According to Mr. Truong Trong Hieu, nowadays, there are more foreign investors looking to the Vietnam market to conduct M&A (mergers and acquisitions) as a general trend. The main reason is that the Vietnamese government is reconstructing and innovating the process of reforming state-owned enterprises. This creates attraction to oversea investors and brings them a lot of great opportunities in the Vietnamese M&A field.
Besides investment opportunities, they also faced many difficulties when coming to approach Vietnamese state-owned enterprises to conduct M&A. For instance, they are not familiar with the Vietnamese legal regulations and characteristics of business administration in Vietnam. Especially, Vietnamese State-owned enterprises. Also, there are some common administrative and legal constraints in the Vietnamese market in general. Another issue that may also cause concern for foreign businesses is the feasibility of evaluation and appraisal of Vietnamese State-owned businesses' financial records.
To face and overcome these obstacles, said Mr. Truong Trong Hieu: “Foreign investors need to have time to approach Vietnamese State-owned companies, penetrate the legal and political environment in Vietnamese M&A activities.
