Tiếng Việt: http://bit.ly/1iSbWdE - Vietnam's poverty rate has fallen from nearly 60 percent to 20 percent in the past two decades, but challenges remain. Let's follow a story of two brothers born in a poor family, one living in the mountainous area, one migrating to the city, to respond to the question: What will it take to end poverty in Vietnam?

Hey World Bank i have a good plan how to end the poverty not just in Vietnam but in many other countries! Forbid the fuckin US to set Sanctions and Economic Blockades on countries that dont support their studid ass view on the world, what about that? Vietnam would be much richer and with better living conditions if the US wouldnt used more bombs than in whole World War 2 combined on only 1 country of ricefarmers.

the problem of the poverty of the ethnic minorities living in the mountainous regions are really difficult to solve. The roads, the bridges, the access to the electricity and education are very difficult. In these regions people live and work the fields like in the middle age.

Economic and political reform is absolutely necessary for Vietnam to develop itself. International organization like WB and IFM can only use their money leverage to push the government for economic reform little by little.

Reason is that Vietnam war caused this in theory due to the fact Vietnam has a lot to still pay off and the USA keeps sitting on their fat asses instead of helping countries like this.

What will it take to end poverty in Vietnam? Very easy: IMMEDIATE OVERTHROW of the corrupt communist regime from power NOW!!! Anywhere that communism touches, there is poverty, misery and hardship for the masses while the communist elites enjoy SUPER RICH status. The people of Vietnam deserve much much better than this. Please help the people of Vietnam by OVERTHROWING the corrupt communist dictators. Thank you.

Blah blah blah... Of all the major economies, China grows the fastest, Vietnam comes second. Half of China population will enter middle-class in 2020, and so will Vietnam's in 2030 (this also applies to Laos's) --- the three communist regimes. Say whatever you want, they are doing a much better job than those of the 'democratic' Philippines, India, South Africa and many South Americas, etc. Don't deflect, 'communist ideology' is not the problem. Every fast-growing economy has to face inequality, but with improved educational/healthcare system and more infrastructure investment (for under-developed regions), as well as rapid urbanization, inequality in wealth distribution will eventually be alleviated, thus end poverty. What's happening to Vietnam now, happened to China several years ago. After decades of focusing primarily on the East coast, China economy boomed, but this had little effect on the poor mountainous area of the South West and Tibet. Then a few years ago, China launched a campaign to invest more infrastructure into the area to tackle the issue, early numbers show positive results. With many similarities between the two countries, Vietnam can learn much from the China's miracle and how they solved their problems.

Vietnam government has lots of money from growing industry. It would reduce poverty even more if more roads were paved and schools were built and public schools were free. Also if people moved to the city it would benifit alot too.

@fdamoreg  While you are at it, how does Vietnam as an economy makes it growth? Exporting Rice? Fish or more correctly Labor?
Shepetto (2 years ago)
Vietnam economy is growing at a 7% yearly from the last, what? 2 decades? Im guessing by their increase in gdp per capita and the reduction in poverty from the last years that they are doing just fine, and they will be in a much better place in the future. Where does people like you come from?

You know what is better? Not having children. I mean ffs if you can't even support yourself then don't bring more souls into this world. Breeding while can't even support one self should be crime against humanity. Bringing children into the world only to have them suffer, great idea.
M M (4 months ago)
The main goal of every family is to get children and raise them, if u cant support urself u better work harder, because a life without a family is nearly pointless.
boni aditya (7 months ago)
@Shepetto it is not about life being hard, it is about torture, when your entire life experience was shit, when you haven't had a single happy moment in your entire life how can you give birth to four more souls and ask them to live a torturous life like yours, where you don't provide them education, don't give them food to eat, don't give them anything to be happy about and then they die working 15 hours a day. it is not compulsion that you have kids, the species isn't going extinct because you don't have any kids. There are 8 billion people in this world adding one more makes no sense, if you can't give them better opportunities. Just don't give them a life of misery and eternal sorrow from birth to death! In India the situation is worse, after they give birth they don't take responsibility of the kid, they desert the kid, there are million of orphans roaming in the streets of India, please use condoms and don't give birth! This institution of marriage and the social pressure to give birth should be regulated. I love the Chinese one kid policy - If it is only one kid, it would receive all the resources, however little and grow up to have better lives than their parents!
Eric Decamps (1 year ago)
People in poor countries have more kids cause it's the only "pension" they will have when they grow old. In China, Vietnam or the Philippines (where I lived), kids are expected to work hard to financially help their parents and grandparents. A couple without kids is certainly gonna end up homeless and starving the day they cannot work anymore.

There is a difference between 7 billion people and 400 millions people in the world. Sure back then we need to breed in order to ensure our survival, but now we are borderline overpopulation. It is no longer about human existence anymore, breeding like rabbits just does not work in the modern world.

I think we have to mention the importance of Bank of Vietnam and politics of Government. With the help of Banking and Government politics, they will find out the good solutions for improvement conditions, but it depends on their moral and intellectual skill, management, etc. Vietnam today, there are so many development commercial Bank with the right politics of authorities to help their people living better. Think and ask what can we do for the country, do not ask the country what can bring to us ( Đừng hỏi Tổ Quốc đã làm gì cho ta, mà hãy hỏi ta đã làm gì cho Tổ Quốc). Let's Give the opinion about solution to ending poverty or escape poor condition.

Education is the key but it should be REAL education: learning practical things instead of learning things that we won't make use after graduation. Education of Vietnam right now is very dated and unpractical.

The World Bank now offered loans conditional on the sacking of tens of thousands of workers from public enterprises and the scrapping of public services that were once the envy of other poor countries. Even during the long years of war, primary care where people lived and worked had raised life expectancy to among the highest in the developing world. More babies had survived birth and their first precarious years than in most Asian countries. Now, under the tutelage of the foreign donor community, the government was forced to abandon support for health services; diseases, such as malaria, dengue and cholera, returned. It was as if the Vietnamese were finally being granted membership of the international community as long as they created a society based on divisions of wealth and poverty and exploited labour, in which social achievements were no longer valued: the kind of foreign-imposed system they had sacrificed so much to escape. It seemed, wrote Gabriel Kolko in his classic work, Anatomy of a War, that the Vietnam war would finally end in "the defeat of all who fought in it - and one of the greatest tragedies of modern history".

@Khanh Quoc Tran "Vietnam has a well-educated population by international standards, especially as compared to the general level ins most low-income countries. At 94.1%, the official literacy rate is substantially highe than either India's or China's and is comparable to literacy rates in Asian countries that are much richer than Vietnam is."  - The Southeast Asia Handbook (Dr. Athar Hussein)  I agree, that education is a factor which IS essential for the economic situation. But I think another point is that, the reform program become more and more stagnant since "doi moi" - a reason, could be the political structure / system, which significantly slows down the process of decision-making. Hope it gets better soon.

When people are struggling with day-to-day existence, self-education is not so easy. Paying for food and shelter takes precedent over long-term goals when you are below a certain income level. It's a nice thought but it's not practical for most people.
T.O.T.G.A (5 years ago)
I think his opinion is kinda true...But I believe the main point of education here should not be making students comprehend unuseful and theoretical knowledge anymore: it should firstly focus on improving everybody's ways of thinking, helping them change their perspectives to make them think more about a big future and long-term goals than their immediate needs, so they can come up with appropriate moves and good decisions to improve their life as well as our country's life :D.

According to the Maslow pyramid, we can see that people here struggle everyday for making a living. The very first basic things are very uncertain like this so how can possible for them to think of education, that is another step upper basic need. In my opinion, to end up the poverty in Viet Nam, we need to have a good management system and implement strict rules.

It's not as simple as just saying people should be more educated. Education is vital but as the video shows, it's not that these families didn't want to educate their children. The problems are more political. Education should be free and mandatory, which might mean raising taxes. The deeper problem is economic inequality.
Lm Ng (5 years ago)
In Vietnam, I'm sure there are so many good teachers who are capable of upgrading the education, however, we lack of the policies to push that capability into changes. We tends to attend so many meetings, come up with brilliant ideas, but no practical implications in the end. The government needs to do something, to standardise the quality of education, improve access to education and reduce social stratification.

Education should not be the solution by itself. What is the use of education if the economy is not strong enough to support all the graduates ? And whatever the solution is, it should produce enough jobs, with diversity of skills, and with acceptable income. I think it would involve a combination of law, education, etc.
Nam Long Pham (5 years ago)
No, it's not about education. Education is a very naive answer. If you want to double-check, check back to see if all of your friends in your same class having same amount of salary earned given the same amount of studying they have. It's more about the entrepreneurship of people, including governmental officers, to create their own chance and chances for others.

honeygem90 (5 years ago)
The most important solution in my opinion is education. However, even the education system in Vietnam presently doesn't meet the market need. Vietnam is lack of vocational training system and infrastructure. Education for higher levels orient in unpractical goals. It is common that students cannot find a job after graduate, research work cannot apply in reality. I think Vietnam should think about future occupation orientation for young generation before making any changes in education system

And what's next? You can't answer that with a straight face. Turning peaceful land into war zones and puppet army camps. The facts are out and they are not so bright. War. All the incompetent sees is war. Overthrowing what with what? To create chaos in the street and put family from houses to shackles like that in 1993 Russia and Chilean coup? To let the already too rich suck out everything by placing Shell and Exxon in a sweet spot? Reversing back to the Vietnam war period now - dropping the GDP rate from 6% to minus figures? The overthrowing idea is naive. It is a disease within its own idea. A blatant failure of struggle and stupidity. If you want some real long-term planning, bring some new replacement answer to the table. It was the same with the Soviet back them, they try to overthrow the Tsar, but all of their plans ended their, they stood on loose ground and eventually tumbled.

Improved infrastructure linking cities and rural areas would certainly help the farmers transport their goods more easily, and might give them better information about which prices are competitive. Perhaps job training programs for rural migrants into the city, so that they don't get trapped working for low wages in factories.

But when Scar invaded the Pride Lands, it became poor, dark and gloomy; even for the hyenas, followers of Scar. I think the answer is clear, bad leaders can't do anything but ruin people's life. Where there is oppression, there is struggle. Anyone can hear this?

Compared with Singapore, Vietnam has a very long way to go since it doesn’t satisfy the first requirement of having a clean government. Without this a priori condition, all other suggestions will be fruitless.
James Richest (5 years ago)
Learning from others means diversity of opinions is encouraged. Best practices from anywhere in the world are studied, reviewed, adapted and implemented whenever possible. Pragmatism means only policies that have a truly economic impact on raising the standard of the people are implemented. There is no need for grandiose projects, no political posturing and no political propaganda.
James Richest (5 years ago)
Meritocracy simply means only the best educated and the most qualified person will be appointed after undergoing a truly competitive and objective recruitment process to responsible governmental positions, and they are paid a very competitive salary as compared with similar positions in the private industry. Education is emphasized throughout the population, and the government will help anyone to succeed academically and technically. Innovation is encouraged.
James Richest (5 years ago)
Clean government simply means a government free from corruption, cronyism, and inefficiency but full of accountability and responsibility. Leaders lead by examples, and there is absolutely zero tolerance for corruption in all levels of government.

Maybe the Vietnamese people can learn from the Singaporean experience. In 1960’s, Singapore was among the poorest countries in Southeast Asia. Yet, within 20 years, Singapore became one of the four successful tigers of Asia: Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea and Hong Kong. The secrets to Singaporean success have been mainly attributed to four key factors: clean government, meritocracy, learning from others and pragmatism.

Well, in New Zealand and other developed nations (of course not the USA, since they're notoriously privatised) education *IS* free. Ironically, this is a very socialist/ communist ideal. And, p.s., the World Bank and IMF don't 'provide' anything (any money they give is a loan, and always with extreme strings attached).
