Vietnam's young population - a quarter of whom are between 10 and 24 years old - will be key to its economic growth in the coming years. The country has also made significant progress in infrastructure in recent years. Its geographic location and proximity to its Asean neighbours increasingly make Vietnam a hub for investment into the region.
