The Bangkok Post online newspaper published an article on Monday saying that the wait-and-see moment in Vietnam is over, and that now is the time for investors to take the plunge in Vietnam-one of Southeast Asia’s most promising economies.
The article said with an economic growth of 6.5% this year, Vietnam, a country of 92 million, has been a magnet for global investors in recent years as its government has actively concentrated on improving diplomatic ties and business-friendly policies, and has signed various international trade agreements.
The article quoted Sanan Angubolkul, president of the Thailand-Vietnam Business Association, as saying that stronger economic collaboration between Thailand and Vietnam is expected to yield great benefits for the two countries and ensure a seamless transition into the new world of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC). According to the article, Vietnam is seen globally as the next big place to invest./.
