Vietnam’s economy continues to show fundamental strength, supported by robust domestic demand and export-oriented manufacturing. The extreme poverty rate is estimated to have now declined to below 3 percent and the rapid GDP growth is underpinned by a broad-based pickup in economic activity within the country. This growth and development has transformed Vietnam from one of the world’s poorest nations to a lower middle-income country, highly capable of delivering attractive returns for investors.
