The Vietnamese Private International Law has recently been reformed with the adoption of two new Civil and Civil Procedure Codes. Many changes have been made, but at the same time we recognize that the continuity of the system is maintained through compromise on fundamental issues. The new Codes are more complete and accurate, yet without falling into casuistry. In the heart of the reform, contract law has undergone significant changes, among which we should mention the pre-eminence of free will, protections of weaker parties and abandonments of the connection of the contract in question to the law of the country in which it is performed in favor of the closest connection.
