  • Vo Van Thuong is seen as a possible successor to Communist Party Chief Nguyen Phu Trong, who has been leading an anti-graft crackdown in Vietnam.
Some of the main challenges that Vietnam faces are:
  • Aging population: The population aged 55 and above accounted for nearly 15% of the total population in 2017. The birth rate also declined to less than 2%.
  • Economic inequality: Vietnam had more than 200 super-rich people with a net worth of over $30 million in 2017. However, many people still live in poverty and lack access to basic services.
  • Brain drain: Many talented and educated Vietnamese people choose to work abroad for better opportunities and income. This reduces the human capital and innovation potential of Vietnam.
  • Pollution: Vietnam is one of the most polluted countries in the world, especially in urban areas. Air pollution, water pollution, waste management, deforestation and climate change are some of the environmental issues that affect public health and natural resources.
