Obstacles when importing and sourcing in Vietnam

Given its “golden” population of over 97 million people, Vietnam, nowadays, is growing towards a global manufacturing hub with competitive labor costs, and raw materials, central location in the heart of Southeast Asia. Plus, the EVFTA mutually lifts 99% of the tariffs within years, Vietnam presents itself as a much more lucrative land than ever for many European enterprises. 

However, there exists a big gap between Western companies and Vietnamese manufacturers due to the differences in many aspects from languages to working styles. Here are some facts about Vietnamese business culture that you need to know before working with potential suppliers:

  • Indirect communication styles: This causes confusion in many cases. In Vietnam, people tend to communicate indirectly. In some cases, your counterparts say “Yes” does not necessarily mean they agree, but simply is “I heard it”.
  • Face saving: The “face” speaks for the prestige of both individuals and organizations, thus causing your partners to lose face – whether intended or not – can kill your deal.
  • Silence: Silence means your partners are considering something. Interrupting this period of reflection can be considered rude while waiting in vain will not work out, either.
  • Complexities in working with authority: Lastly, working with authority sometimes can be confusing for Dutch companies. Many companies tend to end up wasting their time and money when working with the authority, so it’s better to have an experienced sourcing company take care of your business houses.

  • Hence, it is a real uphill struggle to find reliable Vietnamese suppliers or Vietnam manufacturing via online platform, because you can neither perform quality control nor understand your business partner.

True story base on our sourcing experience in Vietnam

There was a client from an European company, before they met us, they ordered a container of pottery with holes from Vietnam, but what they receive was the ones without holes. The reason turned out to be the miscommunication between the company and Vietnamese manufacturers, that’s they do not understand why the pot needs the holes. And more important is the lack of production monitoring before the shipping process. 

That all explains why you need to have a Vietnam sourcing company to help you overcome all those barriers, and find suitable manufacturers to produce your product at a competitive price.
