Professional, Scientific and Technical Activities in Vietnam have developed steadily in the recent years after the economic downturn of the whole economy from the late 2008 and the early 2009. The industry has also been able to contribute marginally to the economic development of Vietnam. Determined as one of the important engine to enhance productivity and the competitiveness of the economy, the industry has received great consideration from the authorities as there is still much room for improvement. Foreign companies have led the way for innovation in professional services such as audit, tax or legal services. And FDI in science and technology has increased focusing on hi-tech parks, big hospitals in some key cities in Vietnam.
