Project background (Responsible Business Project)

Viet Nam has enjoyed one of the most successful transitions from central planning to a market economy since the initiation in 1986. Preliminary data for 2019 shows that real gross domestic product (GDP) grew by about 7 per cent, making Viet Nam one of the fastest growth rates in the region.[1] Rapid business-led economic growth brings with it a unique set of not only opportunities but also risks to social and environmental development. Impacts of business operations extend across workers, consumers, local communities, and natural resources. When left unchecked, where business is free to pursue its economic interests without effective regulation, respect for social and environmental standards can be undermined.

In seeking to ensure economic development align with sustainable development, a coherent framework is required to help guide and regulate responsible business practice in Viet Nam.
