European superpowers Britain France Spain Portugal Some ways they can flourish
in the economy were: Discovering new resources like gold and iron Keep searching for better marketing strategies they also want to dominate in the
military wars against each other. When it comes to the new world
Imperial competition increases Countries are always striving to stay one step ahead of the other or at least not behind in both the economic, social and political aspects there were some obvious changes in the cultural
of Vietnamese people Introduction of Quoc ngu
a romanized script written by French missionaries
which has proven to be more useful in
communication of Vietnamese people New railways were constructed and new buildings
were built although it was heavy taxation However the French colonists didn't do much except lived a life of self indulgence North Vietnam labour for coal and mine and zinc South Vietnam labored for rubber North Vietnam can't meet their basic needs French beside indulgence were boasting
that new land helped increase rice by 420% Vietnam felt that the French did nothing but strip of their natural resources Ho Chi Mihn brought together the resistance

independent However the Imperial Powers ignored Vietnam's call to independence By Postdam Conference Japan in the South
surrendered to the French those in the North surrendered to the Nationalist Chinese French came back to take the control away from Britain and Chinese troops entered in North Vietnam Ho Chi Mihn decided French were lesser of two evils and signed the treaty that French troops should replace Chinese troops for five years, return French promised Vietnam as a free state. But it was clear that French doesn't want

at Dien Bien Phu Vietnam decided to be divided by the 17th parallel
and an election would be held in July 20 1956.
However no election was held so the division became permanent until the Vietnam war. little backlash against any mementos
of French Imperialism Cities, towns, streets, city buildings re-named statues and monuments removed no attempt to destroy obvious
symbols of colonialism pseudo-French public buildings,
chateaus and hill stations used for
mundane purposes, or left to rot by design or default, some still stand French architectural heritage
(some mementos used as tourist attractions) Bibliography
