With a population of approximately 96 million, a growing middle class and rapid levels of urbanisation, Vietnam is one of Asia’s fastest-growing economies. Bordered by China, Laos and Cambodia, it is located strategically in the centre of Southeast Asia.
The country enjoys a favorable investment environment, which has benefited from a stable political leadership, a large young workforce, and an open and comprehensive investment law framework. Ongoing domestic reforms and continuous foreign investment have spurred rapid economic growth, with manufacturing and processing, real estate, retail and wholesale being the top receivers of FDI in recent years.
Vietnam’s government also welcomes energy and infrastructure investment and has set up a number of industrial zones to attract greater foreign investment.
