Joining to overcoming challenges

The two countries are working together to double two-way trade and investment by 2030. In the field of investment attraction, the RoK is the largest accumulated investor in Vietnam.

However, according to Mr. Jeong Joon Kyu - General Director of Korea Trade – Investment Promotion Agency in Ho Chi Minh City, facing the world's difficult situation and general instability, the global economy is facing 3 major problems, i.e., restructuring the supply chain, responding to climate change, and digital transformation.

To maintain the close economic relationship between RoK and Viet Nam and jointly respond to global challenges, the two countries need strategic orientations in the future. In particular, the Vietnamese Government needs to support South Korean enterprises in Viet Nam, especially manufacturing enterprises to improve their technological level. Vietnamese enterprises themselves must also improve their technological level.

In addition, Mr. Jeong Joon Kyu said that South Korean and Vietnamese economies commonly have a huge dependence on global trade. Especially the factor of importing semi-finished goods for the production of finished goods and export. Therefore, when the world restructures its supply chains, the two countries will be greatly affected.

"Currently, many South Korean enterprises have invested and participated in the supply chain in Viet Nam according to the trend of reducing production costs. However, with this trend, in the coming time, South Korean and Vietnamese enterprises need to switch to the supporting industry development structure to support the production process to create finished products without depending on imports. Additionally, to support South Korean enterprises, Viet Nam needs to have preferential tax policies and strengthen cooperation between the two countries in the garment industry." - Mr. Jeong Joon Kyu proposed.

At the same time, to attract and create a better environment for enterprises, the Governments of the two countries need to have reasonable legal directions and mechanisms, especially transparent information-sharing mechanisms. Local authorities should have many options to propose projects so that enterprises can participate.

In responding to climate change, the two countries should have new models of energy cooperation to reduce emissions and waste.

Mr. Jeong Joon Kyu also said that RoK is a thriving country with a value chain in information and communication technology (ICT); at the same time, we have experience in applying ICT to industry and life. In Viet Nam, the process of urbanization is strong and the demand for digital transformation is huge in the current period. Therefore, this will be an opportunity for South Korean enterprises to invest in this field. It also opens a new model of growth engine for Viet Nam, including the development of human resources in the field of ICT.

Mr. Nguyen Hoa Cuong - Deputy Director of the Central Institute for Economic Management shared that over the past time, Viet Nam has always created favorable conditions for investment and business activities. In addition, the Government has preferential policies, especially in high-tech industries and human resource development. Recently, the Government has approved the planning of different economic zones, which focuses on infrastructure investment. Vietnam's infrastructure has developed quite strongly. In particular, in the coordination work, leaders at all levels from the central to local levels have directly listened to the opinions of enterprises, to promptly remove difficulties and obstacles of enterprises, including South Korean enterprises.
