Format Workshop
Description The remarkable performance of Vietnam’s economy has interested investors looking for new opportunities in Asia. While Vietnam’s GDP has expanded by more than 5% annually in recent years, foreign direct investment has been lured by its labour, production costs and tax advantages. A substantial portion of the FDI actually targets the export-processing opportunities in the country. This has not only caused a surge in Vietnam’s external trade, but has also stimulated the demand for various producer goods and professional services. Improved income has likewise facilitated consumer spending. All these factors have made Vietnam a lucrative market among emerging Asian countries. Also, Hong Kong companies may utilise the benefits stemming from the China-ASEAN Free Trade Area (CAFTA) and the recently signed Hong Kong and ASEAN Free Trade Agreement to tap the Vietnam opportunities.
