17/11/2018

Vietnam Real Estate Summit (VRES 2018) will take place in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, respectively. What is the most interesting information brought by the biggest real estate event of the year to investors, experts and real estate companies?

The first notable information that will be discussed at VRES 2018 is related to Vietnam's industrial property sector. In particular, US President Donald Trump has announced the imposition of a 10% tax on the $ 200 billion worth of goods, which will rise to 25% by the beginning of 2019. The statement comes shortly after the decision of imposing a tax of 25% on 50 billion dollars of goods imported from China in September 2018. This escalation of US-China trade war may have a direct and indirect impact on Vietnam market.

In addition to the obvious effects on consumer goods such as textiles and garments, leather and footwear, experts predict the real estate industry, in particular industrial real estate in Vietnam, will see some certain impacts. This may be the shift of big manufacturing companies out of the Chinese market to the neighboring countries including Vietnam.
