Vietnam seen as one of best bets for investors

Vietnam has been rated by the Economist’s Intelligence Unit, an offshoot of the UK Economist magazine, as one of the six best destinations for investors amongst all emerging markets because of its high level of sustained growth.

In a recent study, the EIU said that the shift of gravity in the global economy towards today's emerging markets continues to be led by the BRIC countries, ( Brazil ,  Russia ,  India  and   China  ). However, many global investors are increasingly interested in a new tier of countries beyond the BRICs, which are the CIVETS or  Colombia,  Indonesia,  Vietnam,  Egypt,  Turkey and South Africa.
