Vietnam’s Foreign Policy under Doi Moi

by Le Hong Hiep

In 1986, the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) adopted the Doi Moi (Renovation) policy at its sixth national congress, opening up a new chapter in the country’s modern history. Under Doi Moi, Vietnam has undergone significant socio-economic, political and foreign policy reforms that have transformed the country in many meaningful ways. 

This edited volume aims to provide an in-depth analysis of the multiple aspects and transformations of Vietnam’s foreign policy over the past thirty years. The book is divided into three sections. The first covers the broader framework of Vietnam’s foreign policymaking and the historical evolution of Vietnam’s diplomacy under Doi Moi. The second examines Vietnam’s bilateral relationships with its major partners, namely the United States, China, Japan, India, Russia, its smaller neighbours (Cambodia and Laos), and ASEAN. Finally, the book looks into two major issues in Vietnam’s current foreign policy: the management of the South China Sea disputes and the international economic integration process. 

As the most informative, updated and comprehensive volume on Vietnam’s foreign policy under Doi Moi, the book is a useful reference source for academics, policymakers, students as well as anyone interested in contemporary Vietnam in general and its foreign policy in particular.
