Vietnam is an emerging economy where the economic opening and reform has transforming the economy from a central planned economy into a more market-oriented one. Since the Doi Moi economic reform in the mid 1980s, economic performance has been quite impressive. The Vietnam market is becoming more integrated into the world economy and there is an increasing presence of foreign investors in terms of FDI and portfolio investment in the country.

One of the main drivers of Vietnamese economic successes is the constant development in finance and the evolution of the banking and financial system. The constant changes in the financial landscape of Vietnam have attracted great interest from academic researchers, policy makers, institutional and foreign investors worldwide. This special issue is aimed at encouraging academic researchers worldwide to examine different aspects of constant and rapid changes in financial markets and financial system of Vietnam.

This Call invites both theoretical and empirical studies on those topics that are specific to the Vietnamese setting and can provide useful policy implications.
