An Introduction to Doing Business in Vietnam

In a tough global economy, major foreign investors continue to prioritize their investments into Vietnam. Coca-Cola, for example, has said that it plans to invest US$200 million in Vietnam by 2013, adding to its US$280 million investment over the past ten years. German-based Bosch Group announced it will double investment in its auto components plant in the southern province of Dong Nai (from US$73 million to US$132.6 million) by 2015. In addition, Italy-based scooter manufacturer, Piaggio, just opened its second manufacturing plant with a production target of 300,000 scooters per year by 2013 to be sold in the Southeast Asian market.
