Group, D. R. (n.d.). Investing in Infrastructure : A Growth Strategy That Favors the Poor?. Retrieved from


Viet Nam?s current physical infrastructure is inadequate. In rural areas, nearly a third of the population live in communes without a passable road. Nearly half do not have access to passenger transport, and more do not have electricity. Barely half of annual crop land is irrigated, and 95% of the rural population live in communes without access to piped water. In general, the poor tend to have worse access to infrastructure than the non-poor; but in rural areas access to many types of infrastructure is bad for both (see table at left).
