Vietnam is a colorful and vibrant country that, though relatively small, boasts more than 50 separate ethnic groups with a variety of languages and religions that reflect Vietnam’s rich cultural and political history. With an increase in foreign investment, Vietnam has become a popular destination for relocation and expatriate assignments. The country was listed among the top 12 emerging markets in a recent Cartus survey on Emerging Markets.
As part of Cartus’ On the Ground series, Donn Garton and Laurent Quistrebert of Resident Vietnam discuss a number of issues that are important for your Vietnam-bound employees. Issues to consider when relocating to Vietnam include the housing market, which reflects an expanding number of options and choices, issues with schooling availability, and the value that basic language skills can lend to business and lifestyle success.
In addition to our On the Ground series, you can find information on a number of emerging market locations on the Cartus Emerging Markets microsite.
