Firm-level Competitiveness and Technology in Vietnam

Evidence From a Survey in 2011

This report summarises information from the 2011 implementation of the Vietnam Technology and Competitiveness Survey, developed collaboratively between the Central Institute for Economic Management (CIEM), the General Statistics Office (GSO) and the Development Economics Research Group (DERG) in the Department of Economics (DoE) at the University of Copenhagen.

The data collected here will supplement the existing survey rounds, and further rounds of the survey will give researchers and policymakers in Vietnam a rich understanding of the dynamics and effects of technology transfer on the profitability and productivity of Vietnam’s enterprise 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 2011, and researchers or interested readers are encouraged to review the survey instrument and explore the data.
