Doing Business in Vietnam

Vietnam is a market with promising long-term growth potential and is forecast to be one of the top ten fastest growing economies in the next decade or so.

UK exports of goods and services to Vietnam surpassed half a billion pounds sterling for the first time in 2011. This was the result of sustained growth over some years – both total bilateral trade and UK exports of goods and services to Vietnam more than doubled in the five years following Vietnam’s accession to the WTO in 2007
