(2 marks)1a, According to the article, VN’s economy was boosted by two important factors: foreign investments and exports. Investigate on this, making sure to cite an example for each, presenting recent data (not older than 2014) to demonstrate the increase in these variables. Additional data and information is required to adequately answer this question.Foreign investment has two typical types: foreign direct investment (FDI) and foreignportfolio investment (FPI). FPI is when a foreign company has a financial investment in adomestic company through buying stock, but the operation belongs to national organizations.Huyen (2016) states that FPI helps Vietnam to recover from the global economic downturn in2008. When foreigners invest in this way, it increases an amount of money to run a businesswhich helps them to improve technology and have more physical capitals to increaseproductivity. However, FPI is only about 0.05% of foreigners’ total investment in Vietnamaccording to Talk Vietnam (2016). Therefore, Vietnamnews (2015) claims that foreign directinvestment (FDI) is the main factor to develop Vietnamese economy. FDI happens when aforeign company owns and has right to make all decisions in the operating firm. Thanks toeconomic reform from Vietnamese government called Doi Moi in 1980-s which established a
new Foreign Investment Law to have an open economy. As a result, Vietnam has had 17,579FDI projects which costed $251.8 billion since 1987 according to Vietnam News (2015) .
