The research within the publication specializes in the microeconomic (household) point, and there's an emphasis on tracing the results of exchange liberalisation during the 4 separate channels pointed out through Winters. Such in-depth and micro-level analyses yield new insights that aid vital coverage classes and suggestions for Vietnam particularly and, extra usually, for related constructing countries.
