in a landmark move, parliament put the brakes on a proposed $56 billion north-south bullet train, saying it was too pricey for the country of 87 million, where the average monthly wage is about $100. National Assembly member Nguyen Minh Thuyet shocked many in another bold move last year by calling for an investigation to determine whether Cabinet members, including Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung, were responsible for massive losses at the state-owned shipbuilding conglomerate Vinashin. It was a scandal that left the company teetering on the edge of bankruptcy and drowning in debts equal to 4.5 percent of the country's gross domestic product.

Inflation has increased every month since August of last year, but is still below a recent peak of 28.3 percent recorded in August 2008 as well as the triple-digit figures seen in the 1980s.

The communist country has one of the top five inflation rates in the world, and poverty will increase as a result, the United Nations in Vietnam said earlier this month. Food prices are a key driver of the price increases. The government, long focused on economic growth, now says fighting inflation is its top priority. It has tightened monetary policy and set a series of targets to help stabilise an economy facing challenges including a struggling currency and a trade deficit. Among its goals, the government wants commercial banks to keep growth in credit, or loans, to below 20 percent this year. It also said public investment should
