Vietnam has recently become an investment hotspot, attracting the attention of the global investment community. The finance and banking industry in Vietnam has constantly developed and contributed greatly to the Vietnamese economy.

According to a report from the General Statistics Office of Vietnam, by the end of 2022, the finance, insurance and financial investment sectors have contributed 4.76% of the country’s GDP, equivalent to more than VND 450 trillion.

In just a short time, Vietnam has established itself as one of the fastest growing emerging economies in the world. According to IMF forecasts, in 2023, Vietnam will rank third in Southeast Asia in terms of economic size,  and the GDP is expected to increase by 6.2%. Especially, after the  Comprehensive Strategic Partnership with the United States, Vietnam has further asserted its position and hoped to take advantage of the opportunity to attract more foreign direct investment.

The capital market in Vietnam has played a major role in supporting manufacturing and exporting that Vietnam has been witnessing in the past one decade. This sector is playing a vital role in converting Vietnam into a high-income country by 2045 with an expected annual average rate of 5.9 percent.
