Supported by favorable global and domestic environment, Vietnam’s GDP explosively expanded 15 times in the past 25 years2. Vietnam is also the only Southeast Asian country achieved positive economic growth for the most recent two consecutive years from 2020 to 2021 amid Covid-193. Vietnam's fast-growing economy and equity market have been driven by multiple factors including continuous inflows of foreign direct investment (FDI), stable domestic political environment equipped with renovation policies, and together with a favorable demographic structure. The Vietnam’s FDI has been steady ever since it joined WTO in 2007. The FDI continues to grow with compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of registered capital as high as 8%4. Vietnam has been on the minds of many investors such as Apple, LG, and Panasonic who choose Vietnam to diversify their manufacturing operations. To stimulate economy, Vietnam has also launched a series of policies that promote development such as "Renovation Policy” including income tax incentive introduced in January 2015 for manufacturing enterprises5. From a demographic perspective, Vietnam has nearly 100 million population aged from 15 to 60 with 95% literacy rate6. Young population and low urbanization rate reflect potential. With all these advantages in consideration, International Monetary Fund (IMF) forecasted that Vietnam will be one of the fastest growing economies in Southeast Asia7.
