5:18 pm
it's done very well building itself up off to decades of colonize ation and war its economy is now robust and dynamic but the new challenge for the for the government really is to maintain political stability even as it sustained economic growth as the country becomes richer more people may want a bigger frame more representation how is the government's going to handle political dissent and criticism the other challenge is geopolitics china has staked a claim in the south china sea and is becoming increasingly aggressive in asserting that plane how will vietnam stand up to china which is not just an adversary but also a very important trade partner these are challenges for vietnam and its leaders may want to draw on the values that is associated with. as it brings the country.
