The research flows from the cases in European countries and Japan to Vietnam to study the con-text of public debt crisis and policy-responses of those countries. The study was conducted by means of the qualitative research method using different theories, together with gathering and analyzing facts and figures. The major of used data in this was secondary which based on books, working papers, reports, online-material, etc. of the world’s major economic and development organizations, governments, governments’ departments, etc. Even though Vietnam’s debt remains well in the safe zone, there are increasing risks in capital mobilization and repayment. Facing the problems of rising public debt, the government has to re-duce budget spending as well as have a strategic plan to borrow and use loans efficiently.
