Firm-level Competitiveness and Technology in Vietnam :

Evidence From a Survey in 2012

This report summarizes information from the 2012 round of the Vietnam Technology and Competitiveness Survey (TCS), collaboratively developed by the Central Institute for Economic Management (CIEM), the General Statistics Office (GSO), and the Development Economic Research Group (DERG) of the Department of Economics (DoE), University of Copenhagen. 

The data collected here supplement previous survey rounds, and future rounds of the survey will give researchers and policymakers a detailed understanding of the dynamics of technology, profitability, and productivity of Vietnam's growing private sector. 

While every effort has been made to introduce readers to the main features of this data set, this is not an exhaustive description of the full range of information collected in 2012; researchers and interested readers are encouraged to review the survey questionnaire and explore the full survey data set.
