Essays on banks in the emerging and transition economy of Vietnam

Abstract : The global financial crisis in 2008 has highlighted the failure of traditional banking regulations and forced developing countries not only to reinforce existing regulations but also to search for new ways of stabilizing banks. In particular, it became evident that classical prudential regulations can be more efficient if it is complemented for example by good corporate governance, market discipline and efficient procedures for the handling of failed banks by the regulator. In this thesis, we try to identify the efficiency of these different dimensions of bank regulations for the particularly interesting case of Vietnam. After the government’s decision of reform (“doi moi”) in 1986, the country has succeeded in the gradual privatization of different economic sectors, including banking and finance, leading to a more prosperous economy and better living conditions. However, when looking closer at this process, it is possible to identify a number of problems in the financial sector that threaten to slow down economic growth. If Vietnam is to keep growing and catch up with more developed economies, it is essential to understand the root causes of these problems and address them with better financial regulations. We believe that our results will be a step in this direction. We also think that many of our insights should be transferrable to other emerging and transition countries. More generally, Vietnam can also be used as a laboratory to better understand the economic mechanisms that exist in developed countries.
