The Vietnamese government is invested in becoming a “factory of the world”, integrating manufacturing and logistics to serve the ASEAN region.
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is a trade bloc with a population of nearly 700 million people. ASEAN’s rising middle class and significant economic development over the past decade make it an appealing trade partner for the West.
