Seminar: Vietnam, the next destination for investment

Political Stability, Large Domestic Market of 90 millions and Low Labor Cost, have made Vietnam one of the most attractive destination of investment.

According to a recent online survey by Japan’s Nikkei Economic Times newspaper, Vietnam is considered the most attractive destination for investment, surpassing Thailand and Indonesia.

Manufacturers are seeking alternatives along with rising labor costs in Thailand and China – Vietnam’s labor costs are 35 percent to 45 percent cheaper than those in China’s second and third-tier cities and 20 percent to 35 percent lower than Thailand’s.
