Selection of the best local importer / distributor for your pet products in Vietnam
The building of sales and distribution networks for pet related goods, service and information in Vietnam is a number one priority in developing the pet industry in Vietnam. Major nodes of this network should include the three major urban regions of Vietnam: Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Hanoi and Da Nang / Hoi An where the majority of pet owners live.
Vietnam has a population of over 90 million with over 35% of her population under 30 years old: these pet owners prefer to buy their pet products in modern retail outlets. The combined population of the Saigon and Hanoi and the second tier of urban city regions in Vietnam that include Hai Phong, Can Tho, Bien Hoa, Nha Trang, Buon Ma Thuot, Hue and Thai Nguyen is over 35 million.
Vietnam also has the second largest rate of ownership of dogs per capita in Asia: the Philippines is number one.
