Vietnam represents the second-largest exporter, among the ASEAN members, to the EU.

The deals would bring about abundant chances for Vietnam to become a production hub in the region as it would take advantage of 7-10 golden years to access the EU market.

Last February, the European Parliament (EP) passed the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) and the EU-Vietnam Investment Protection Agreement (EVIPA).

Under the agreement, Vietnam will cut 65% of import tax on EU commodities after the deal takes effect, while the rest will be erased over a 10-year period. Meanwhile, the EU will cut more than 70% of tariffs on Vietnam’s commodities after the deal takes effect, while the rest will be abolished over the seven subsequent years.
