Abstract: Since 1986 Vietnam has adopted the economic reform and opened door for foreign investment. The law on foreign investment in Vietnam has firstly been passed in 1987 and adapted several times through the years to attract a higher volume of foreign capital inflow. This thesis critically studies the law and its changes and attempts to point out the improvement as well as the remaining obstacles that need to be removed. The thesis also examines international efforts of Vietnam to create more protective investment environment. A considerable number of bilateral investment treaties concluded between Vietnam and other countries is analyzed with reference to the countrya??s policy on promotion of foreign investment. The limited number of international and regional organizations Vietnam has participated will be reviewed. Thesis concludes that although the country needs foreign investment for its economic development, Vietnam is undoubtedly reluctant to accelerate reforms and cautious in inching its way toward a complete legal environment for foreign investment growth.
