ABSTRACT

Vietnam's efforts to become a member of the global economic community were initiated by Doi Moi policy adopted in 1986 by the 6th National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam. Thereafter, Vietnam adopted elements for market economy by enacting many laws and regulations, and entered into various international treaties. In 2009, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Vietnam promulgated ‘Circular guiding English translation of official names of entities, titles, and senior officials within the State administrative system, for purposes of external relations’. The purpose of this paper is to introduce the contents of the Circular. The Circular provides in detail the English translation of the names of national and local administrative agencies, entities, and titles of senior officials. The Circular shows the intent of Vietnam's government to become a member of the global economic community, and provides the opportunity to review Vietnam's State administrative system at both the national and local levels. Further, it is anticipated that the standard English translation provided by the Circular will help foreign investors communicate with Vietnam's administrative agencies as well as local law firms.
