This paper explores the relationship between the age composition of the population and labor productivity. This relationship is important because countries almost continuously pass through different demographic phases. While developed nations are characterized by a rapidly increasing aging population share, youth dependency in developing and emerging economies is still quite high, despite a declining trend.

Each reform implies social and economic changes. As many transition countries, also Vietnam has implemented a comprehensive set of economic and social reforms, starting in the Eighties. In particular, in the framework of transition economies, Vietnam is a curious and unique case of reverse reunification: after experiencing a war the liberal part of the country was unified in a communist system, which today is implementing a comprehensive and deep process of renovation (doi moi).

While the role of green industrial policy (GIP) and its effects are object of analysis at the level of very large emerging countries, like China or India (because scale economies are very important), its range is still questioned at the level of not so large emerging countries, like Vietnam. Furthermore, Vietnam is still at a lower level of technological capability, weakening its autonomous possibility of success.
