2 - Furniture design and businesses are potential, but is missing

According to the report from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Vietnam is ranked 4th worldwide in furniture export and 6th worldwide in wood export.

These reports indicate that Vietnam mainly focuses on exporting furniture, and is missing the potential of the internal market.

A good example is early in 2019, IKEA - the world's largest furniture retailer has planned to set foot in the Vietnamese market.
