Vietnam is one of Asia’s fastest-growing economies

The Vietnamese economy grew by over 7% in 2019 and growth is estimated to remain strong in the coming years. There are over 97 million inhabitants (2018) of which 70% is under 35 years. The economy of Vietnam is driven by a competitive export industry and a prospering middle class. Vietnam has soared from the poorest countries in Asia towards middle-income countries. For example, Finland has stopped development cooperation in Vietnam in 2018, and relations between countries will focus on commercial cooperation in the future.

There are two stock exchanges in Vietnam, in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, and there are more than 700 listed companies. The Vietnamese stock market is currently rated as a Frontier Market, but upgrading the stock market status as an Emerging Market is expected to take place in the next few years. The officially Communist one-party government of Vietnam is committed to promoting market economy reforms and liberalization of the securities market.
