Vietnam is the next growth story in Asia. The country has become one of Asia’s best economic performers, with GDP growth averaged 6.8% per year from 1997 to 2004. Since 2001, Vietnamese authorities have reaffirmed their commitment to economic liberalization and international integration. They have moved to implement the structural reforms needed to modernize the economy and to produce more competitive, export-driven industries. The economy grew 8.5% in 2007. Vietnam's exports to the US increased 900% from 2001 to 2007.
Vietnam joined the WTO in January 2007, following over a decade long negotiation process. WTO membership has provided Vietnam an anchor to the global market and reinforced the domestic economic reform process.
Vietnam is undergoing exciting and unprecedented changes.
These changes present both opportunities and challenges for doing business in Vietnam. Vietnamese companies must become more competitive, efficient, productive and profitable. To achieve these goals, they may be interested in forming strategic partnerships with foreign companies and investors, or in selling their equity stake to foreign companies. Furthermore, numerous SOE’s (state-owned enterprises) are undergoing, or will soon begin, the privatization process. And hundreds of other companies will consider going public in the next few years. These challenges are new and unique in Vietnam.
This rapidly changing environment in the Vietnamese market is calling out to investors.
