Migration in Vietnam: a review of information on current trends and patterns, and their policy implications

This paper is one of twelve prepared for and presented at the Regional Conference on Migration, Development and Pro-poor policy Choices in Asia. Dhaka, Bangladesh 2003.

In the past 10 years, Vietnam has been remarkably successful in ensuring high levels of economic growth and in reducing poverty. This goes hand in hand with important shifts in population distribution and mobility. Although Vietnam has a relatively low proportion of urban residents (23.7% of the total population of over 76 million), this increased rapidly in the 1990s.
