Abstract

This paper examines the assumption that the volume of domestic patenting in Vietnam is too low and needs to be expanded. The structure and state of development of the Vietnamese economy and a set of relevant systems - including the Science and Technology (S&T) System, the Intellectual Property System, the National Innovation System (NIS), and the Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) Policy System of Vietnam - are described and analyzed in order to determine, in qualitative terms, the extent to which the volume of domestic patenting is dependent on these framework conditions. An appraisal of the volume of domestic patenting is also been undertaken by analyzing data collected from various sources.
