The paper presents the importance of Vietnam’s coastal economy, including 28 of the 63 provinces and cities and analyzes six priority economic sectors according to Resolution 36/TW/2018 “About the sustainable development strategy of Vietnam’s marine economy to 2030, vision to 2045”. Based on the Resolution, the Interdisciplinary Balance sheet with 2 areas—coastal and the rest of Vietnam—is used (separate use of products in each region and imports) to analyze the spillover effects and sensitivity to income and related issues. Many new findings show that the efficiency of coastal economic zones already plays an important role in the Vietnamese economy and needs to be further exploited. This article is the result of the research conducted in the framework of the independent topic KC09.26/16-20 “Scientific foundations and breakthrough solutions for sustainable coastal economic development in focal economic regions in Vietnam” chaired by Dr. Hoang Ngoc Phong.
