The charm of Vietnam
Managing Director of SEKO Logistics Vietnam, Ms. Linh Le told “Vietnam is one of few countries that is a perfect substitute for China – the world’s leading commodity production and consumption market. In the context of a fluctuating global economy due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, Vietnam still maintains a good growth rate (average 18%/year) thanks to the stability of macroeconomic data. In addition, the recent cooperation with “trading boss” partners in the US, China, Japan, Korea and Germany has made Vietnam’s export products present in more than 125 countries. These are the important reasons why SEKO pays attention to our country.
Executive of SEKO Logistics in Asia Pacific, Mr. Anthony Barnes also found that “It is very easy for many businesses to find suppliers in Vietnam, but the long delivery really constrains them. However, with recent economic growth and the orientation to improve Logistics capacity in the upcoming time of the Vietnamese Government, we see a potential opportunity. More international corporations “jump” into the “cake”. A month ago, DHL Express also invested in a border exploit center near Noi Bai International Airport, with a strategic partner – ALS Logistics Services Company. The new center is expected to operate early next year, with a total area of 4,500 m2, twice as large as the previous location.
