Silicon Valley, Vietnam
Young Vietnamese entrepreneurs are building a vibrant tech ecosystem across the country by tapping into a highly skilled talent pool and growing internet and smartphone usage. CNN meets two people leading the way: the CEO of one of Vietnam’s biggest tech companies, VNG, and the founder of Appota, a rising star in Vietnam’s tech scene.
CNN explores Vietnam’s growing cosmetics industry with a vlogger who’s helping young Vietnamese learn more about the market through her wildly popular Youtube channel, Chang Makeup. CNN also meets the local director for a Korean cosmetics brand, LG Vina Cosmetics, which has a large market share in the country.
Business of beer
Vietnam is one of the fastest growing beer markets in the world. Saigon Beer was first poured in the 1870s and now its brewer, Sabeco, says innovation and technology will give the company an advantage in the market. Not only is it facing increasing competition from local craft breweries but major foreign rivals are also leaving their mark.
Vietnam is the world’s second largest exporter of coffee after Brazil. Vietnam’s specialty is the more bitter robusta bean often used in instant coffee. CNN meets local brand Intimex, which is the country’s largest exporter of coffee, and speaks to young Vietnamese entrepreneurs hoping to cash in on the growing market for specialty coffee shops.
Some of the most iconic Western clothing and shoe brands are made in Vietnam. But because textiles are a major contributor to CO2 emissions, some sustainable factories in Vietnam, like the Deutsche Bekleidungswerke garments manufacturing center, are hoping Vietnam can become a global leader of greener and cleaner fashion.
