As a pro-trade policy bank, HSBC welcomes the TPP agreement which will boost trade and investment flows across the Asia Pacific region”, Mr. Hai said in a press release.
“Vietnam is expected to emerge as a big winner from TPP, seeing higher demand for its textiles, apparel and footwear products. The deal could raise Vietnam’s gross national income by 10% by 2020, according to HSBC Global Research. The rest is up to us to reap these benefits”.
