Vietnam , officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnamese: Cộng hòa xã hội chủ nghĩa Việt Nam), is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. It is bordered by People’s Republic of China (PRC) to the north, Laos to the northwest, Cambodia to the southwest, and the South China Sea, referred to as East Sea (Vietnamese: Biển Đông), to the east.
The people of Vietnam regained independence and broke away from China in AD 938 after their victory at the battle of Bạch Đằng River.
In 1941, the Viet Minh — a communist and nationalist liberation movement — emerged under Ho Chi Minh to seek independence for Vietnam from France as well as to oppose the Japanese occupation. Following the military defeat of Japan and the fall of its Empire of Vietnam in August 1945, Viet Minh occupied Hanoi and proclaimed a provisional government, which asserted independence on 2 September. Provisional French Republic sent the French Far East Expeditionary Corps, which was originally created to fight the Japanese occupation forces to restore French rule, but ensued, lasting until July 20, 1954.
By 2000, it had established diplomatic relations with most nations. Its economic growth has been among the highest in the world in the past decade.
