Do administration reforms in Viet Nam really work in your cases?

Every year, the Vietnamese Government introduces lots of projects to speed up the reforms with help and support from international donors and NGOs. A steering committee to simplify administrative procedures, citizenship papers and the population management database between now and 2020 was also set up in August.

Despite reported progress in reforms to administrative procedures in Viet Nam over recent years, a random survey conducted by Viet Nam News on foreigners in Ha Noi and HCM City, the two biggest social and economic hubs of the country, showed that expatriates have a very different view about the success of the reforms.

Do you share their impression? Do you think the administrative procedures put foreigners off living in Viet Nam? Have you seen progress from the reforms? Do you have any personal stories of dealing with these procedures?
