Abstract

Vietnam's government has implemented a high level protection policy on its domestic automobile industry. The paper is to provide an answer to the question whether that policy has been successful or not. Using quantitative analysis methods and data collected from various sources, we conclude that it up to now has been a failure, in terms of key policy targets and welfare surplus. The industry remains 'infant' while both consumer and government lose. The research suggests a revision of the protection process and a clarification of government's policy objectives.
