Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/26/2015 -- We hold a positive outlook for the Vietnamese consumer, as the government targets economic growth through public spending and promoting investment and exports. We forecast real GDP growth at 5.7% in 2014 and 6.4% in 2015, on the back of supportive government policies, as well as a strong outlook for foreign investment and exports . However, political risks remain in the form of Chinese tensions, which we believe will continue for some time.

Like some of the other major European retailers, namely Carrefour and Tesco, Metro has had to rein in spending internationally over the past two to three years as retail sales across Western Europe have remained weak while, more recently, Russia, one of Metro's key markets, has slowed down in 2014. We still see Vietnam as one of South-East Asia's best retail opportunities.
