“Indians are among the leading investors in the UK today due to two key factors. Firstly, when investing in Vietnam, there is a four-year tax exemption, followed by a 50% rebate for the next nine years if no profit is generated. Additionally, the overall taxation in Vietnam remains at 10% for a decade. The country boasts highly skilled manpower, supportive universities for research, and industrial corridors with available land banks for investment,” said Goyal.
