Vietnam is one of the fastest growing and dynamic economies in ASEAN, with GDP growth at almost 8% during 2003-2008. Even through the global economic downturn in 2009 Vietnam recorded a respectable growth rate of almost 5 %, making the country a highly interesting market for European retailers and wholesalers. Of course we will keep you updated throughout the negotiations.
