries, especially regarding how these countries are striving in the face of the global crisis.
