Vietnam makes it tough for any automotive manufacturer to export its goods into the country.  In fact, even just last year, many automakers halted their shipments to avoid the cumbersome restrictions into the country.  An article found in the Asian Review indicates that Vietnam will continue its strict restrictions throughout the year.

The Asian Review states, “Vietnam plans to continue strict enforcement of automobile import rules, Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung says, amid resistance to the year-old policy from overseas carmakers.

The rules, which took effect in January 2018 as auto tariffs within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations were cut to zero, require complicated procedures for auto imports — such as quality certification from the country of origin and inspections for each lot of imports. Though Dung acknowledged at a recent meeting that the rules initially caused confusion, he said many of the issues have been resolved, according to local reports.”
