Ho Chi Minh City, also known as Saigon, is Vietnam’s economic and financial center. Today, Ho Chi Minh accounts for one-third of Vietnam’s GDP. This dynamic city of over 10 million inhabitants is one of the fastest growing and emerging markets in Asia-Pacific for technology, manufacturing and property developments. Annual growth of the city’s economy is at 8% year on year and positioned to be the 2nd fastest growing economy in Asia by 2021 according to Bloomberg.
