Much of the FDI inflows into Vietnam come from more developed Asian countries, including Japan, Singapore and Korea. We see further evidence of Vietnam ‘s competitiveness in its ability to attract FDI – which at an average rate of 8.3% of GDP in the last five years (2008-2012) is among the highest rates in the whole of the global frontier and emerging Asian space.
Some of the sectors that have seen significant FDI inflows in recent years include banks, property and infrastructure. However a shift is underway, with a rise in FDI into manufacturing, retail and technology, among others. Flows are becoming less speculative in nature than in some instances in the past, and they do more to add value and create jobs.
