This study of pollution from Vietnam’s manufacturing sector was undertaken as part of the World Bank’s commitment to conduct Country Environmental Analyses on a regular basis to help governments, the Bank, and other development partners address the environmental challenges of development. The study describes trends in industrial expansion and related environmental impacts, identifies emerging pollution management needs of the manufacturing sub-sectors, and assesses the relevance and suitability of environmental standards and regulations and market-based instruments being promoted or developed by Government. It examines the environmental challenges of manufacturing industries, the current and planned use of management tools and standards such as ISO 14000 and their ability to provide opportunities to increase competitiveness, but also create barriers to trade in the context of the ongoing Vietnam trade liberalization.
