The project had three primary objectives: 1). Give a set of recommendations for policy-makers and for garment business managers, which would spill over to the development of other industries in terms of both government policy and business managerial procedures. The scope and approach of governmental intervention on the garment sector provided lessons for policy-makers to apply to other sectors such as furniture, footwear and food processing sectors. 2). Contribute to the understanding that governmental intervention can reduce the negative effects of globalization while strengthening the benefits of liberalization, which is a controversial topic among international scholars 3). Propose policies and strategies to help Vietnam’s garment firms to overcome the challenges of the changes in international trade regimes.
