Politics, economics. VIETNAM IS AT WAR AGAIN.This time-with poverty
Last year, in 2005, Vietnam celebrated the 60th anniversary of the declaration of national independence. For 30 years out of 60, Vietnam has fought many enemies, defending its independence and State sovereignty. And only the last 30 years have been spent healing the wounds and rebuilding the country. Despite the fact that the history of the Vietnamese was not given very much time for the construction and development of the state, significant results have been achieved. Among the most impressive, according to foreign experts, is the reduction of poverty, which our society has been particularly actively fighting over the past 15 years.
