A lot of Unilever's product advertisements are now being shown on the television all day long. The pictures of those products are also printed on many magazine and newspapers. Contrary to "above - the - line", "below - the - line" is an indirect marketing campaign. By doing personal selling (such as sale promotion), Unilever has taken a long step in Vietnam's market in a short period of time. INTRODUCTION Vietnam is a densely populated developing country whose economy has been recovering from the war. After the economic reform Renovation policy in 1986, the Vietnamese government commits to economic liberalization and international integration. State owned enterprise was established in Vietnam. However, they did show the weaknesses like backward technology and small scale business. This required Vietnamese government to adopt economic policies to make the economy prosper, one of which is privatization. The number of privatized enterprises has increased pronouncedly. In 2004, Vietnam privatized 715 enterprises and at the end of 2004, there were 2.242 privatized enterprises (Civillawinfor, 2008). Since the economic reform Renovation in the mid-1980s, Vietnam's economy has been expanding and it is expected to continue on that upward way in spite of current economic restraints. In spite of the 1997 Asian economic crisis, the Vietnam's economy had much more immunity to this crisis than many neighboring economies, primarily because Vietnam did not have a stock market or an internationally traded currency at that time. Vietnam's economy develops step by step and has achieved some success. A sustained growth rate of around 8% for over 15 years shows great progression. It is one of many reasons for the increasing number of foreign investors. In 2007, Vietnam received over US $20 billion of foreign direct investment (FDI). FDI is recorded to increase by 70%, compared with the data in 2006. In the same year, more than 1,500 new projects are carried out in Vietnam. ...read more.
