This project responds to the SDG’s call for a strengthening of data collection and capacity-building in Member States. Timely and better disaggregated, country level data aids the search for an evidence-based course to realizing economic transformation and sustainable development in a post-2015 development context. Specifically, the project builds on – and further develops – two unique firm and rural household panel data sets in Viet Nam, a dynamic East-Asian economy.
Viet Nam’s contemporary similarities to a large number of developing countries make its experiences highly relevant for many regional and extra-regional stakeholders. This project consists of in-depth and high quality reports and research studies carried out by leading international experts, with a view to inform policy-formulation for broad-based, inclusive, and sustained growth.
