This article examine whether Vietnam will be able to follow the reconstruction model developed by the Thai and South Korean banking industries in 1997, based on present-day Vietnam’s similarity with those two countries in 1997. Our paper also attempts to test the efficiency of the Vietnamese Asset Management Corporation [VAMC] in the banking industry restructuring process. The article use a quantitative model to test effects of the VAMC on Vietnam’s banking industry, and apply a DEA model to test the efficiency of the VAMC. The results contribute to the process of restructuring the banking industry in Vietnam, it also provide guidelines based on mathematical analysis for potential changes and improvements to both the banking industry and the bank regulatory structure in Vietnam.
