Assessing Vietnam’s Economic Prospects for Foreign Investors After COVID-19

The start of 2020 began with COVID-19, restricting travel, disrupting global supply chains, and causing large scale unemployment due to significant losses incurred by global businesses.

In this issue of Vietnam Briefing, we look at Vietnam’s management of the pandemic and key incentives from the government to attract and sustain foreign investment and aid business recovery. We conclude by assessing the growth of new investment opportunities that have been shaped by the pandemic crisis.
