In an article posted on Monday, the website said that in the race to become an Asian tiger, Vietnam’s FDI has averaged more than 6% of GDP, the highest in any emerging country, according to American multinational investment bank and financial services company Morgan Stanley’s emerging markets strategist Ruchir Sharma.
