Abstract

Activities which are of sensitive and complex socio-economic characteristics have always been the principal focus of the legal system in every nation. “Prohibiting a sensitive and complex socio-economic activity when it cannot be managed by law’’ is a legislative trend in Vietnam which will be further clarified in the article by analyzing the activities that have been banned or just stopped at the level of banning proposals in Vietnam, namely debt collection, and sale and purchase of land in the suburbs of special urban areas. On the basis of analyzing the main causes leading to this legislative trend, the article will also propose solutions with a view to surmounting the current drawbacks and improve the Vietnamese legal system in the direction of democracy and transparency, which will contribute to the sustainable development of the economy and society.

Las actividades socioeconómicas sensibles y complejas siempre han estado en el centro del sistema jurídico de cualquier nación. La prohibición de actividades socioeconómicas sensibles y complejas cuando no pueden ser gestionadas por ley es una corriente legislativa de Vietnam que será objeto de mayor aclaración en este artículo, a través del análisis de actividades que han sido prohibidas o han quedado detenidas en el nivel de prohibición de propuestas, a saber, el cobro de deudas y la compraventa de terreno en suburbios de áreas urbanas especiales. Sobre la base del análisis de las causas principales conducentes a esa corriente Legislativa, el artículo propondrá asimismo soluciones, con vistas a superar los actuales obstáculos y a mejorar el sistema jurídico de Vietnam en pos de la democracia y la transparencia, lo cual contribuirá al desarrollo sostenible de la economía y la sociedad.
