Vietnam was not spared from the global economic downturn but going into 2010, the country started to experience an Asia led economic recovery. From then till now, we have witnessed an upturn in investment activity coupled with several successful property launches driven substantially by domestic demand. The country's economy, one of the fastest growing in Asia, is brimming with incredible real estate development opportunities. In recent years, the retail market has also shown tremendous development, growing from strength to strength. This growth is driven by the very compelling Vietnamese demographic. More premises in the retail market will be necessary to meet the rising demand as international brands set foot into the country.

The incoming flow of foreign direct investment into Vietnam and strong domestic demand shows that Vietnam hosts many opportunities. These opportunities, however, will only be seized by those who comprehend the complexity and challenges of the unique investment landscape and legal framework of the country. Tread carefully with lust or caution?

You are cordially invited to join us in a private invitation only seminar jointly organised by Mayer Brown and CB Richard Ellis to discuss the recent developments of the Vietnam real estate market with a focus on the retail market and how real estate investors and developers alike are able to seize the opportunities available in Vietnam.
