Global companies have been testing Vietnam’s capabilities for several years, even before the added impetus from the US-China trade wars.

That’s because China’s rise as the world’s factory has created labor shortages and pushed up costs. Labor costs in #Vietnam, with its younger workforce and ample supply, are about 40 percent lower than in #China.

Vietnam also offers tax benefits and a six-day work week, which can enhance productivity. Many popular clothing and sportswear brands, including Nike and Adidas, already have a large manufacturing presence in Vietnam.

Lebanon’s public debt now stands at an astonishing 166 percent of GDP. Of this, 37 percent is denominated in foreign #currency. The country's central bank, Banque du Liban, is only days from having to redeem a $1.2 billion #Eurobond. But even if this passes smoothly, two more Eurobonds due in April and June will only further aggravate the Bank’s precarious reserve position and would hardly spare the country the cascading #economic crisis.

For several decades, Lebanon has shown a particular skill at navigating safe passage through severe economic crises variously brought on by foreign invasions, civil war, regional tensions, political assassinations and even the absence of a government for extended periods. In this remarkable record of miracle-making, the country was always fortunate to have what Dr. George T. Abed, Distinguished Fellow with the Institute for International Finance and a former Director of the IMF's Middle Eastern Department, writes are three firmly anchored pillars which typically saved the day:

An inclusive political system, powerful allies (Europe) and an open and liberal society have helped keep the country together. However, the past decade has seen a weakening of all three and it is now time for the country to seek international assistance to get its crushing debt under control.

Head to our site: em-views.com for Dr. Abed's expert analysis on #Lebanon and more news from around the world's emerging markets.

As Trump sticks to his threats of additional tariffs on China, portfolio managers Penelope Foley and David Loevinger of global asset manager TCW Group believe a de-escalation between the world’s two largest economies is not in sight.

“It is hard to see a resolution in the next month,” Foley said at a private event in New York this month. “Both the US and #China are taking a slightly harder line. Unless markets move in a way that gets their attention, which has not happened yet, I doubt you will see a resolution in a very short-term.” Head to our site: em-views.com for exclusive news on the US-China trade war and more coverage of the world's emerging and frontier markets.

As US President Donald Trump’s trade war continues, one global executive is sharing his views on the standoff between the two countries.

Many emerging market economies might not have the same magnetic appeal they once had for investors, tarnished by economic volatility and concerns about stability, but for David Rubenstein – co-founder and co-executive chairman of the Carlyle Group – now is the perfect time to plow money into ventures in the countries that fall under “emerging” market status.

“Right now I am putting a lot of my own personal money into emerging markets because I think that’s where the greatest reward is likely to be in the next couple of years as the cycle turns,” he said during a keynote address at the annual #EMPEA Global Private Equity Conference in Washington, D.C.

“If everybody was rushing into the emerging markets now, I would be nervous – but they are not, therefore I think there is greater opportunity,” he said.
