Focus on Vietnam

Vietnam is predicted to be the fastest-growing of the world’s emerging economies by 2025, with a potential growth rate of almost 10% per annum. Vietnam has been named among the Next Eleven and CIVETS countries. The Vietnamese economy has weathered the global economic downturn relatively well. The country has slowly been transforming itself into a more market-oriented economy. Reforms include partial privatisation of state-owned enterprises and modernisation of the trade regime. Vietnam joined the World Trade Organization in January 2007, which has promoted more competitive, export-driven industries.

  • Population: 96.98 million (4th February 2020)
  • Young demographics, with 65% under 35 years old
  • One of the most politically stable countries in South East Asia
  • Potential Free Trade agreement between the UK and Vietnam
