In Vietnam, more than 16.300 FDI projects are active in Vietnam at the moment and they account for total of US$238 billion. The foreign companies come from over 100 countries and territories around the world. Last year, the FDI reached US$22 billion, an increase of 35% compared to that of 2012. This figure shows that Vietnam is now becoming more attractive to foreign investors.

So why foreign investors choose Vietnam?

Firstly, Vietnam has a stable political system and a dynamic economy. The average economic growth has been remaining around 7.5% for over two decades. In 2012 and 2013, though global economic crisis, the rate is still over 5%. That is one of elements attracting foreign investors to strongly develop business in Vietnam.

Secondly, Vietnam has a golden population structure with 60% in the working age. Moreover, Vietnam labour workforce is well-known for youthfulness, hard-working, high intellectual level and good adaption that create a strong competitive advantage for our nation. On the other hands, foreign companies may recruit highly qualified employees with lower wages compared to other countries in SEA region such as Singapore or Malaysia.

Thirdly, Vietnam Government always commits to create a fair and attractive business environment for foreign Investor by simplifying the legal procedure, tax reduction, and land rental reduction. These changes have created favorable conditions for foreign investors, thus Vietnam obviously becomes their top priority when they expect to invest abroad.

Last but not least, with the population of 90 million people, Vietnam is a dynamic market for any companies. GDP growth is higher and higher, that promise huge improvement of Vietnamese consumption.

In Vietnam, we recognise that the FDI sector is integral and essential to restructuring economy and raising national competitiveness. Therefore, we pride ourselves in welcoming foreign investors from all over the world and we can both create win-win relationship.
