Project work: For this class I worked with one other student, and we presented on the impact of Vietnam's accession to the WTO. Our report highlighted how Vietnam's economy is being transformed, and how the country could address some of the challenges resulting from their integration into the global economy. Brief mention was made about how some of Vietnam's experience might be applied to North Korea, a pariah nation by-passed by globalization.
