Vietnam has recently successfully established itself as the leading destination for foreign direct investment, thanks to its increasing integration with world markets. Its FTA network is currently connecting Vietnam to 68% of the world population.
Further, the biggest seaport and industrial hub of North Vietnam Haiphong city has invested massively in state-of-the-art multimodal infrastructures. The first ship in the direct shipping route to US was recently launched in April 2019, minimizing transportation time and risk. These developments together with other advantages (such as the proximity to the Chinese market as well as the economic zone tax package) bring tremendous business opportunities for manufacturing, logistics and service companies.
For Singaporean businesses to take full advantage of those developments, experts from Dezan Shira & Associates and DEEP C Industrial Zones are going to share insights regarding recent developments and the key to successfully planning your business in Vietnam.
