ASEAN’s only forum on Investment, Partnerships and Operations 4.0

Vietnam has over the years succeeded in positioning itself as a manufacturing hub for retail, electronics, pharma, textiles and agriculture to name a few, thereby driving supply chain shifts. Its China + 1 strategy has been enabled by numerous trade deals, and the accompanying investment in infrastructure has created a robust warehousing and logistics industry.

As a result, the warehousing market is expected to fetch over USD 8 billion in investment by 2022. The time is right to explore market drivers, investment and partnership opportunities, and how to capitalize on this booming market. Vietnam’s ONLY such event for the sector will provide the answers.
