Hundreds of millions of dollars will be poured into Vietnam

Talking about the above mentioned trend, JLL Company said: Vietnam’s real estate market strongly attracts foreign investors, mainly through M & A activities. Joint ventures are becoming more popular among foreign investors – those have strong financial capacity and rich experience, with local corporations – investors possess land in the market as well as have close relationships with local authorities.

As observed by JLL, hundreds of millions of dollars is expected to be poured into the domestic market in most segments, including housing, offices, retailing space, hotels and industrial parks. Investors come from countries like Japan, Korea, Singapore and the growth of investor groups from China.

“In 2017 and the following years, the real estate market is expected to continue to be dynamic with a series of merge and acquisitions trading. Hotel segment always attracts attention during the past time with large amount of foreign capital poured into Vietnam.

We forecast that this tendency will continue to develop, while other markets such as the industrial parks and educational facilities continue to develop. The affordable housing market is considered as the leading source of investment capital, largely thank to the increase in number of of the middle class, “commented by JLL representative.

Meanwhile, Mr. Ben Gray, Director of Capital Market Investments Department, Cushman & Wakefield Vietnam analyzed: “We have found that legal system in Vietnam is constantly changing to be better and better. So far, it is on the right direction and is continuing to support foreign businesses wishing to invest in Vietnam.

However, real estate is still a conditional field and if a foreign business wants to develop on its own land, it may take a long time to be able to obtain operation license. This is also the same when they want to buy a completed project directly.

Therefore, many foreign corporations cooperate with Vietnamese investors on the basis that the two parties can provide their profession and contribute relevant skills to make a quality product. In the time ahead, this tendency will become popular as there is probably that foreign investors want to transfer capital into the Asia-Pacific region, including Vietnam, to make profit. “
