Phạm Quỳnh Phương. “Covid-19 in Vietnam: Social Engagement, Trust Creation and Political Legitimacy”. CRISEA European Policy Brief, December 2020.; Social engagement In 2020, Vietnam achieved remarkable success in containing and suppressing the coronavirus pandemic. The achievement is explained by political factors, including strong, timely and transparent governance, effective communication, close cooperation between central and local government agencies and between government and citizens. It also resulted from the adoption of effective pandemic control methods, including a proactive containment strategy of testing, tracing and quarantining, targeted isolation and social distancing. Unlike other repressive contexts where compliance is achieved through coercion, the obedience of Vietnamese people in this epidemic was accompanied by a high level of trust in the government-which has rarely been seen in recent years and surprised many of its citizens.
