Foreign investors speak highly of Vietnam's property potential.

It cited an example of the VanEck Vectors Vietnam exchange-traded fund, saying it is up 9% since the Congress wrapped on February 2. In addition, Dragon’s United Kingdom–listed Vietnam Enterprise Investments fund has gained 17% this year.

Pouring cash into improvements should enable the government to achieve its 6.5% to 7% annual growth targets while boosting profits for appropriately positioned companies, said Bill Stoops, chief investment officer at Dragon Capital in Ho Chi Minh City, as quoted by the article.

On the country’s property potential, Nick Niziolek, head of global strategies at Calamos Investments, was quoted as saying that “New household formation in Vietnam is running at 80,000 to 90,000 a year, and supply at 60,000 to 70,000.” “That’s an exciting long-term opportunity,” he added.

Regarding commercial and digital infrastructure, it quoted Sean Fieler, chief investment officer at Equinox Partners as saying that “Vietnamese engineers cost less than in India, and thousands of them are learning Japanese.” According to him, FPT Vietnam, a diversified IT provider with a burgeoning outsourcing business in Japan, saw its shares jumping by a third this year and can run further.

With all the country’s positives, US investors might have reason to edge back into Vietnam anyway, the article concluded.
