Vietnam is among emerging markets to see high transactional growth in merger and acquisition activities, according to Baker & McKenzie.
In their latest report Baker & McKenzie includes Vietnam within emerging markets with highest transactional growth in merger and acquisition (M&A) activities.
Stand-out markets for predicted high transactional growth over next five years include developed economies such as the Netherlands, the UK, Sweden, China, Hong Kong (China) and India, and the emerging markets of Mexico, Egypt, and Vietnam.
Globally, Baker McKenzie analysts predict M&A deals will rise to $2.7 trillion worth this year before accelerating to $3 trillion in 2016 and $3.4 trillion in 2017.
M&A activity relating to emerging markets will grow dramatically, rising by 56 per cent to $678 billion by 2018, up from $435 billion in 2014.
The most active sectors over the next five years are forecast to be healthcare, telecommunications, and structural financials.
Consumer goods and services, technology, and pharmaceuticals are also expected to expand due primarily to cyclical trends.
