|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./.

|Mekong Delta farmers switch to other crops in response to climate change||Mekong Delta farmers switch to other crops in response to climate change|
More farmers in the Mekong Delta have restructured their crop cultivation to adapt to the effects of climate change.

The delta, the country's largest rice, fruit and seafood producer, has faced severe drought and saline intrusion in recent years and local authorities have encouraged farmers to switch to suitable farming models.
Many rice farmers in the delta's coastal areas, which are affected by saltwater intrusion in the dry season, have switched completely to other crops, or rotated growing rice in the rainy season and cultivating other crops or aquaculture in the dry season on the same field.
In Soc Trang province, the shrimp-rice rotation model has provided sustainable income for farmers in My Xuyen district.
Ta Minh Bach, who is implementing the shrimp-rice rotation model in My Xuyen's Hoa Tu 1 commune, said he harvests an average of 1.5 tonnes of shrimp each crop and 3 tonnes of paddy each crop.
"The shrimp-rice rotation model does not provide very high profit but is sustainable," he said.
Rice and shrimp produce under the shrimp-rice rotation model is clean, as farmers use few chemicals to cultivate rice and shrimp.
In Can Tho city, many rice farmers have switched to fruit, vegetables or flowers as the crops offer two to four times higher profit than rice, according to the city's Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.
Last year, farmers in the city turned more than 1,200ha of rice into areas growing fruit trees, increasing the city's fruit growing area to 19,533ha.
The city's farmers are growing more than 9,200ha of vegetables and other short–term crops, up 2,491ha against the same period last year.
The city's department is encouraging farmers to restructure their crops toward increased value, quality and sustainable development.
Transfer of techniques
The delta's 12 provinces and Can Tho city have promoted transfer of advanced farming techniques and effective models to help farmers improve production efficiency.
Rice farmers in the delta have applied smart rice farming and alternate wet and dry rice farming to improve yields and cut costs. They have also switched to more high-quality rice varieties to meet export demand.
In the ongoing 2019-20 winter-spring rice, specialty rice varieties and fragrant rice varieties account for 45 percent of the delta's total rice farming area, up 12.6 percent against the 2018-19 winter-spring rice, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.
In Tien Giang province, nearly 60 percent of vegetable growing areas have applied efficient irrigation systems, up 14 percent against last year, according to the province's Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.
The province has 80 poly-green houses with an area of 500-1,000 sq.m each and more than 100 net houses with a total area of 10ha. The houses grow various kinds of vegetables and honeydew melon.
The cultivation of vegetables in the dry season has offered farmers in Tien Giang a profit of 21.5-122.5 million VND (900-5,200 USD) per hectare a crop, up 1.1-1.6 times higher than growing rice.
Dinh Thi Phuong Khanh, deputy director of the Long An provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, said the province was applying advanced techniques to growing key agricultural produce.
The province helped farmers apply good agricultural practices like VietGAP and GlobalGAP standards.
Ben Tre province, which is the country's largest coconut producer, has developed value chains for its coconut to improve yield, output and income.
Huynh Quang Duc, deputy director of the Ben Tre Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, said the province's value chains were focusing on growing coconuts under the organic standards of the US, Japan and the EU to meet export standard requirements.
The Ben Tre Agriculture Extension Centre in cooperation with localities and companies has established 48 co-operative groups and 17 co-operatives, with 4,100 members. The members grow a total of 2,964ha of coconut.
However, the delta is facing difficulties in restructuring crop cultivation, including unstable outlets and insufficient infrastructure.
In Soc Trang province's Cu Lao Dung district, which has the largest sugarcane cultivation in the delta, local authorities have instructed farmers to switch to other crops because of the declining price of sugarcane in recent years.
Tran Thanh Tuan, head of the Cu Lao Dung Bureau of Agriculture and Rural Development, said the restructuring of agricultural production in the district had faced difficulties, especially outlet guarantees for farmers./.

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.

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.

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.
