Advantages of Doing Business in Vietnam

In recent years, Vietnam has become more involved in the world economy, opening its doors to international business interests and opportunities. The 21st century has brought a number of technological advances and significant economic growth to the country. Although China has had a head-start working with and adapting to foreign quality expectations, production in Vietnam is gaining ground.

Vietnam offers advantages to businesses worldwide. The country is rich in natural resources like rubber and material for aluminium production. Vietnam has made major investments in education and infrastructure and the number of laborers in Vietnam who have technical training and skill sets has grown dramatically while the costs of both production and living remain lower than in China. Vietnam also presents an opportunity to increase geopolitical diversity in the supply chain, as strained relations with China and resulting tariffs have not affected operations in Vietnam. And Vietnam has free trade agreements with several countries, as well as tax incentives for companies that move operations into Vietnam.

In the business world, particularly where competition is fierce, quality assurance can make or break a company's reputation. The growing international business landscape in Vietnam is no exception, calling for trustworthy on-site inspection and product testing throughout the production process. Companies taking advantage of opportunities in Vietnam, where manufacturing and packing facilities are often located far from company headquarters, must be able to verify that production lines are running efficiently and producing high quality goods. A trusted quality control partner with an established presence in the country can help.
