As the region undergos massive transformation in its retail landscape, global retailers — even though still cautiously entering into new markets — are now looking for investment opportunities. For instance, Aeon (TSE: 8267) is investing ¥43 billion in opening more stores, especially in China. South Korea’s E-Mart (KSE: 139480) is investing US$200 million in Vietnam to build supermarkets and commercial facilities, and in social development. Vietnam was the world’s 11th fastest emerging retail market in 2016, up from 28th in 2014, and is favored by most investors for its strong spending power.
