Most people who holiday in Vietnam are struck by the remarkable level of industry and development throughout the country. In any trip that encompasses Vietnam with any of its neighbours, the work ethic and visible level of industry and activity rarely fail to make an impression from the moment you cross the border. We recently came across an interesting article in The Guardian which explored economic development in Vietnam and across the region. The article was accompanied by a short film on Vietnam which will likely make for interesting viewing for anyone preparing for, or returning from, a trip to the country.
