Therefore, it might not be wise to increase investment pressure in Vietnam much. But in the long run, of course, the Vietnam stock market is another interesting market.

long term investment opportunity

“Warorit Chirachon” Executive Director, Investment Analysis Group SCB Asset Management Co, Ltd (SCBAM) said in the medium to long term, She still has a positive view on investment in the Vietnam stock market. By looking at positive factors of 1. Vietnam is an underdeveloped country. But with a relatively high GDP growth rate of 5-7% per year, GDP is expected to be around 6% this year and 7% in 2024.

and 2. the structure of the population with a relatively low average age causing the revenue structure to continue to grow which, when people have a good income, also makes matters of domestic consumption good

“But if you look at the short term like this year If you look at the Vietnamese stock price, last year was quite bad, down about 40%. Compared to global stock markets, it is considered the worst performing stock market. But this year has started to see some recovery in the market. Because the market has already received a lot of negative news. But what hasn’t fully recovered is the pressure factor of delinquency concerns.

related to the real estate sector and the picture of the slowing economy That may make Vietnam, a country with large exports. affected because it exports less So, various pressure factors will have to wait for time to develop.”

However, there are still positive factors this year, for example, the Vietnamese government tends to announce public investment policies, namely investments in infrastructure. That will help stimulate economic development and 2. New land reform legislation.

In order to solve various real estate construction problems, the stock had previously been dropped, partly because of the slipperiness of this issue and if this issue has a better direction, the investment climate (sentiment) should be better.

“In the short term, there are still concerns. but long term investment He believes that investment opportunities belong to people who dare to invest in monsoon days. A day that encounters risks and uncertainty, so now if investors believe that Vietnam will recover well in the future It is a good point to buy and gradually accumulate,” said Warorit.
