In the past few years, Southeast Asia (ASEAN) and particularly Vietnam have become a global investment hotspot which has received a lot of attention due to its relatively high economic growth rate. Vietnam, the economic leader in the region, is regarded as "The Rising Star'. It has received special attention because of its opportunity value recognized by worldwide investors, such as superior consistent government policy, additional free trade links, geographical location, young and productive workforce and low labor costs, etc.
