Vietnam Shipping Report Q4 2014 - New Market Report


Fast Market Research recommends "Vietnam Shipping Report  Q4 2014" from Business Monitor International, now available

Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/12/2014 -- Latest GDP figures show that  the Vietnamese economy grew by 5.0% year-on-year (y-o-y) in Q1 2014, and we  believe that our 2014 real GDP growth forecast of 5.9% remains in sight. Indeed,  we believe that increased macroeconomic stability, combined with pro-growth  policies will help the economy accelerate from 2013 levels, which will be  welcome news for the country's shipping sector. Key downside risks to this view  include a faster-than-anticipated slowdown in China, as well as the stalling of  the country's reform drive.
We believe that government policies aimed at  promoting balanced economic growth, improving the stability of the banking  system, diversifying exports, attracting foreign investment and attracting  investment in infrastructure bode well for the economic outlook.
