Good piece by Anthony Fensom about a joint report, New Report Lays Out Path for Vietnam to Reach Upper-Middle-Income Status in 20 Years, released on 23 February 2016 by the Vietnamese government and the World Bank, that suggests Vietnam could achieve upper-middle income status by 2035 with a PCI of more than $7,000.  (Last year’s nominal GDP was about $2,200.) Included is a projection of what the economic picture would look like with and without the recommended reforms.
