According to statistics, the basic construction industry is recording a very strong growth of 25% compared to the same period last year.
The factors that bring growth to the infrastructure construction industry in Vietnam are that in 2019 the macroeconomic base will continue to be stable and the CPI will continue to remain low.

According to experts, Vietnam is attracting more foreign investors than ever thanks to tax incentives and low labor costs. The Government of Vietnam also prioritizes public investment in infrastructure, high-speed construction projects, elevated roads, bridges, oil refineries, and industrial parks.
Multinational companies, large corporations from China are strongly promoting the production shift to Vietnam instead of China. This will help promote industrial construction and create favorable conditions for contractors in this field.

These companies have good growth in production and business activities and have great development potential in the period of 2020-2022.
