According to Moneyweek, many multinational corporations, especially in the field of electronics, generally consider that the product is made in Vietnam as a guarantee of quality. Vietnam is becoming the world’s electronics production base when China – which has always occupied the position of the global manufacturing factory has been challenged due to the “Zero COVID” strategy.
After a series of Apple’s largest assembly suppliers moved the production chain of products such as AirPods and iPad to Vietnam, it was the turn of Xiaomi – one of China’s leading electronics manufacturing groups to have similar move, moving part of the factory line to Vietnam.
In mid-July, this company officially announced to start selling “Made in Vietnam” phone products to the market.
The quality of electronic products manufactured in Vietnam factory, labeled “Made in Vietnam” is very good. They will be sold not only in Vietnam but also in Southeast Asia.

The wave of investment shifting from China to Vietnam is a hot topic in many international forums.
