Though a Communist country, which to many says “closed,” Vietnam is actually quite open to foreign investors. As a whole, Vietnam has seen quite a lot of growth in recent years with the poverty rate falling from 58% to 14% since 1993, which is a good sign for anybody wanting to do business there.
If you’ve been thinking about starting a business in Vietnam, the Wood Egg Vietnam startup guide will be your go-to reference manual.
Each year we hire 3 researchers (at least one local and one foreigner who live in Vietnam), a native English-speaking in-country writer, and an editor, to bring you insights from multiple perspectives.
Our researchers spend over 200 hours interviewing local business people, politicians, and citizens who regular foreigners would never have access to. This is 200+ hours you will save to hit the ground running. (Bonus: When you register your eBook at WoodEgg.com you get access to all of our raw research and interviews.)
