In 2018-2019, Vietnam continued to witness high-value mergers and acquisitions transactions in a variety of sectors, such as food manufacturing, real estate, banking, and retail.
Vietnam’s mergers and acquisitions market recorded steady growth since early last year, buoyed by foreign investors who desire a speedy entry into the large market of over 96 million people. However, whether the market will continue flourishing in the time to come depends on how existing hurdles are tackled.
Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) have become a popular investment channel and a crucial factor in restructuring companies to improve their efficiency and competitiveness and that of the economy, a conference heard in Ho Chi Minh City on August 8.
The M&A deals made in 2017 are expected to have the value of US$2 billion, and the same value or higher has been predicted for 2018.
Merger and acquisition (M&A) deals in Vietnam’s real estate sector are forecast to increase in 2018, driven by the market’s significant potential, experts said.
The race is on for Vietnamese and foreign investors as the formation of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) and the upcoming Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) are going to turn the 90-million strong country into a uniquely attractive market.
