Particularly, domestic supporting industry mainly concentrates on processing and assembling phases whose value added is still low and spare parts and components depend largely on import. Industrial proportion in the gross domestic products changes slowly, at around 18 percent currently, much lower in comparison with industrialization requirement and other countries in the region.
According to experts, the main reason that caused domestic supporting industry to develop sluggishly is that when FDI enterprises made investments, supply chains followed them and established their own supply channels so it is difficult for Vietnamese enterprises to approach. However, frankly speaking, the level of development, administration and other conditions of domestic enterprises is still far from satisfying the requirements of FDI enterprises.
Currently, up to 97 percent of supporting industry enterprises are small-sized and super-small sized enterprises, making it quite difficult for them to access and develop supporting industry.
