"Development of Supporting Industries in Vietnam"
Vietnam opened up to the outside world in the early 1990s, and
expected that the massive inflow of foreign direct investment (FDI) would
accelerate economic growth. However, FDI inflow has not reached the
critical mass yet. While various external factors are responsible for
this, the weakness of supporting industries is considered to be one of the
primary factors responsible for this. Competitive supporting industries
are required to attract more FDI into Vietnam, because multi-national
corporations (MNCs) consider them to be an important factor in the
decision to expand FDI, in addition to labor costs.
