[스페셜경제= Dongsu Kim] Many companies and world economies are experiencing difficulties that ripple from the outstanding US-China tiff, others are still managing to stay upright on their two feet, and such is the situation of Vietnam, which is on its way to becoming more and more effective as a startup nation.

What does that mean, exactly? According to Al Jazeera, Vietnam’s growth is in large part thanks to tech startups, in this case, mostly food delivery apps which provide citizens of Vietnam with literally any food they could want that the country can provide.

Despite this being an important part of Vietnam’s journey into economic growth, the report still reveals that new businesses that have come into the country are also giving the government more challenges in terms of policies that might help companies eventually grow from these startups.

To try and make space for startups that now account for 40 percent of Vietnam’s economy, the government is now trying to “reduce the number of state-owned enterprises and expand the private sector.” If this continues, the government can hit its one million private businesses goal by 2020. If that happens, Vietnam is looking at an economy that could be a “substantial source for growth.”

Vietnam’s process is also catching the attention of global onlookers, too, as Aaron Everhart, a startup adviser from Silicon Valley lauds Vietnam’s effort and dedication to bettering what started off as presumably a pet project two years ago.

Since then, Everhart notes that a lot of Vietnamese provinces have dipped their toes in contributing some sort of entrepreneurial idea. However, based on Everhart’s analysis, though the country is slowly but surely coming into its startup nation identity, Vietnam would still need the “vocabulary and tools” to ensure that they stay on track with their budding startup nation.

베트남, '스타트업' 활용해 국가 경쟁력 강화한다

[스페셜경제= 김동수 기자] 베트남의 경제가치가 무궁무진하다는 목소리가 커지기 시작했다.

특히 베트남 경제의 40%를 차지하는 스타트업 회사의 경쟁력이 강화하면서 시장잠재력이 커지고 있다.

정부는 스타트업에 대한 지원을 강화하기 위해 공간 확보, 궁유 기업 수 절감, 민간 부문 확장 등의 제도를 내놓고 있다.

또한 "느리지만 확실하게 국가 경제 정체성을 맞추자"라는 의견을 바탕으로 계속해서 스타트업이 베트남의 실질적인 성장의 원천이 되도록 운영할 전망이다.
