this manufacturing hot spot is growing by leaps and bounds -- but an improvised approach to project management could hold it back
Vietnam has growing pains. Asia's newest manufacturing powerhouse boasts the world's ninth-fastest-growing economy, as an increasing number of manufacturers such as Samsung and Nike set up shop in the country. But there's a problem: Vietnam's ailing infrastructure can't support the rapid transformation. If it hopes to sustain growth between now and 2020, the country needs an estimated US$200 billion to build new roads, bridges, ports, power plants and other infrastructure, according to the United States Agency for International Development.
