Why Outsourcing To Vietnam

  • One of the most stable and secure countries
  • Average annual GDP growth of 7-8% during the last 15 years
  • Young and well-educated population
    • 70% of 87M population under 30
    • 220,000 university/college graduates a year
    • Literacy rate more than 90%
    • The government of Vietnam recognizes and promotes the importance of education and training
    • The aforementioned 2006 GlobalServices article cited Ho Chi Minh's "significantly low attrition rate" and "strong labor pool" as two other reasons for the city's inclusion in its list of the top 50 outsourcing cities
  • Competitive cost: 40% lower than China & India (neoIT, 2006)
  • Socio-Economic Stability
  • Strong government support for the software industry: tax, training & education, software/high tech parks, etc.
  • Ethnic/Religious Stability: Vietnam was ranked as the safest among the 14 countries in the Asia-Pacific Region by the Political and Economic Risk Consultancy in Hong Kong (Berth of a Nation in Time, autumn 2002)
  • Political Stability
  • Language: Unlike many Asian languages, Vietnamese uses the Latin alphabet, just as English does, which makes it relatively easy for Vietnamese speakers to learn English
