Singapore to Vietnam

Vietnam’s robust fundamentals of large private savings, positive demographics as well as the rich endowment of agriculture and seafood resources remain intact and will continue to provide opportunities for Singapore companies in the agribusiness, consumer and tourism sectors.

The southeast and the Red River Delta in the northeast is buzzing with manufacturing activity. While Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City remain important industrial centres, there has been increasing MNC presence in provinces such as Binh Duong, Dong Nai, HaiPhong and Bac Ninh. Prominent manufacturing sectors include textile, garments, furniture and electronics.

Manufacturers which venture into Vietnam will enjoy low tariffs, boosting their exports to top markets such as the EU, US, Japan and Australia – an advantage which cements Vietnam’s position as a rising manufacturing hub.

Vietnam’s trade figures are set to climb with its participation in the 11-member Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). This is especially with Canada, Mexico and Peru – countries Vietnam does not currently have FTAs with. Another trade deal of note is the Vietnam–EU FTA, which could see Vietnam’s exports to the European Union grow by as much as one-third3. Closer to home, Vietnam continues to pursue regional agreements through the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) as Southeast Asia strengthens economic linkages.

As Vietnam is well-connected to existing consumer and manufacturing hubs in Asia (China, Taiwan and Thailand), manufacturers can easily integrate Vietnam into existing supply chains. Manufacturing costs in Vietnam are relatively low compared to neighbouring countries – making Vietnam a very viable alternative to China for manufacturing activities, especially relevant in light of the ongoing US-China trade war and the decoupling of global supply chains, as Asia-based exporters look to ensure they minimize their tariff exposure.

Vietnam-Singapore Industrial Parks (VSIPs) have a wide array of facilities, and are viewed as attractive landing pads for foreign firms. The VSIPs have drawn 630 firms to date.
