Vietnam saw its national brand value increase by 11% this year to $431 billion thanks to its foreign direct investment policies.

Its increase of $184 billion year-on-year was the third highest of any country, U.K. consultancy Brand Finance said in a recent release.

The country went up one place to 32nd, just behind Thailand and the Philippines.

"The country has gained momentum as an attractive destination for foreign investment thanks to successful fiscal and monetary policies and investments in human capital, but also amid trade disruptions from China’s lockdowns and continued tensions between Beijing and Washington," the release said.

Among the 50 most valuable corporate brands in Vietnam, telecommunications giant Viettel led at $8.8 billion, up 44% from 2021.

It was followed by another state-owned telecom firm, VNPT, at $2.9 billion.

Other places in the top five were claimed by dairy giant Vinamilk, property developer Vinhomes and brewer Sabeco.

The top sectors in terms of brand value in Vietnam are telecom, banking and food.

Globally, the U.S. claimed top spot in the national brand list at $26.5 trillion, followed by China, Germany, Japan, and the U.K.
