A great number of positive signals regarding economic development indicate a promising year ahead. While concerns remain over the stability of future credit growth, Vietnam is expected to further develop its economy in 2018 with strong inflow of foreign investment. Commercial leasing activities will continue to be active, with rental growth and occupancy levels expected to witness sustained improvements across all property types. Meanwhile, Vietnam’s condominium sector will continue the strong momentum seen in recent years, being led by the expansion of current developers.

On capital markets, the competition to acquire income producing assets as well as land sites from both local and foreign investors is expected to intensify amid positive sentiment and limited publicly-available stocks.
