    Default The Vietmamese economy

    Can this be replaced by "the economy of Vietnam" or "the Vietnam economy ?
    If it can't, could you please let me know the differences between them ?
    Thank you so much !

    I suggest these:
    Vietnam's economy
    The Vietnamese economy
    The economy of Vietnam

    The Vietnam economy sounds quite off to me.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Are you really Vietnamese ? You have surely lived in Singapore since the time you were born, haven't you ? Why is your native language English ?
    Can you let me know your gender, age please ?
    I'm 24. I love English very much but my English is so bad, hehe. All I can do is to try to learn hard and feel joyous with English every day.
    Thank you . Nice to meet you !

    I agree with Barb D that "the Vietnam economy" sounds unnatural. Please see amendments to Beankyu's post - there are some important things to note (but please note that I don't agree with the reply that they are both acceptable).
