Description:

The author explains why he believes that foreign direct investment (FDI) in Vietnam would be a promising investment. The paper discusses the success of the Vietnamese stock market, Vietnam's comparative advantage in trade, and its short and long-term growth potential. The paper also examines the risks associated with investing in a highly regulated capitalist market with strict government controls on foreign ownership. In addition, the paper looks at the risks of regional competitors, Thailand, the Philippines and China. The paper concludes that Vietnam is a strong investment target for FDI; although there are regulatory and political risks associated with the market, these are outweighed by the return potential over the long-term.

From the Paper:

"I have been employed in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnam) in the past for a period of several years. Most recently, I was in Vietnam during the last World Trade Organization (WTO) discussions were taking place there regarding its accession into the WTO during 2006. However, prior to these discussions regarding WTO accession, I witnessed dramatic changes in Vietnam that led me to believe that foreign direct investment (FDI) in Vietnam would be a promising investment. Some of the most prominent changes were the investments in infrastructure that the Vietnamese government was making in order to facilitate commerce and industry."
