  • 4. Introduction 1.1 Rationales for chosen topic Is the current rate appropriate for the economy of Vietnam? Which objectives of the exchange rate policy need to achieve to ensure the competitiveness of goods or provide a stable environment for development? There are many different perspectives on these issues. Besides, how the State Bank intervene the formation and movement of exchange rate is also controversial topic. It is argued that the State Bank should devalue greatly the Dong currency against the current exchange rate to improve the competitiveness of exports and propose fully floating exchange rates for the market to determine the appropriate rate (Cavoli and Rajan, 2009; Takagi and Pham, 2011; Pham and Riedel, 2012). However, there are also opposite opinions which the exchange rate policy needs to stabilize (i.e. the exchange rate will be more fixed) to stabilize the macro-economy, price stability and inflation control (Nguyen and Nguyen, 2009; Nguyen, 2009; Abbott and Tarp, 2012). As stated in Aizenman et al. (2010), to assess the level of appropriateness for the economy of the current exchange rate, it is necessary to have a scientific base to compare. Accordingly, State bank should determine the level of the exchange rate target for the economy. At this rate, it is possible to deal with issues such as competitiveness of goods or macro-economic environment stability or some other governmental objectives. Actual exchange rate, especially in the multilateral actual exchange rate is adjusted according to inflation differential of Vietnam compared to its partners (Le and Vinh, 2011). Therefore, it could be the appropriate exchange rate targeting for the State Bank to assess the appropriate level of the current exchange rate for some of these objectives above, especially ensuring the competitiveness of goods. Currently, there are some models to determine the exchange rate targeting such as model by economist Edwards and Van Wijnbergen (1989); Cheung et al. (2005); Engel (2006); Juselius (2010); Chou and Lin (2011); Hauner et al. (2011) estimating the long term, equilibrium real exchange rate; open macroeconomic model in which financial, monetary markets and other macro-economic policies are linked in a whole in order to assess the impact of policies on the economy. It also allows evaluating impact of exchange rate policies on the current account balance, capital balance; internal equilibrium model and external balance; real rate model allows evaluating the competitiveness of the goods etc.
  • 5. Within the scope of this thesis, one of the methods above is presented to determine the exchange rate targeting, which is the real multilateral exchange rate model (also known as the real effective exchange rate). The multilateral real exchange rate is chosen because it is suitable for the early currency market of Vietnam. The rate is expected as an important base for the State Bank to adjust exchange rate towards the exchange rate parity to maintain the competitive position of Vietnamese goods, and can also ensure the exchange rate achieve the long term equilibrium level. 1.2 Research objectives  Calculating the real exchange rate and evaluating its impacts on Vietnam’s export and import activities aim to contribute an additional perspective, an opinion for the exchange rate fluctuations and operational policies of the current rate of the State Bank of Vietnam.  At the same time, analysis is carried out to evaluate the credibility of the multilateral real exchange rate in determining if Dong currency is set high or low or not and the level of its impact on the competitiveness of goods.  Through the real exchange rate, judgments are also made about the exchange rate policy, the impact of exchange rate policy on the competitiveness of Vietnamese goods, giving the forecast rate prices for to ensure purchasing power parity compared to other major trading partners. Besides, some measures are suggested to improve the exchange rate mechanism in accordance with the case of Vietnam. Thereby, a favorable environment is created helping exchange rate fulfill its role for the economy, in which its role is a supporting tool to maintain competitiveness of Vietnamese goods in international trade. 1.3 Research question  Does trade balance have a linear relationship with the exchange rate in Vietnam?  Does bilateral real exchange rate have proportional effects on export to import ratio in Vietnam?  Does multilateral real exchange rate have proportional effects on export to import ratio in Vietnam?
  • 6. 1.4 Research subjects  The exchange rate of Vietnam Dong compared to some other currencies of major trading partners with Vietnam as well as exchange rate of domestic currency of these partners to USD  CPI, export value of Vietnam with major trading partners mentioned above. The growth rate of gross national product of Vietnam (GDP) and other trading partners  Vietnam’s import and export value 1.5 Research scope The exchange rate of some countries and territories to Vietnam Dong (Dong) and to USD are the scope of the research. Currencies from countries and territories are chosen to join the currency basket to calculate the real exchange rate for Dong and the U.S dollar by year. In the currency basket, there are more than 10 chosen ones which are SGD (Singapore), THB (Thailand), TWD (Taiwan), KRW (Korean), JPY (Japan), CNY (China), EUR (Germany and France), USD (United States). Besides, when calculating the real exchange rate on quarterly basis, only exchange rates of 7 currencies out of 10 currencies are chosen due to having difficulty in seeking for data. Vietnam’s import and export data with trading partners, CPI of Vietnam and partners, exchange rate of Vietnam Dong with these partners are collected during the period from the first quarter of 1999 to the fourth quarter of 2011. 1.6 Research approach In the thesis, many methods are used such as analysis, statistical description, quantitative analysis and regression. Data sources from General Statistics Office (GSO), Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Foreign Trade of Vietnam (VCB), Ministry of Finance, International Monetary Bank (IMF), World Bank (WB), and Asian development bank (ADB), online site from organization for economic cooperation and development (OECD), Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), Ministry of Labor (United States), United States Federal Reserve (FED) etc published the period of around 10 years from 1999 to 2011. Data is aggregated, calculating the multilateral real exchange rate of Vietnam, the bilateral real exchange rates of the currencies of country
