Nguyễn Thị Doan is a Vietnamese educator, legislator and politician, and currently the Vice President of Vietnam.

She is a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Vietnam, and a deputy to the National Assembly of Vietnam for Hà Nam Province. Mrs. Doan is a former university professor of economics. The National Assembly elected her as the Vice President for the term from 2007 to 2012.

Nguyễn Thị Doan was born on November 1, 1951, in the northern province of Hà Nam. She entered Hanoi University of Commerce for her degree in economics in 1976 and graduated in 1979. In the same year, Mrs. Doan became a lecturer of the university. She went to Bulgaria[1] (Ph.D. in economics) and France (Ph.D. in business administration) for graduate studies. In 1982, she joined the Communist Party of Vietnam. Shortly after returning to Vietnam, she was appointed as the Rector of Hanoi University of Commerce.

At the Eighth National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam in June 1996, Mrs. Doan was elected to the Party's Central Committee and became a member of the Central Committee's Supervisory Commission three years later. She was re-elected to the Party's Central Committee again in the Ninth and Tenth Congresses and served as the Permanent Deputy Chairman of the Supervisory Commission. She was named Vice-President of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam at the first session of the Twelfth National Assembly on July 25, 2007.
