    This project responds to the call by the UN Secretary General for reliable, timely and better disaggregated, country level data in 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 Vietnam, a dynamic East-Asian economy. Vietnam’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.
