APAC Consumer Survey – Vietnam:  How we like shopping 

In August 2014, CBRE conducted its first ever consumer survey, interviewing 11,000 consumers in 11 major cities across Asia Pacific to discover where and how they shop for non-food items such as clothing, shoes, accessories, skin care products and electronics goods – particularly in relation to their changing behaviour and expectations of different types of shopping destinations. Vietnam was included in the survey with a total of 1,000 respondents from 18 to 64 years old, splitting equally between Hanoi and HCMC. This report presents initial findings from the survey comparing Vietnam to the region.
