It can’t get better when Singapore and Vietnam are ranked the best countries to invest in according to a U.S.News article. In the “Best countries to invest in” ranking poll, Singapore is ranked #2 and Vietnam #3. These are two of the countries we are going invest in during 2016 and we are very excited.
Not mentioning the article, these two bustling countries impressed me deeply when I first visited. While Singapore amazed me with its safety, cleanliness, efficiency, vibrant lifestyle, and it’s bustling shipping industry. Vietnam caught my heart with hospitable people, affordability and breath-taking landscapes. I must say the two are really splendid as paradises of food and places where diverse cultures meet. Their population structures are appealing with young and dynamic people. They both have the advantage of being tech-ready countries; their citizens are well-updated with the latest technology. Singapore and Vietnam are two popular emerging startup hubs, I believe the energy and passion there will keep building and the startup scene will continue to grow.
At the end of 2015, ASEAN Community (AC), including Singapore and Vietnam, was established. ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), which is one of three pillars of AC, will allow the free flow of goods, services, investments, skilled labor, and the freer movement of capital across the region. ASEAN seems to be a promising emerging market for investors all over the world. Besides that, both countries are members of TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement). I am looking forward to the day when this agreement comes into effect. This will hopefully bring many opportunities for ventures in Asia.
