ABSTRACT

Since the introduction of Doi Moi reform policies in 1986 Vietnam has witnessed a great demand for decentralization and citizen participation in the area of urban planning and development. The land use law and the construction law revised in 2004 are regarded as a symbolic milestone for people participation and decentralization trend in Vietnam. This paper reviews Vietnamese institutions related to citizen participation and analyzes people's view on this matter through questionnaire survey. In Vietnam the level of FDI made by Korean firms is so high uncomparable with other countries and now many Korean construction companies including POSCO and KUMHO are involved in large scale urban development projects in Vietnam. This paper is expected to provide useful information on urban development issues of Vietnam to the scholars who are unfamiliar with policies and institutions of this socialist country.
