Business partner selection in Vietnam is a service commonly used by foreign investors as an alternative to establishing a limited liability company (LLC).

By engaging a local partner, foreign investors may conduct direct exports from their location, import and distribute their products in Vietnam; all without incorporating a legal entity. Selecting a reliable business partner or distributor in Vietnam is a complex and time-consuming process that might require help from agencies located in the country.
