Vietnam has one of the world's fastest-growing economies. Vietnam's per capita GDP has risen 2.7 fold since 2002, and poverty rates have fallen significantly from over 70 percent to below 6 percent. They're also the biggest exporter of black pepper and cashew nuts. Not only are they popular for their growing economy, but they also have wonderful beaches and beautiful hills. They have eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including Ha Long Bay, where the Avatar movie was taken.
This year marks the 28th anniversary of Vietnam and Korea's diplomatic relations. Vietnam and Korea have been growing together rapidly as economic partners since their first diplomatic relationship. In 2018, Korea became Vietnam's second-largest import partner and the largest contributor to Vietnam's share of FDI. In addition, last year the most visited international tourist sites for Koreans were Vietnam's beautiful cities, Da Nang and Nha Trang. This has inspired many businesses to invest in both countries; thus, creates plenty of chances for interpreters and translator to excel.
