This study aims to evaluate the integration
process of the commodity market in Vietnam from the
perspective of a price-related approach. Particularly, we
use the commodity price index of Vietnam from 2010 to
2018 to investigate the degree and trend of the commodity
market integration of Vietnam during this period. As a
result, a simple index of market integration is found to be
a successful proxy for the market integration level. In
addition, an upward trend is generally observed for the
degree of the integration of Vietnam’s domestic market
from 2010 to 2018, suggesting a strong evidence of the
market integration among the Vietnam’s provinces.
