Netherlands - Vietnam economic cooperation 2012

More bilateral trade, but FDI drops
► Bilateral trade continues to increase (2012/11M: USD 2.8 billion). NL market share remained roughly the
same (11.6% over the first 11 months of 2012 compared to 11.7% in 2011), making us the 4th EU trading
partner, after Germany, France and the UK.
► Significant drop in ‘Dutch’ registered FDI: from USD 396 million in 2011 to USD 93 million in 2012 (as of
15 Dec.), but high volatility due to low number of projects should be taken into account. NL is the 4th EU
investor in 2012, but remains biggest cumulative EU investor.
