By the end of 2020, the country with a population of just under 100 million people had only reported 1,465 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 35 deaths, the article states.

According to the Transport Intelligence (TI) market researchers, Vietnam benefits from the free trade agreements with the EU and the UK as well as the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), which have provided Vietnamese goods with better access to the Canadian and Mexican markets. Both before and during the pandemic, the country attracted investments, including those from manufacturers who wanted to relocate their production from pandemic-hit areas.
In recent years, Vietnam has moved the value chain from textiles and clothing to microchips, smartphones, and other electronics.
