SWOT analysis of the Renovation policy in Vietnam and the problems of Russian-Vietnamese relations

Kolotov V.N.


The article presents the conclusions of a study of two closely related topics. In the framework of the first, the development of the political situation in Vietnam is considered under the influence of the Renewal policy (Doi Moi) on the basis of the SWOT analysis. The main focus is put on the most acute problems in the field of security and the conditions for their successful overcoming. The second section is devoted to the Russian-Vietnamese relations; the emphasis is made on identifying the reasons for their low efficiency. The author identifies security problems that can be solved only with the support of the Russian Federation, but not China and the United States. It was concluded that the low efficiency of cooperation between Russia and Vietnam hinders its development, despite the coincidence of the strategic interests of the parties.

Tran T.M.


Based on gender-related data in the political sphere for the past few years, the paper focuses on analyses and arguments, aiming at clarifying the actual status of Vietnamese women’s political participation as well as barriers against their participation and representation. Research works have demonstrated that the proportion of women holding the top management positions remains low, although their proportion in the political system has increased generally. As shown by research findings, there are several factors impacting on women’s political participation including institutional settings, gender biases under cultural influences, family responsibilities and gender related characteristics.

Cross-border trade between Cambodia and Vietnam and its impact on the economic development

Burova E.S.


Currently, Vietnam is one of Cambodia's key trading partners and its role is steadily growing. During 2000-2016 the share of Vietnam in the volume of foreign trade of the country almost doubled. It became possible to achieve such impressive results of the mutual trade growth largely due to a wide practice of using both countries advantages of cross-border trade, which accounts for 80-90% of mutual trade. Cross-border trade between two countries has overcome several stages of development -from the level of self-organization and self-government to the development of state programs and the achievement of interstate agreements, which, in fact, have become the basis for regional policies to boost the economic development of the Great Mekong subregion, as well as backward frontier territories, with the subsequent creation of special frontier trade zones. Cross-border trade promotes economic development of border regions, foreign trade of the country as a whole and serves as a stimulating factor for the development of international integration processes. At the same time, it certainly has its negative consequences. It’s often "suspected" of having informal practices. And these "suspicions" are confirmed. In the border areas, smuggling and fraud have always existed and are still widespread. This report assesses the scale of cross-border trade, its organization, structure, and weighs the positive and negative consequences.

The truth about the Vietnam War. Review on the book of M. Bowden “Hue 68. A turning point of the American war in Vietnam

Lokshin G.M.


The author examines the book of a veteran of the American military journalism Mark Bowden, based on a large number of archival documents and eyewitness of the Tet offensive of 1968. It is noted that M. Bowden acknowledges that the Vietnamese’s desire to protect their independence was crucial in the political success of the offensive, while the Americans did not have such a strong motivation. The author agrees with M. Bowden's assessment of the mediocre decisions of the American command and the falsity of the American media, but argues with attempts to equate the actions of the NLF and the VNA with the actions of the American troops.
