Vietnam can offer to companies that are willing to invest in there skilled workforce a production of higher quality products relative to other low earning countries in the region. Vietnam actually wants to remain competitive, with very low labor rates, while bringing a greater quality for an economic transformation that is why for the instance Vietnamese workers perform better in reading than workers in other low earning countries.

Trade agreement including Vietnam have been impended in large numbers over the last decade. We can of course start with in which Vietnam is a member and has an important seat in the discussions taken.

4. The best political stability option of the region

Vietnam is a communist country which has successfully achieved a change on its economic and business environment at the right time in 1986 through the “Doi Moi”, a political and economic innovation campaign. It is indeed possible to create foreign companies, develop them and be sustainable compared to other options in South East Asia where political stability is weaker. Vietnam is now officially one of the fastest growing countries of South East Asia with an economically robust, politically stable and rapidly growing market.
