COVID-19 Notice: The Asia Import Platform is designed to ensure that you can manage the importing process from anywhere – at a time when it’s impossible to visit suppliers and attend trade shows in Asia.
Looking for Vietnamese suppliers online but not sure where to start? The truth is that suppliers in Vietnam are not nearly as present online as their counterparts in Mainland China. Further, there’s no local equivalent to Alibaba.com. That said, there are a number of both Vietnam-based and international supplier directories you should check out if you’re looking for manufacturers, trading companies and wholesalers in the country.
