Industry Review Vietnam of the First Quarter 2016


The production and sale of domestic steel products in the first 2 months of 2016 continued to maintain a solid growth rate despite competition from Chinese low-priced steel.

On March 22th, 2016, the Ministry of Industry and Trade decided to apply a temporary safeguard duty of 200 days for steel billets and long steel products, triggering domestic prices to soar. As a result, many agents purchased large volumes of steel for speculation. However, as some big steel manufacturers made a commitment to maintain their current prices, the cost of construction steel on the market gradually cooled down at the beginning of April. Resently, the selling price is around 11 - 11.3 million VND per ton.

Even during the slow recovery of the world economy, many large corporations, such as Samsung, LG, and Panasonic are continuing to invest and expand production in Vietnam. According to the latest report from the Vietnam Software and IT Services Association (Vinasa), revenue from software and IT services in Vietnam has increased 50% in five years, from US$ 2 billion in 2010 to over US$ 3 billion in 2015.
