2. Forecast of M&A trends in the coming time in Vietnam market

The new normal has both positive and negative impacts on the M&A market. Globally, the value of M&A in 2020 recorded a decline; in which, Vietnam is assessed to be the least affected among Southeast Asian countries.

Similarly, in other countries in the world, the Covid-19 pandemic has been creating a series of pressures for the Vietnamese economy in general and each industry and field in particular. However, Vietnam is emerging as a safe and attractive investment destination after successfully controlling the Covid-19 pandemic. Among Southeast Asian countries, Vietnam is an attractive country to enter or expand for foreign businesses. Despite the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, Vietnam is currently the only country with positive growth, while other countries in Southeast Asia have negative growth.

M&A in Vietnam is a form of activity that has not been specifically regulated in Vietnam, so businesses and investors, especially foreign investors, often face many obstacles and difficulties in implementation.
