Vietnam, a special breed of Asian tiger


Vietnam has always been a special country. A socialist state, it preferred the Soviet Union to China which was much closer in terms of territory, and throughout its history it has had to confront the ambitions of several superpowers simultaneously. “It is an Asian tiger of the new wave”, which has not abandoned its socialist line and at the same time is not blindly copying the Chinese experience. A once poor and war-torn country that is carefully forging its own distinctive path to regional power status. And - we can already talk about it now - one of the most likely “pillars” of a multipolar world in Southeast Asia.
