    • VIETNAM | Q2 2013 | ECONOMIC UPDATE Vietnam is now facing slow economic growth due to inflation limiting measures. VIETNAM’S GDP REACHED 5% IN Q2 2013 Vietnam’s GDP in Q2 2013 grew 5%, slightly better than last quarter’s grow rate of 4.89%, with the major contribution from service sector (increasing 5.92% y-o-y and contributing 2.51% to the total growth). Meanwhile, the industry sector’s growth slowed down to 1.99% in Q2 2013 from 2.14% in Q2 2012. This modest gain was due to the weak demand which recovered at a lower than expected. Despite a further interest rate cut, bad debt still hobbled over the economy. In addition, credit growth also picked up at a slower pace than expected while pri- vate investment, manufacturing continued being narrowed down. Al- though GDP growth rate was not as high as expected, it was reasonable during this tough time. INFLATION WAS UNDER CONTROL Vietnam’s economic policies have succeeded in recovering macroeco- nomic stability over the past year, which was reflected in the strong decline of inflation and the increasing trust in domestic currency. Vi- etnam’s CPI in June increased only 0.05 percent from the previous month, driving CPI in the first half of 2013 up 2.4% against last De- cember, the lowest increase rate since 2004. This indicated inflation may not be a big concern this year. However, it also implied that pur- chasing power is much lower than last year, as total retail sales only increased 4.9% in first six months, much lower than the 9.8% increase last year, warning a difficult year of both production and consumption. FDI EXCEEDED US$10 BILLION Vietnam attracted approximately US$10.5 billion of newly registered and additional capital from foreign investors in the first half of this year, a 15.9% increase y-o-y. The figure included over US$5.8 bil- lion of newly-registered capital from 554 FDI projects licensed in the period. Specifically, the manufacturing sectors drew the most interest from foreign investors, with total capital of over US$9.3 billion during the reviewed time, which accounted for 88.9 percent of total regis- tered investment capital. Besides, among 45 countries and territories that have invested in Vietnam, Japan ranked first with nearly US$4 billion, followed by Singapore with US$3.4 billion and Russia with over US$1 billion. TRADE DEFICIT INCREASED In Q2 2013. export continued to enjoy steady growth with total earnings reached US$32.3 billion, 9% higher than Q1 2013. Meanwhile, import reached US$34.2 billion, rose significantly 17% q-o-q. Finally after one year, trade deficit increased with US$1.9 billion in this quarter. However, it should be noted that FDI enterprises were dominating Vietnam’s export and import turnover. In the first six months of 2013, foreign investment sector contributed 66% of total export turnover, reaching US$41.1 billion while it imported a total value of US$35.7 billon, accounted for 56% of total import turnover. DONG DEVALUATION OF 1% The State Bank of Vietnam (SBV) also devalued the Dong in June for the first time since 2011 by 1% against the Dollar to 21,036 to more accurately represent the supply and demand of foreign currency and to stabilize the local foreign exchange market.

However, it also implied that purchasing power is much lower than last year, as total retail sales only increased 4.9% in first six months, much lower than the 9.8% increase last year, warning a difficult year of both production and consumption.

    • HO CHI MINH CITY | Q2 2013 | INFRASTRUCTURE Infrastructure developments behind schedule, but some bright points appeared HO CHI MINH CITY On June 11, HCMC People’s Committee signed a contract with Hitachi regarding Metro Line No. 1 Package 3, which covers electrical and mechanical works, rolling stock for the first phase of the city's metro network. The total value of the contract is around US$381 million and includes the delivery of 17 three-car trains, signaling systems, tel- ecommunications, power supplies, platform screen doors, automatic fare collection, and depot facilities. Under a separate agreement, Hi- tachi will also provide maintenance services for five years from the operation of the project, which is expected to begin in 2018. Line 1’s construction began last year on the 17km elevated section, which is being built by a consortium of Sumitomo and Cienco. HCMC is planning to upgrade four bridges, including Bong Bridge (spanning District 1 - Binh Thanh District ), Kieu Bridge (District 1 - Phu Nhuan District ), Le Van Sy Bridge (District 3) and Hau Giang Bridge (District 6), with a total cost of US$37 million. Most of the money will be funded by World Bank loans. The construction of four bridges will be in accordance with the committed term of the loan agreement and is expected to complete in June 2014. The downtown area of HCMC will be expanded into five areas, with motorbikes and personal cars to be banned in the core area, according to the approved urban master plan by the city Department of Planning and Architecture. The area, which will have an expected population of 248,000 people, will have trams, shuttle buses and waterway traffic facilities along canals. The department is working out a schedule for implementing the plan, which was consulted by Japan’s Nikken Sekkei Ltd. Saigon Bridge No. 2, a major connection in the East of HCMC on Ha- noi Highway, is showing very good construction progress. Until June 2013, this US$71 million project has finished 84% of total construction work and is expected to put into operation in early November 2013, which is 5 months ahead of schedule. www.colliers.com/vietnam HO CHI MINH CITY On June 11, HCMC People’s Committee signed a contract with Hitachi regarding Metro Line No.1 Package 3, which covers electrical and mechanical works, rolling stock for the first phase of the city's metro network.

    • HO CHI MINH CITY | Q2 2013 | OFFICE MARKET P.4 | Colliers International Effective rental price lowered with incentives to increase occupancy. MARKET OVERVIEW Besides several new small Grade C buildings, there was no notable new supply in the office market in Q2 2013. The temporary pause in supply has helped push occupancy up from the last quarter but strong pressure is still pushing on rent as tenants are more selective and demanding. Landlords tended to hold and even increase asking rents at some high profile buildings; however actually the achievable rents and incentives are more open for negotiation by landlords. Typically new tenants will be offered three months rent free and one month for fitting out. But in some particular cases, to attract multinational anchor tenants, land- lords are willing to offer much more. This has become a market prac- tice and tenants have much more power to bargain. RENT MOVEMENT Q2 2013 witnessed Grade A asking rent rose 1.6% to US$38.8/ sq m/ month. Grade A market rents found its bottom in the second quarter last year and since increased if only slightly. However, it should be noted that rents only went up at the old and mature buildings. Asking rents at new Grade A buildings kept softening and these landlords is likely to do whatever it takes to secure new tenants rather than leaving their buildings vacant. Grade B and C rents still suffer with the downward pressure as price is their only bargaining tool. While Grade B rents decreased 0.6% to US$20.0/ sq m/ month, Grade C went down 2.2% to US$15.4/ sq m/ month. Some new Grade B buildings with attractive rents and decent quality, including Ree Tower, Empress Building or A&B Tower, man- aged quick uptake of space. OCCUPANCY RATE Occupancy rates for the office market has grown in all three grades. Grade B showed the strongest improvement in occupancy with 1.7 points up from last quarter. Grade A and Grade C meanwhile showed modest increases, only 0.9 and 0.1 point respectively. Overall, 87% of the whole office market in HCMC was already occupied. It is felt that landlords have succeeded in using pricing tactic to build up occupancy. However one more important reason is that new supply has been coming on a slower pace than before, leaving more time for existing buildings to fill up. OUTLOOK Up until 2014 it is expected that new supply will not be the major prob- lem as some projects being delayed and developers being aware of market absorption. The issue is on the demand side instead, including the economic situation and the power of tenants. Tenants will be more aggressive in negotiating rents and incentives and it seemed that they are dominating the battle. Achievable rents therefore are expected to keep softening but occupancy will increase. www.colliers.com/vietnam MARKET OVERVIEW Besides several new small Grade C buildings, there was no notable new supply in the office market in Q2 2013. The temporary pause in supply has helped push occupancy up from the last quarter but strong pressure is still pushing on rent as tenants are more selective and demanding. Landlords tended to hold and even increase asking rents at some high profile buildings; however actually the achievable rents and incentives are more open for negotiation case by case. Typically new tenants will be offered three months rent free and one month for fitting out. But in some particular cases, to attract multinational anchor tenants, landlords are willing to offer much more. This has become a market practice and tenants have much more power to bargain. RENT MOVEMENT Q2 2013 witnessed Grade A asking rent rose 1.6% to US$38.8/ sq m/ month. It seemed that Grade A market found its bottom in the second quarter last year and still enjoyed the short-term up trend. However, it should be noted that rents only went up at the old and mature buildings. Asking rents at new Grade A buildings kept softening and these landlords is likely to do whatever it takes to secure new tenants rather than leaving their buildings vacant. Grade B and C rents still suffered the down trend as price is their strongest advantage. While Grade B rents decreased 0.6% to US$20.0/ sq m/ month, Grade C went down 2.2% to US$15.4/ sq m/ month. Some new Grade B buildings with attractive rents and decent quality, including Ree Tower, Empress Building or A&B Tower, managed to fill up really quickly. OCCUPANCY RATE Occupancy rate brought a brighter picture for the office market by growing in all three grades. Grade B showed the strongest improvement in occupancy with 1.7 points up from last quarter. Grade A and Grade C meanwhile showed modest increases, only 0.9 and 0.1 point respectively. Overall, 87% of the whole office market in HCMC was already occupied. It is felt that landlords have succeeded in using pricing tactic to build up occupancy.

OUTLOOK Up until 2014 it is expected that new supply will not be the major problem as some projects being delayed and developers being aware of market absorption.

    • HANOI | Q2 2013 | OFFICE MARKET Limited uptake of space due to less demand and oversupply MARKET OVERVIEW During Q2 2013, six new office buildings came online in Hanoi, bringing the total supply to approximately 1.5 million sq m NFA. These include two Grade A buildings in Hoan Kiem and four grade B buildings in the West (new CBD), bringing the supply up over 100,000 sq m. As more supply has been coming online, rents continue to be a concern for owners and developers. Tenants now have the motivation to move out of old buildings in the CBD to higher quality and less expensive options in outlying districts. Those with 5 years contract from the thirst of office space in 2008-2009 now coming for better choices. Landlord are fighting to keep their current tenants as well as attracting new one. Many innova- tive incentives have been offered around the places to keep a decent, fair price among all tenants yet attractive enough for new or renew contracts. Property management probably would play more and more important role on retain a better tenant list as service is directly affect the daily life and representation of all offices. GRADE A MOVEMENT During Q2 2013 Grade A rents remained steady since the end of last year. Rent was recorded at US$38.70/ sq m/ month, which was almost unchanged q-o-q since the beginning of the year, however, there are incentives that ease up situation for companies during the hard time of the economy. Excluding the new buildings, Grade A have maintain occupancy rate since last year. Average occupancy in the Grade A market was at around 72%. Some Grade A buildings with more flexible negotiation on con- tract and better sales scheme continue to absorb new tenants as well as retain their own reaching their 90% occupancy rate. Grade A in the West side filling up almost 10,000 sq m with their space with aggres- sive strategy. GRADE B MOVEMENT Grade B segment continued on a downward slope, with average rents lowering from US$20.70/ sq m/ month in Q1 2013 to US$17/ sq m. The average occupancy saw an decrease of 7 percentage points, down to 73% in this quarter. This was due to new building coming to the market. Without them the occupancy rate would remain about same as last quarter. With landlords lowering their rents to fill up their space. OUTLOOK A significant amount of supply of over 150,000 sq m will come online through the end of the year. As a “tradition” in Hanoi, the new landlord is very confident about their buildings, with high price and no key ten- ants, new buildings in Hanoi usually suffer low occupancy rate at the beginning as a result.

It is likely that they are waiting for a better time for grand opening as currently the economy is still moving quite slow. Meanwhile the existing retail malls experi- enced a very difficult quarter with occupancy significantly decreased as tenants are moving out. However it is good to note that HCMC remains an attractive destina- tion for foreign retailers. In May, NTUC FairPrice, a large retailer from Singapore, started their operation in HCMC by forming a joint ven- ture with domestic retailer Saigon Co.op to set up a new supermarket chain. The joint venture opened their first hypermarket called Co-op Xtra in Thu Duc District with much larger scale than the normal Co.op supermarkets. Most lately, in the middle of July, the world’s most famous fast food chain, McDonald’s, has officially announced their appearance in Viet- nam through a franchise to Good Day Hospitality Company. Their first restaurant will be opened in early 2014 and will serve all McDonald’s popular menu. MARKET PERFORMANCE Average rents continued to decrease in Q2 2013 by 3% to US$49.7/ sq m/ month. More important, occupancy showed a notable drop by 4 percent points from 89.6% in the last quarter. Only the department stores managed to maintain their rent at US$60.8/ sq m/ month thanks to stable high occupancy at nearly 100%. Podium sector meanwhile suffered slight decline with rent decreasing 3.1% to US$54.1/ sq m/ month and occupancy down to 64.6%. Besides, shop- ping malls recorded rent softened by 4.5% to US$46.6/ sq m/ month but occupancy still dropped dramatically 7 points to 84%. This was mostly due to lots of tenants at the two Vincom buildings have moved out because of bad business result. This proved that as the society is tightening budget on retail goods and services, retail developments are facing lots of difficulties. Therefore, several malls planned to close for renovation or even changed to an- other business, particularly the Alta Plaza in Tan Binh District which was turned into a convention center and Thien Son Plaza in District 7 was closed to restructure. OUTLOOK Approximately 100,000 sm of retail space is waiting to come online until the end of the year and therefore a strong pressure is expected to put on the market performance. Consequently hope is all on the demand side, as the Government is loosening the policies to encourage the society purchasing power. However these efforts are not likely to take effect in a short time; therefore retail rent is believed to continue its down trend. Retail malls who locate outside the CBD will need to think of new way to attract foot traffic such as F&B area, cinema com- plex and popular anchor tenants. www.colliers.com/vietnam MARKET OVERVIEW There was no new supply in the retail market in Q2 2013, even several developments looked almost ready to open.

    • HANOI | Q2 2013 | RETAIL MARKET P.7 | Colliers International The market is waiting for opportunities MARKET OVERVIEW In Q2 2013, Hanoi retail market welcomed a new supermarket in Dong Da and 4 new electronic marts in Dong Da, Hai Ba Trung, Tu Liem and Ha Dong. On the other hand, 4 other projects were closed including the shopping center Hang Da Galleria. MARKET OPERATION The average market rent was recorded at approximately US$66/ sq m, a slight decrease of 0.7% q-o-q. The reopening of Trang Tien Plaza, which was able to achieve higher asking rents, as high as US$210, than the market average. Meanwhile, existing developments both in- side and outside the CBD saw very little change in rental rates. As a developing market, Hanoi retail sector only reached 9 stores per one million population, significantly lower than other countries such as Thailand, Philippine and Indonesia. Many international players on the market are looking at setting their foothold in Hanoi as well as expanding their business. A few projects with large floor plate are coming to the market and looking for key tenants to attract people to the project. However, as the market is not performing well, many tenants are hesitating whether to expand their business in a new building with vacant office spaces or unsold apartments. Regardless of some incentives, including rent free, fitting out package, promotion price, early moving in, experienced ten- ants rather wait for the space to be well organized and operated for a more profitable estimation. OUTLOOK A large supply of retail space is expected to come online throughout 2013. The most notable developments are Royal City and Times City, both being developed by VinGroup. These two projects will add ap- proximately 350,000 sq m of GFA to the retail market, equal to nearly 49% of the current supply. The significant influx of supply will put pressure on rents and occupancy in the city despite the developers efforts to pre-lease space prior to launch. Although retail, in general, remains a healthy market that has been experiencing fairly consistent growth, the market has already witnessed a number of developments closing for renovation or re-structuring tenant mixes to attract tenants amid current pressure, signaling that the market is already in a rela- tively weak position due to oversupply. Meanwhile on the demand side, it is believed that retailers are also facing lots of difficulties in their business when customers are tighten- ing their budget due to the slow economy. With food hygiene are on the front page of news on a daily basic, many professional food chains, especially western ones, are expanding rap- idly, looking forward to cover up the whole Hanoi geographically. Pro- jects with retail space that can accept such kitchen inside can take advantage of the expansion plan for a good key tenant.

On the other hand, 4 other projects were closed including the shopping center Hang Da Galleria. MARKET OPERATION The average market rent was recorded at approximately US$66/ sq m, a slight decrease of 0.7% q-o-q. The reopening of Trang Tien Plaza, which was able to achieve higher asking rents, as high as US$210, than the market average. Meanwhile, existing developments both inside and outside the CBD saw very little change in rental rates. As a developing market, Hanoi retail sector only reached 9 stores per one million population, significantly lower than other countries such as Thailand, Philippine and Indonesia. Many international players on the market are looking at setting their foothold in Hanoi as well as expanding their business. A few projects with large floor plate are coming to the market and looking for key tenants to attract people to the project. However, as the market is not performing well, many tenants are hesitating whether to expand their business in a new building with vacant office spaces or unsold apartments. Regardless of some incentives, including rent free, fitting out package, promotion price, early moving in, experienced tenants rather wait for the space to be well organized and operated for a more profitable estimation. OUTLOOK A large supply of retail space is expected to come online throughout 2013. The most notable developments are Royal City and Times City, both being developed by VinGroup. These two projects will add approximately 350,000 sq m of GFA to the retail market, equal to nearly 49% of the current supply. The significant influx of supply will put pressure on rents and occupancy in the city despite the developers efforts to pre-lease space prior to launch. Although retail, in general, remains a healthy market that has been experiencing fairly consistent growth, the market has already witnessed a number of developments closing for renovation or re-structuring tenant mixes to attract tenants amid current pressure, signaling that the market is already in a relatively weak position due to oversupply. Meanwhile on the demand side, it is believed that retailers are also facing lots of difficulties in their business when customers are tightening their budget due to the slow economy.

    • HO CHI MINH CITY | Q2 2013 | APARTMENT FOR SALE MARKET P.8 | Colliers International The 30 trillion package warmed the market, but at this point, just spiritually MARKET OVERVIEW Q2 2013 was quite an active quarter of the residential market in term of project launching. This is partly thanks to the 30 trillion package that was officially implemented. In total, there were 1,231 new apartments launched in this quarter, of which 73%were from the affordable market and the rest came from the mid-end market, reflecting the fact that high-end segment is still struggling finding the real demand. Both primary and secondary markets experienced stronger downward trends this quarter with prices decreasing 5.2% and 7.9% q-o-q respec- tively. THE PRIMARY MARKET Average selling price in the primary market stood at US$889/ sq m, most- ly due to the decrease in the affordable market. While mid-end market showed no change, high-end and affordable segments decreased 3.0% and 7.1% q-o-q respectively. The strongest decline in the affordable mar- ket is believed to benefit the favorable loan from the Government pack- age. Accordingly, only projects with price lower than US$715 psm can be considered qualified for a loan. Besides, thanks to the softened price, sold rate of the market reached 79%, up 3 pts q-o-q. THE SECONDARY MARKET Price in the secondary market suffered a significant drop of 7.9% to US$962/ sq m, much stronger than the decline in the primary market. This implied that individual investors are now facing even more financial pressures than the developers and they also have less patience as well as capital to wait for the market to recover. It is interesting to note that while developers has been switching to afford- able market with price even lower than US$500 psm, the majority of units in the secondary market are still ranging from US$1,000 - US$1,500 psm. This is because these investors already purchased properties at notably high price during the booming time of the market; therefore, now they cannot lower too much than the initial price. Meanwhile developers recog- nized that the real demand is in the affordable segment and therefore they flexibly redesigned and adjusted new projects accordingly. MARKET OUTLOOK The 30 trillion package was finally implemented. It showed the intention of the Government to rescue the property market by funding the end buy- ers. However it’s effectiveness is still doubted as so far there have been only few approved cases mostly due to unclear instruction on who will be qualified to receive the loan. Therefore, counting on this package to improve the market is almost im- possible even it did bring some good momentums to the society. Appar- ently buyers’ belief is the most important factor, and until this gains back, we will continue to see the market struggling to find buyers and rents will keep decreasing. www.colliers.com/vietnam MARKET OVERVIEW Q2 2013 was quite an active quarter of the residential market in term of project launching.
