Vietnamese Across the World

The Vietnamese diaspora is among the world’s largest. It was fueled largely by waves of migration since the mid-XX century with the end of the First Indochina War (1946-1954) and the subsequent partition of Vietnam.

Thousands of Vietnamese families fled from their homeland in the aftermath of the Vietnam War (1954–75), seeking refuge in other countries. Today, there are an estimated 4.5 million Vietnamese living outside their homeland, with thriving communities in the USA, Canada, Australia, France, and Germany.

Reflecting its long-shared history with other Eastern societies, the family remains a pillar of Vietnamese culture. Family ties and strong, with multi-generational homes commonplace. Children are expected to care for aging parents, with filial piety expected.

Doing Business in Vietnam

With a fast-growing economy, Vietnam is an attractive destination for foreign investments. This appeal is underpinned by Its strategic location and strong connections to other markets in Southeast Asia and beyond.

With a population of over 96 million and a growing middle class, Vietnam is a potentially lucrative market. Better still, foreign investment is encouraged through government incentives like tax breaks and regional benefits.

Confucian principles are important throughout Vietnamese society, particularly duty and moral uprightness. Demonstrating respect and deference for seniority and authority is also vital.

Furthermore, foreigners should remember that Vietnam’s business culture is rooted in relationships and hierarchies. This means that building trust and establishing strong personal links are keys to success.

Vietnamese: A Beautiful and Culturally Complex Language

The official language of Vietnam and spoken by close to 100 million people worldwide, Vietnamese is a tonal language. It has six tones: level, acute, grave, hook, tilde, and short. This can be tricky for Western speakers, as the tone of a word can change its meaning.

Using the Latin alphabet (introduced by French colonizers in the XVII century), the Vietnamese alphabet has 29 letters. Some have diacritical marks, which indicate tone and pronunciation.

Its relatively simple grammar has no verb conjugation, gender, or plural forms. Instead, words are modified by particles that express tenses and other functions. Many phrases reflect traditional Vietnamese values and beliefs, influenced by Confucianism.
