Vietnam will have turned itself from post-war agrarian society to a 100 million consumers market by 2020. Due to its abundant resources (fertile river grounds, offshore oil and gas, onshore coal and mineral) and strategic location on the regional trade route of Asia it’s an interesting country for any company looking to invest in Asia. Furthermore societal changes powered by a high literacy rate (94 %), young population (67.9% between 15-64), large labor force (51.39 million) and increasing incomes (classified as lower middle income by the World Bank in 2008) lead to a changing mind set and a country open to global thinking.

Sectors of interest in Vietnam are:

  • Aviation (strategic partnership with private budget airlines, equitisation of national airlines, airport development)
  • Banking and Finance (strategic partnership and/or management/technical assistance contracts with private banks)
  • Consumer products (food and beverages, household and body cares, construction materials, etc)
  • Energy development (oil & gas, power generation, coal supply and imports)
  • Infrastructure (public-private partnership in mass transit facility, bridge and road construction, sea ports)
  • Manufacturing – Others (agricultural produce processing, seafood processing, textiles)
  • Property and real estates (residential and retail property development in large cities)
