|Vietnam remains attractive destination to investors||Vietnam remains attractive destination to investors|
With COVID-19 and trade tensions driving the shift of production lines from China to Southeast Asia, Vietnam, in particular, seems to have emerged as an attractive destination for investors and manufacturers alike, experts have predicted.
Vietnam remains an attractive destination for investors (Photo: Savills Read)
"Vietnam remains a promising market with a growing trend of manufacturing companies looking to set up operations in the country, which has been happening for a number of years. Industrial park developers remain confident that demand for industrial land will continue to grow and therefore land prices are expected to increase in-line with the long-term potential of Vietnam's industrial segment," said Stephen Wyatt, country head for JLL Vietnam.
According to JLL, multinational manufacturers have been setting up operations in Vietnam for a number of years and this movement has accelerated over the past 12-24 months with companies looking to diversify their operations and supply chains due to tariffs on goods exported from China to the US. More companies are expected to follow suit as the cost of production rises.
Data from the US Census Bureau show a 35.6 percent surge in goods imports from Vietnam last year, compared with a 16.2 percent contraction in goods imported from China.
"Data for this year will be distorted by the effects of the coronavirus on global supply chains, but the trend of manufacturing moving from China to South East Asia will continue," predicted Stuart Ross, head of industrial for South East Asia at JLL.
According to JLL's latest market report, companies looking to diversify their manufacturing portfolio outside China are attracted to Vietnam thanks to its proximity to China, Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) and the Government's ambition to establish Vietnam as a manufacturing hub for Southeast Asia.
The average land price in the northern areas reached 99 USD per sq.m, up 6.5 percent year-on-year in the first quarter of this year, while the southern areas recorded 101 USD per sq.m, up 12.2 percent year-on-year in the last quarter last year. Ready-built factories recorded an average price of 3.5 - 5.0 USD per sq.m per month for both areas.
"In light of the current COVID-19 situation, the postponement of ongoing leasing negotiations and new requirements will become more apparent if the situation does not improve soon. However, JLL believes that the market is likely to recover and grow rapidly after the epidemic is well under control. The disruption in the global supply chain caused by the virus outbreak is urging businesses to diversify their manufacturing portfolios geographically, instead of being overly reliant on one market," JLL said.
The company, however, said that not all manufacturing can be easily outsourced to Vietnam.
"Manufacturing wages in China are now more than three times those in Vietnam, but skilled labor in China is also higher. The sheer scale of China cannot be replicated: there are more migrant industrial workers in China than people in Vietnam. Furthermore, a large percentage of China's manufacturing is to serve the domestic market," Wyatt added.
China is committed to growing high-value industries. As a leading manufacturer of solar panels, 5G networks, artificial intelligence and batteries, these industries are generally more favored by local authorities. Lower-value manufacturing chains are often seen as adding to environmental pollution. As China moves towards becoming more eco-friendly, a cleaner, less space-intensive manufacturing sector will also free up land for rezoning to convert to residential spaces.
According to JLL, many businesses are likely to rethink their supply chains in the long term to ensure continuity of their operations and to mitigate risks of future shocks. Coupled with initiatives to improve sustainability performance and limit the environmental impact of wider operations, retailers may opt to produce and house more stock locally./.

According to the provincial People's Committee, in order to find the output for agricultural products in general and dragon fruit in particular, enterprises, cooperatives and cooperative groups should actively coordinate with the management agencies. There are few cooperatives and cooperative groups participating in trade promotion because the funding to support trade promotion activities is still limited.
Some businesses and cooperatives have not really paid attention to participating in fairs and conferences to connect supply and demand; not actively signed the contract after joining the connection activity or even delayed providing relevant documents when requested by the partners.
In the coming time, Long An Provincial People's Committee will continue to coordinate with the Food Safety Management Board of Ho Chi Minh City to strengthen trade promotion to promote dragon fruit products in major provinces and cities such as Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and some neighboring provinces; invite domestic and foreign enterprises to invest in building factories processing raw materials from dragon fruits; support cooperatives, cooperative groups and businesses to participate in trade fairs, especially participating in the Conference on promoting agricultural consumption in Lang Son province; hold a dialogue conference between businesses, cooperatives and cooperative groups in the area of high-tech dragon fruit production; find new markets for dragon fruits, especially EU, Japan, US and Australia markets.

Besides supporting solutions, creating favorable conditions from state management agencies, enterprises make efforts to gradually overcome difficulties, restore production and business after the Covid-19 epidemic.
Enterprises strive to overcome difficulties, gradually restore production and business
Many difficulties besieged
The Covid-19 epidemic caused many difficulties for businesses operating in the province. Some companies have to stop activities or reduce production and business scale. This greatly affects the situation of local socio-economic development. Besides, some workers and employees in the province lost their jobs or reduced their income. Despite their hard work and efforts, enterprises need state management agencies to quickly deploy supportive measures from the government to be able to recover production and business soon.
According to the representative of Hu Kiet Co., Ltd. (in Luong Hoa commune, Ben Luc district), the company strictly enforces disease prevention and control measures from the government, the Ministry of Health and localities. The Covid-19 epidemic affected the operations of the company. Goods were not circulated, production was delayed. Although it was undesirable, the company was forced to terminate labor contracts with many workers because there was no revenue to pay wages. Currently, the disease situation has been good, the company began to restore production. The Government has many solutions to support businesses and individual business households, so we look forward to quickly deploying them to overcome difficulties and stabilize production soon.
Vice-Chairman of Ben Luc District People's Committee - Le Thanh Ut said that enterprises and business households in the district face many difficulties caused by Covid-19 disease. The number of inventories in the stores increased due to the inability to consume and tends to increase gradually over the coming months. Shortage of raw materials, workers who do not have jobs, the risk of losing the market, reducing competitiveness because the domestic and foreign markets have not opened, etc. Therefore, most enterprises are forced to implement the plan for workers to postpone labor contracts, suspend temporary, unpaid jobs to cope with the situation of the purchasing power of the market is falling deeply. The district People's Committee reported the specific situation to the provincial People's Committee. At the same time, the district deployed and informed the support policies from the government to businesses to grasp and implement. When businesses have requested, the locality will quickly solve.
Enterprises in Can Giuoc district also cannot avoid the negative effects caused by Covid-19 disease. Mr. Matt Kim - representative of Simon Vietnam Co., Ltd. (operating in Long Hau Industrial Park, Can Giuoc district) said that his company specializes in exporting handbags, due to Covid-19 disease, so most of the foreign markets are closed. About 70 percent of the company's orders were canceled, 20 percent of labor was forced to reduce. The disease situation in Vietnam is basically well controlled, the domestic market has started to reopen. However, the world market is still not ready. The company wishes to postpone the deadline for tax payment. Besides, we will also find suitable solutions and markets to restore our operations.
Along with recovering production and business, enterprises still pay attention to disease prevention
Joining hands to overcome difficulties
The Covid-19 epidemic has negatively affected many countries around the world. In Vietnam, the government has implemented many solutions to help people stabilize their lives and businesses to restore production and business situations with the aim of fighting against epidemics and developing the economy.
In Long An, the leaders of provinces, departments, branches and localities concentrate to remove the obstacles and difficulties, implement supportive solutions from the government to businesses and business households in the province. The locality joined hands with businesses to try to overcome difficulties and soon restore production and business as before.
According to representatives of SNK Infinity Hong Hoa Trading Co., Ltd. (in Long An commune, Can Giuoc district) - Tran Thi Thanh Thuy, the Covid-19 epidemic affected the market. Currently, Vietnam basically controls the disease. The government creates favorable conditions on mechanisms and policies for businesses to access, especially capital. The province also provides information on mechanisms, policies as well as procedures, focal agencies and time for businesses to know. At the same time, we also strive to overcome difficulties for normal production and business. Currently, the number of goods and orders of the company basically sold out, the workers are still working fully. However, up to June, if the epidemic situation in the world is still complicated as today, the company will have difficulty in orders. In the immediate future, the company has contracted with material providers to try to ensure production maintenance. In the long term, when the world market reopens, the company will seek and expand markets and order to develop sustainable production.
According to information from the Provincial People's Committee, Long An always accompanies and shares the difficulties of businesses affected by the Covid-19 epidemic. The provincial People's Committee has implemented many solutions and directed relevant agencies and localities to create the most favorable conditions for enterprises to operate safely. Within its authority, the province will direct agencies to quickly resolve suggestions and proposals of enterprises. The business support package under the spirit of the Government's Resolution 42/NQ-CP when it is specifically and fully guided, the provincial People's Committee will direct the concerned departments and branches to quickly implement it.
In addition, the province requires relevant departments, branches and localities to directly coordinate with enterprises to solve difficulties and create favorable conditions in their operations; help agencies understand the measures to cope with the Covid-19 disease, since then they are peace of mind to stabilize production, ensure both anti-epidemic and production development. The provincial People's Committee proposed enterprises to be proactive and autonomous in business plans, to join hands with the provincial People's Committees and local People's Committees to continue overcoming difficulties and propose specific solutions combining the State and enterprises for mutual development./.

Development of processing industry is considered as a breakthrough in the agricultural restructuring scheme, the most optimal way to increase the added value of products. Over the past time, Long An’s agricultural, forestry and fishery processing industry has basically met the requirements of material production and consumption markets, especially export markets.
Long An is located in the Southern key economic region with the exciting development of construction industry and urban areas. With the advantage of agricultural development, in which rice is the main crop of the province with a cultivated area of over 500,000 hectares and an output of 2.7-2.8 million tons/year; dragon fruit with an area of 11,700 hectares and an output of nearly 310,000 tons; lemons are mainly seedless lemon with an area of nearly 10,000 hectares and an output of over 156,000 tons. Besides, the province has more than 1,320 hectares applying VietGAP process in rice, vegetable, fruit production and aquaculture.
According to Vice Chairman of the provincial People's Committee – Pham Van Canh, there are currently more than 200 agricultural product processing enterprises in the whole province. Specifically, in terms of rice, there are about 115 milling and processing enterprises investing in modern production lines with large processing capacity and storage, of which, more than 20 enterprises are eligible for direct export to fastidious markets. In terms of vegetable and fruit processing, there are more than 20 enterprises with modern production lines using fresh vegetables and fruits. A number of typical products such as products made from dragon fruit, lemon, yam, pineapple, peanut, etc.
According to Mr. Canh, although the province has a large number of processing enterprises, agricultural warehouses, raw material sources with various types of products, but the quality of raw materials has not met the requirements; the contracts for linking production, consumption and processing of products have not been implemented; people are short of capital for production and market information, so they follow traditional practices and experiences, leading to scarcity of raw materials or excess of products sometimes resulting to price fluctuations. Most of processing enterprises produce raw products, lack of deep processing, so the added value is not high.

|‘Made-in-Vietnam’ goods affirm brands||‘Made-in-Vietnam’ goods affirm brands|
"Made-in-Vietnam" goods are increasingly gaining the trust of domestic consumers because they fully meet the standards of quantity, quality, clear origin as well as reasonable prices, etc.
The viewpoints of buying "foreign goods" was over
In recent years, goods produced by domestic enterprises are constantly innovating, improving quality, quantity, improving designs, having clear origins, etc. Especially, since the campaign "Vietnamese people prioritize to use Vietnamese goods" was launched and carried out, "Made-in-Vietnam" goods are increasingly gaining the trust of domestic consumers. Many people have trusted and prioritized to choose Vietnamese goods when shopping at supermarkets, markets, selling points, etc. The people's psychology of "buying foreign goods" has gradually disappeared.
Ms. Nguyen Thi Thanh, living in Ong Nhan Tay hamlet, Binh Hiep commune, Kien Tuong town, said "I live in the border area, there is Binh Hiep International Border Gate so the trade with the neighbouring country is very convenient. My family also often goes to Cambodia to get essential goods to sell for profit. In the past, most people liked buying foreign goods, so the business earned a fair profit. Now, we have quit the business because consumers no longer love foreign goods like before. Most people prefer Vietnamese products. My family, too, goes to the market or goes to supermarkets and department stores, we still choose to buy made-in-Vietnam items. Domestic goods basically meet the needs of consumers".
Similarly, Ms. Tran Thi Nha, living in Duc Hoa town, Duc Hoa district, shared: "In the past, my family mainly bought foreign goods but we have changed our mind and chose made-in-Vietnam goods to use since 5 years. Domestic goods are quality assurance, eye-catching designs, prices are relatively consistent with consumers' ability to pay. More importantly, we can check the origin of the selected item, avoid confusion or fraud, purposely sell counterfeit goods".
Innovation is constantly done
Accompanied by the consumers' trust, owners of facilities, businesses, units of domestic goods are constantly innovating, improving quality, design, service, and so on to meet daily needs increasingly set by the market.
For many years, Vinh Huong fish sauce (produced by Vinh Huong Fish Sauce Facility in Cau Tre hamlet, Loi Binh Nhon commune, Tan An city) has been trusted and used by many consumers, and highly appreciate state management agency. The establishment's fish sauce was established in 1954 with many different product types from regular to high-end (divided by protein level). Each year, the facility provides the market more than 300,000 liters of fish sauce 15 protein dregrees.
Vinh Huong fish sauce for many consecutive years achieved typical rural industrial products
Owner of Vinh Huong Fish Sauce - Nguyen Hong Son said: "We are supported and participated in product promotion programs of industry and trade. As a result, the product is known, trusted and selected by many consumers. Besides, the facility is constantly changing, improving product quality. Imported fish materials have clear origin. During the production process, the establishment strictly adheres to the processes and regulations set out. The product has a food safety certificate issued by the authorities and so on. In addition to the traditional distribution channel, now the facility accesses e-commerce sites to diversify its sales and service channels to serve the needs of customers".
Also selected by many consumers, the state management agency highly appreciated the products of Huu Loc Peanut Production and Processing Facility (in Duc Hoa district) already present in many localities inside and outside the province. Products ensures the quality, meet the requirements from customers, even the fastidious customers.
Huu Loc peanuts are trusted by many consumers
According to the owner - Doan Huu Phuoc: "We put the prestige and quality on the top of the production and business process. Raw materials have a clear origin, strictly comply with the production process, and have a food safety certificate issued by the functional industry. On average, the facility supplies about 150 tons of products made from peanuts each year. Facility's products have barcodes and traceability to increase consumers' trust. In addition to selling through agents and retailers, the establishment has now approached and is preparing to exploit more forms of online selling via online or e-commerce websites to meet the consumers' needs.
To further improve the effectiveness of the campaign
Deputy Director of Department of Industry and Trade - Chau Thi Le informed: "More than 10 years of implementation, the campaign "Vietnamese people prioritize to use Vietnamese goods" has been effective. Vietnamese goods constantly improve quality, reputation, dominate the domestic market and increasingly penetrate deeply and widely into regional and international markets. The campaign has created confidence and interest in shopping and consumption among the majority of Vietnamese consumers for Vietnamese brand goods; arousing the abundant potentials in resources and business and distribution capacity of all economic sectors, actively contributing to market stabilization, economic development and inflation control.
From mobilizing Vietnamese people to prioritize to use Vietnamese goods, Long An has so far had many products to conquer consumers, including many popular products and brands of the province such as rice and dragon fruit, seedless lemon, Vinh Huong fish sauce, Huu Loc peanut products, Ba Buoi salty fish, Lamico mechanics, Dong Tam bricks, RedSun solar energy, and so on. Goods of enterprises in the province exported to more than 120 countries and territories around the world; Many products exported to markets requiring high-quality requirements such as EU, USA, Japan, Korea, etc.
However, the campaign still faces certain difficulties. Some places implement the campaign really not well. The quality of Vietnamese goods has increased but has not caught up with the requirements of integration and development; The competitiveness of quality, price, design, diversity, usability and consumption of Vietnamese goods is limited.
"In order to continue promoting the campaign "Vietnamese people prioritize to use Vietnamese goods" in the area, we will innovate, combine many forms of propaganda and create deep and wide effects to make the impact stronger to change consumers' psychology, behavior and habits. We continue to promote difficulties and obstacles for businesses to improve product quality, meet the tastes and needs of consumers. We strengthen the leadership and direction in responding to the campaign implementation, identify this campaign as a regular task in the working program; identify more clearly and specifically the work of each industry and locality in order to deploy the campaign more effectively and so on.
Enterprises must improve quality, ensure origin, product safety, etc. The goods need to be changed appropriately in terms of packaging, design, improve utility and environment friendliness. Information true, sufficient and clear information related to the goods; At the same time, ensure competitive prices. Besides responsibility for goods and products, businesses need to focus on social responsibility for the community, for sustainable development. Enterprises need to strictly comply with the law provisions on consumer protection.
Consumers must improve their understanding of the provisions of the law on consumption, understand their rights in accordance with the regulations in order to use them in the most reasonable and effective manner before resorting to functional agencies to protect their own justified rights and interests" - Ms. Chau Thi Le said more.

|E-commerce ‘ascends’ amid epidemic season||E-commerce ‘ascends’ amid epidemic season|
The impact of the Covid-19 epidemic caused many commercial services to be affected, especially restaurants. However, many business owners changed their methods into online form to face many difficulties. This is also an opportunity for e-commerce (EC) development.
Department of Industry and Trade coordinates with Vietnam E-commerce Association, Lazada sales channel to organize business consultancy and support for businesses.
New business method
The Covid-19 pandemic broke out and spread easily, all food and drink shops were temporarily closed to implement the social isolation regulations under Directive 16/CT-TTg of the Prime Minister dated March 31, 2020 (from April 1 to April 15) and later to the social distancing. Small enterprises doing business in markets are more or less affected their revenue. But for them, the disease prevention is essential now. In the difficulties of the disease, online distribution channels are encouraged and many stores and food shops have taken advantage to maintain business operations.
Mr. Nguyen Quoc Phong - owner of Gia Phong coffee shop on Tran Phong Sac street, ward 4, Tan An city, said that his café only served in the morning since mid-March to prevent and control Covid-19 disease and clean all tables and chairs with disinfectant in the afternoon. In addition, the café also sprayed disinfectant on the floor and the location that customers can contact. However, it has implemented a new form of online business since April 1. Mr. Quoc Phong shared: "In late March, I did not do business online, mainly to serve customers at the shop. I "imitated" online business from many shops in Ho Chi Minh City to maintain my business, waiting until the disease ends. On the first day of doing online business, few people knew. Less than 10 customers were served on the second day. Until now, more than 30 customers have been served per day. Most of the order calls, customers will receive food after 15 minutes".
"Vuon Nha Minh" Facility located in Binh Tay hamlet, My Binh commune, Tan Tru dstrict specializes in processing many products such as tea, cake, starch or moringa-extracted oil for women's beauty. Mr. Pham Ngoc Anh Tuan - the owner of the establishment said that the goods are distributed mainly through supermarkets and convenience stores. In particular, after Tet, it was an opportunity for advertising, sales and trade promotion at fairs organized by many provinces and cities. At fairs and exhibitions, consumers are introduced product, try it out and decide to buy and then it becomes regular customers. However, due to the epidemic, most fairs and exhibitions were halted, he switched to online business through personal Facebook page, provincial e-commerce trading market. However, the current business only serves the old customers, can not develop new customers because they have never known the products.
Consumers can buy goods in every space via e-commerce
Being careful when buying
According to Thu Thuy - owner of Xi Pho milk tea shop in Hung Vuong street, Tan An city, people rarely go shopping in order to proactively prevent and fight epidemics, especially eating out, so sales revenue affected. However, Thu Thuy promoted online sales channels, actively introduced stores on social networks and delivered products to customers without charge. As a result, the store now not only sells milk tea, but also sells snacks and breakfast food.
According to Mr. Nguyen Quoc Phong, from difficulties, affected by the disease, he has a new sales channel. After the epidemic, surely, he not only focuses on a single sales channel at the shop but continues promoting online business. In his opinion, this market is potential, serving the needs of busy customers, who do not have enough time to shop. As expected, he will officially register for sales on Lazada and ask experts of the Department of Industry and Trade to advise on how to register and exploit the sale. Mr. Quoc Phong explained his reason for the sale on Lazada that in order to create trust with customers because this channel is reputable, most products sold must meet good quality standards, origin of goods and food safety.
According to many businesses, mainly food, now, thanks to the change in the buying trend of customers, many shops are still good although they are not as many as before. This shows that the stores have taken measures to "live" with the epidemic, maintain their business in various ways such as free shipping, promotions, discounts, etc. At the same time, the disease is occuring complicatedly, as recommended by the authorities, the shop owners ensure safety at the business establishment by forcing employees to wear face masks, disinfect hand sanitizer before and after delivery to guests and often clean furniture so that customers have a peace of mind when shopping.
According to Deputy Director of the Department of Industry and Trade - Chau Thi Le, it can be affirmed that the application of EC to finding markets for products and goods is one of the key solutions to improve the competitiveness of enterprises, shops, especially during a complicated disease outbreak. However, in fact, many businesses are not really interested in e-commerce, do not have much knowledge and especially do not know how to exploit the existing ecosystems of e-commerce for development. Recently, the Department has coordinated with Vietnam E-commerce Association, Lazada sales channel to organize consultancy and support e-commerce business for businesses and business establishments in the province. This is an opportunity for business units to participate and improve sales in the form of e-commerce.
According to Ms. Chau Thi Le, there are still barriers that prevent e-commerce or online business activities in particular. Because the goods are not up to standard, between the advertising product images and the actual delivery when customers are not the same, this makes buyers nervous, lack of trust and do not choose to buy online. Especially, the issue of online payment is a big barrier because it is easy to take risks. When consumers choose to buy goods via e-commerce, they should choose a sales unit with a specific address, a tax code and a form of payment after receiving goods. In particular, the buyer should keep the sales invoice for easy handling when there is a dispute./.
