The study finds out that: (i) TFP played an important role in the economic growth of Vietnam and China since 1980s and especially in later years, contributed to their GDP growth 30.4% and 22.6% respectively; (ii) FDI is significant factor explaining the Vietnam''s TFP growth from 1980 to 2000; (iii) business fluctuation affects the estimation of the Vietnam and China''s TFP growth considerably, and (iv) accumulation of capital was the dominant factor that contributed to economic growth of Vietnam and China with 54.1% and 60.5% respectively.
