According to Vietnam Advertisement Association, 80% of Vietnam’s advertising revenues (app. US$500mill. in 2006) went to about 50 foreign enterprises, while app. 3000 local companies competed for the remaining 20%.

Most of serious FDI enterprises have their global marketing agencies, or choose to work with international partners in Vietnam, as between Unilever, Ford and Mindshare&JWT; Honda, Toyota and Dentsu. And increasingly, Vietnam’s companies also seek services, in particular strategic branding plan or creative campaigns, from foreign partners, such as MobiFone, Vinaphone or Viettel, 3 leading mobile network operators.

Among 3000 local entities, only a handful number is capable to draw a strategic marketing plan. Foreign advertising agents often seek to contract local companies in outsourcing of below-the-line activities: logistics, installment, branding, promotion activities.

It is not cheap at all in Vietnam to run a serious ad campaign. A 30sec TVC at major national channels (VTV or HTV) costs up to US$1,800. A full page ad fee in a 10,000-circulated bi-monthly magazine ranges between US1,500 and 3,000.

TV’s and newspapers in Vietnam are all under control of the government. There is nothing of so-called private TV or private magazine. While all TV channels and most newspapers run the sales of advertisement by themselves, a portion of (professional) magazines seek to work with local advertisement agencies to outsource the sales of ad.
