With economic reforms, pro-business policies and integration into regional and global markets, Vietnam has created huge opportunities for Canadian businesses. Vietnam had a GDP growth rate of 2.58%, a trade surplus of 20 billion USD and FDI of 28.5 billion USD in 2021. Vietnam expects its economy to continue to grow by about 6% in 2022, despite the pandemic, particularly from the manufacturing sector.
Vietnam is very well integrated into the global economy with 14 FTAs (including large trade blocs such as ASEAN, EU, CPTPP and RCEP). With 97 million habitants and a growing middle class, Vietnam’s market is increasingly attractive to Canadian companies, and can serve as a platform to expand to the ASEAN region.
At the same time, commercial opportunities for Vietnamese companies in Canada continue to grow, and this must-attend Business Forum is an excellent opportunity for representatives of Vietnamese and Canadian companies to explore investment in both directions.
At the event, Canadian companies will be able to network directly with 20 companies from Vietnam. It is also a rare opportunity to discuss trade and investment issues with leaders from Vietnam and Canada.
