I have little to no interest in getting involved in politics or political discussions in Vietnam. It’s muddy waters and there’s not enough transparency or real information available to ever make me feel like I know what I’m talking about. That being said, I’ve found myself over the past few days scouring the internet for information on Vietnam’s ongoing 11th National Party Congress. It will chart the future for the next five years in the country, but as of yet no one can really say what’s being said. The consensus seems to be that whatever chess pieces are moved around, the game will remain pretty much entirely unchanged. That’s expected. I guess we’ll see. Or not see.
