The Making of Vietnam: By Frank Senauth. Vietnam is a poor, densely populated country of war and the loss of financial support from the old Soviet Bloc and the rigidities of a certainly planned economy. To date the economy has improved slowly, but surely. People from all over the country know of this calamity in their lives, and they really want to better themselves, so they immigrate to other countries where they could make a better living for themselves.
They would work hard and wave their magic wand. This was because according to the GSO, Vietnam population in 2010 is estimated to be 86.93 million people. At that rate of fertility and mortality rate, Vietnamese population in 2011 will be reaching close to 88 million in 2011. Vietnam has the third highest rate of population in Southeast Asia, and the situation will surely get worse.
