There are not many certainties in the business world. In fact, it could be said the only certainty is that change will come, and when it does, it will come fast, hard, and surprising. Today, almost all businesses are now marching into the modern era where the evolution of innovations and technologies is fundamentally transforming retail business’s operations and strategies. Store owners and investors are forced to adapt and gear up themselves in accordance to consumers’ preference as well as uncertain business environment by embracing new business ideas, technology, and innovative solution and all of them can be found through the first edition of “Shop & Store Vietnam 2018.” Certainly, businesspersons who adapt now will enjoy a sustained advantage for decades to come but those who do not will once find themselves falling behind the competition.
Industry Leader’s Thoughts

Mr. Pham Le Nhat Quang
Senior Investment Manager, Vietnam Investment Group,
the investor
The Pizza Company, Dairy Queen, Swensens, Bdubs, Toco Toco, etc. in Vietnam.

“Vietnam retail market is still young and potential for investment opportunities. The most importance is that we must put it on the right track to the very end. Therefore, I highly appreciate the idea of Shop&Store Vietnam and look forward to the Business Match Making program at this Confex.”

Spurred by a rising middle class and influx of international retailers, Vietnam retail sales hit a record US$129.6 billion last year.

This was growth of 10.9 per cent over 2016, according to the Vietnam General Statistics Office (GSO).

Vietnam’s largest real estate company, Vingroup, starting expanding its Vinmart Plus convenience store chain in 2016 and has already topped 1000 stores – it opened 100 last month alone. It is predicted the store network could reach 3000 this year.

Supermarkets and convenience stores are selling meat and vegetables at prices that are 20 to 30 per cent higher than at traditional markets, and the number of specialty shops selling organic vegetables is growing.
Spending on cars, home electronics and other consumer durables is also brisk, with 70 per cent of Vietnam’s GDP coming from personal consumption.

It is said Vietnam still has room for growth as modern retail channels like supermarkets and shopping centres account for only a quarter of total retail sales, and most of these businesses are in big cities, reports VIetnamNet. By 2020, the proportion of modern retail channels is forecast to rise to 45 per cent.
