Vietnam Introduction

Vietnam is a beautiful country at the eastern edge of mainland Southeast Asia. Having developed throughout the last 10,000 years, we are known for our rich history and undauntable but hospitable citizens

Tourism: Vietnam is an attractive destination for tourists. The country has transitioned to a market economy after decades of conflict and socialist reforms. Socially, it is evolving progressively, with historically outdated conservative values increasingly being replaced by universally accepted ideals and aspirations. Ambitions are shifting as well, with more young Vietnamese wanting to work for innovative multinational businesses. This modern mindset also transfers to their daily lifestyles, where many speak English and French, travel the world, and wish to be a part of our globalized world as workers, friends, and volunteers for good causes.
We want to introduce you to New Vietnam, of natural beauty, bustling towns, rich historical traditions, and cultural attractions, as it has become one of the most sought-after vacation destinations in the world now. The rising Vietnamese tourism sector has welcomed more than 15 million international visitors. WSDC 2023 is your chance to visit!

The country’s natural scenery is regarded as one of the greatest in the world by foreign visitors. The breathtaking Halong Bay, the highland town of Sapa in Laocai, our 31 National Parks, multiple World Heritage sites, massive caverns, and various lovely white sand beaches are places to explore and enjoy. TripAdvisor’s 2014 Traveller’s Choice Awards for the top 25 destinations in Asia ranked Hanoi 2nd, Hoi An 10th, and Ho Chi Minh City 18th for visitors. “Military tourism” also brings many visitors to Hanoi’s old Hoa Lo Prison or “Hanoi Hilton.”

Politics: In recent years, the Youth Union has organized many awareness-raising and informative activities on policies and laws for young people. The Youth Union offers a forum for young people to participate in the formulation of national policies and laws. The new generation of Vietnamese recognizes and utilizes their political capital and is willing to contribute to systematic changes to build a more modern and cosmopolitan Vietnam. They play a key role in the development of foreign relations with leading global nations. When US President Barack Obama visited the nation in 2016, his remarks at a gathering in Hanoi’s capital city echoed this sentiment: “This is your moment,” he declared, assuring the youths of Vietnam that the United States, which had battled Vietnam for more than two decades, would be right there with them as they followed their dreams for a vibrant, thriving New Vietnam.

Economics: Vietnam’s economy has been gradually improving since the Doi Moi policy began in 1986. According to a prediction by PricewaterhouseCoopers in February 2017, Vietnam’s economy might be the world’s fastest-growing, with a projected annual GDP growth rate of roughly 5.1 percent, making it the world’s 20th-largest by 2050. Vietnam has also been named in the CIVETS and Next Eleven lists.

Hospitality & People: The instinctive Vietnamese hospitality as a display of compassion, respect, and love for their friends and visitors is a national characteristic. Visitors become aware of this the moment they step off the plane or train! Travelers from around the world to Vietnam have been gushing over the Vietnamese people’s warmth, kindness, and helpfulness without end, especially on social media. It is fair to say that we have had our share of foreign invasions, wars, and misery. Despite this, we seek peace and, perhaps, reasonable wealth, as well as an aspiration to be a part of the global community and continue to grow our economy while developing our people. Last but not least, Vietnamese possess the will to strive for success with their amazing perseverance. A prime example is Mr. Pham Nhat Vuong, a real estate developer with a net worth of USD 7.8 billion. He debuted as the 974th richest person in the world on the Forbes Billionaires’ List. Mr. Pham is regarded as one of Vietnam’s most respected success stories for his grit and determination. The luxurious Vincom Center in Saigon, Vinpearl Hotel, Vincom Village, and Vincom Center Ba Trieu in Hanoi were among his recent real estate projects. Mr. Pham then merged Vincom and Vinpearl to become Vingroup, which is now one of Vietnam’s most valuable corporations on the stock exchange. In 2007, he gave USD18.5 million to his country to create a vocational high school and kindergarten. Vietnam is proud of its history and people, and we are looking ahead to the future to establish a nation of rugged, unified people working for peace, prosperity, and happiness for all.
