Why Import from Vietnam

With its favorable geographical location, low-cost labor and large young workforce, Vietnam is projected to be one of the fastest growing country and a major production base in Asia. Its growing GDP is expected to reach 6.2% in 2016, the second highest growth rate in the region after India.

Vietnam’s minimum wages are low compared to other countries in the region, which makes the country attractive for labor-intensive industries including textiles & footwear manufacturing, driving them to transfer their production to Vietnam. Vitenam becomes an increasingly popular sourcing location for companies around the globe, especially Asian companies in South Korea, Japan, Singapore, and Taiwan and many USA and Western companies as well.

Trade agreements with many countries i.e. FTA, WTO, TPP may remove most of the duties in the coming years.
