Vietnam is rapidly emerging as one of the world's new manufacturing hubs, with multinationals diversifying their production to build greater resilience in their supply chains. More than USD 370 billion of foreign direct investments accumulated inflows since 1987 have boosted Vietnam to be one of the world's fastest growing economies. Among all international players, Japanese, South Korean and Taiwan investors stand out as the most successful ones in establishing supply chains in Vietnam. Several Swedish players have also started to establish footprint, gaining initial sourcing success in Vietnam.
Similar to Vietnam, the Philippines has been steadily growing its portfolio of foreign investors. The country boasts of a young, English speaking talent pool. Growth has been evident in the past decades and the country was even positioned to enter the middle-income economy scale pre-pandemic. Service has been one of the Philippines' top exports. Manufacturing is slowly gaining and ground. Alongside attractive incentives for foreign investors, the Philippines is building itself to be an attractive destination for production and sourcing.
This webinar aims to present the Philippines and Vietnam's case for building supply chains. The his event also aims to highlight both countries' competitiveness as destinations for manufacturing and export-oriented companies.
