Download the webinar to your computer here

As manufacturing costs in China, and locations around the world, continue to rise, investors are searching for the new low-cost destination for their operations. Vietnam has arisen as a key manufacturing location in Southeast Asia.

Vietnam - New Workshop of the World is a recording of a live webinar that was hosted by Dezan Shira & Associates and Long Hau Industrial Park. This webinar will help you to determine if Vietnam is a suitable manufacturing location for your company. From the webinar, you will learn how to battle the rising manufacturing costs by rethinking your China strategy as we cover the costs of doing business in Vietnam and tell you about the tax benefits you can receive by relocating to Vietnam. You will also learn about the pros and cons of setting your operations in an industrial park. We use the case study of Wahl Clipper Vietnam to provide you a better understanding what the country has to offer as a manufacturing location.
