Phan Van Khai, the Deputy Prime Minister of Vietnam, visited Harvard yesterday to speak on economic reforms in his country.

During the visit, arranged by the Harvard Institute for International Development, Khai spoke with professors and Vietnamese students at a closed dinner.

Burbank Professor of Political Economy Dwight H. Perkins called Khai a "major figure" in the effort to open up the Vietnamese economy and move in a more market-oriented direction.

Perkins is one of 19 researchers compiling a series of articles on Vietnam's current economic transition.

He is currently writing a paper on the nation's industrial sector.
