At the end of 2016, Zing News reported that a representative of Inditex, Zara’s parent company, denied rumours that Zara would be opening two stores in Ha Noi. “Zara will be expanding in the Vietnamese market, but has no plans to open more stores in the near future,” Jesus Echeverria, Inditex’s media representative, had said.
The presence of Topshop and Zara in Viet Nam, and rumours of H&M and Uniqlo opening stores soon, are positive signs, indicating that big brands across the world are seriously considering this potential market of 90 million people. — VNS
