Abstract

Over two-thirds of Vietnam’s population reside in the rural sector, and recent economic reform initiatives may not realize their full potential to benefit the rural sector if rural links to the rest of the economy are too weak. In this paper, we demonstrate how multiplier decomposition methods can elucidate the complexities of income determination, and in particular the prominent role played by indirect linkages that depend upon market interation. Techniques like this can help identify opportunities for policy makers to facilitate economic integration and more widely propagate the benefits of economic reform and growth.
