The 21st century is going to be awesome.

That's very interesting. I've to say that I had almost lost my hopes for Vietnam, but these are really encouraging words.
Do you hear CPC?

That sounds great. I haven't read much on what Vietnam's plan for socialism is. I've mostly considered it similar to that of the PRC but they hardly talk about socialism and place a lot of emphasis on purely economic development.

This is excellent news. I didn't realise the Left faction of the Vietnam CP had become influential enough to push for reforms on this scale. I'd been thinking that Vietnam might head in a Socialist direction after such reform had begun in China, but if what I read here pans out (and let's be honest it might not. Policies can change) it could be the other way around.
I'll be keeping a close eye on this.

Fundamental infrastructure for a socialist economy will be completed. Yes that is right, but it doesn't mean Vietnam is heading toward socialism (now and after 2020).

Vietnam has enjoyed fast growth rates since the Doi Moi reforms and hopefully it would grow for some time before the inevitable slowdown in growth. They still have a long way to go before developing the infrastructure as their GDP per capita is $2,900 est. 2009 (not the best indicator of living standards but still), far below than that of countries like Guyana, Iraq and Mongolia but this is excellent news.

Yes this is true BUT we don't follow the PRC any more. What they bring to us, which make thousands of our people die each year is enough.

I can't wait to see how Vietnam changes

Though I am not admittedly up to speed with Vietnam, given the inherently Dengist reforms made throughout its existence I have doubts. A revisionist country wishing for socialism seems iffy.
I'm also still not particularly sure of what specifically is to be changed and how socialism will come for Vietnam.

Well it seems to be complicated now. I hope we won't follow China's way.

It looks much alike. But it has some differences...

A few weeks ago, I was in Pretoria, South Africa, for the International Festival of Youth and Students, an worldwide meeting of the international anti-imperialist World Federation of Democratic Youth.
The Vietnamese delegation organised a Conference there in which they stated that "Vietnam is on the road towards Socialism and is marching down that road every single day" and is "implementing Socialism every year a bit more".
This was a very interesting revelation for me, to hear such an honest and frankly, humble speech from a delegate of a nation that has fought over thirty years for its Liberation. According to the Vietnamese delegation, the market reforms were implemented in order to quickly rebuild and advance Vietnam's completely ruined economy, a goal which has been largely accomplished, paving the way for true Socialism to advance.
