September 18, 2007

Hanoi (ANTARA News/Asia Pulse) – The first eight months of this year saw Vietnam’s laptop imports surge by over 190 per cent from last year, the Ministry of Industry and Trade said.

It said some 110,000 laptops were imported to Vietnam in the period, supplanting personal computers (PCs) as the computer of choice in the country. Close to 75,000 PCs were imported over the first eight months, up 5,000 over 2006.

The ministry forecast that the computer market in Vietnam would grow by 60 per cent this year, with imported computers accounting for a 35 per cent market share.
