UK releases guidebook on business in Vietnam

The “Doing Business in Vietnam Guide” has been launched to inform foreign investors about the quirks of the Vietnamese business environment.

The guide was jointly produced by International Market Advisor and the UK Institute of Export, with support from the British Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City, the British Business Group Vietnam, and e-Regulations Vietnam. Leading British firms in Vietnam, including investment fund Dragon Capital, also collaborated in the programme.

The main objective of the Doing Business in Vietnam Guide is to provide foreign investors with a basic knowledge about Vietnam, including an overview of its economy, business culture, and potential opportunities. Moreover, the guide aims to identify the main issues associated with initial research, market entry, risk management, as well as cultural and language issues – making it a must read, particularly useful for new investors and first-time exporters in and to Vietnam.

A compilation of essential service providers are also included in the guidebook, which includes Atlas Industries, British International School, Dragon Capital, and NashTech Global.

“In 2015, Dragon Capital has cooperated with many British organisations and firms to develop the Doing Business in Vietnam Guide. We are honoured to sponsor and contribute to this programme as we hope to present the most helpful and comprehensive guide to investors in Vietnam,” said Dominic Scriven, executive chairman of Dragon Capital.

Meanwhile, British Ambassador to Vietnam Lever Giles noted in the Guide’s foreword that the UK is committed to growing its trade and investment relationship with Vietnam, as well as providing the best support and service to British firms entering the market.

Following the launch, the Guidebook can now be accessed via the Doing Business Guide UK website ( ). A printed version and mobile application are also available.

Further assistance for investors can be sought from the UK Trade and Investment Team in Vietnam.
