Although the trade has beenstumbled by COVID-19 for a while, we expect to break through a trade volume of $100 billion soon.
Also, Vietnam's economic growth isremarkable. Based on its abundant labor force, solid infrastructure, and a stable political system, it has shown a high economic growth rate of 6% on average since 2015 and has grown more by than 7% in 2019.

In support of this, the trade volume of medical devices between Korea and Vietnam was $1.41 billion last year, and South Korea ranked7th in medical device export 14th in import.
