Among world’s best for wealth

GLOBAL wealth intelligence firm New World Wealth is predicting that Vietnam will witness wealth growth of up to 125% over the next 10 years, the largest wealth growth for any country in terms of GDP per capita and number of millionaires.

According to wealth analyst Andrew Amoils, Vietnam is an increasingly popular production base for multinational technology, automotive, electronics and textile companies. Meanwhile, India, which is set to become the world’s third-largest economy by 2027, ranks second with expected asset growth of 110%.

Amoils added that with 19,400 millionaires and 58 billionaires, Vietnam is considered a relatively safe country compared to other countries in the Asia-Pacific region. This strengthens the choice of companies considering Vietnam as a top destination.

Explaining Vietnam’s success, strategic research firm McKinsey said that the country’s strategic location, sharing a land border with China and near major maritime trade routes, low labour costs along with the country’s export-supporting infrastructure have made the South-East Asian nation a ‘top destination’ for international investors.

In its recent periodic assessment of the Vietnamese economy, the French Development Agency (AFD) said that Vietnam has witnessed three decades of strong growth with an average annual growth rate of 7% and belonged to the group of middle-income countries.

With many free trade agreements signed, the country has successfully positioned itself in the global value chain.

Hervé Conan, Country Director of AFD in Vietnam, gave a very positive assessment of the Vietnamese economy. Vietnam has succeeded in maintaining an impressive growth rate despite high inflation that has affected many economies worldwide.

In its periodic assessment of the macro economy every three years, conducted from the beginning of 2023, the AFD noted Vietnam’s encouraging successes in prudently implementing economic policies to ensure economic growth.

The size of the domestic market with 100 million people is also an important advantage. The dynamism of national economic production is still maintained despite the pandemic.

According to the World Bank, just 10 years ago, Vietnam’s GDP per capita was about US$2,190 and has now nearly doubled to US$4,100.

Vietnam’s growth has been propelled by export-led industrialisation, driven by three waves of foreign direct investments over the past three decades, with the country on the precipice of a fourth, Maybank’s Economist and Assistant Vice President Brian Lee said. — Vietnam News/ANN
