In January, NAI Global President and CEO Jay Olshonsky, FRICS, CCIM, SIOR, announced the opening of operations in HCM City for the first time.
NAI Vietnam provides strategic advisory and property-related consulting services to private and institutional investors, developers, owners and occupiers throughout Vietnam. The services include sales, leasing, advisory, research, property management, and capital markets.
Jay considered opening the first office in Vietnam as a strong addition to the group’s network by growing the number of offices in the Asia-pacific region.
“We are delighted to have NAI represented in one of the region's rapidly growing countries," he said.

Banking/insurance, manufacturing, and IT sectors are expected to drive demand, with flexible/co-working office spaces showing notable growth in the past few years. Many office landlords, even in grade B and C buildings, are repositioning part of their space to accommodate this trend.
In the retail segment, many new retail brands are setting up stores or looking to set up stores in Vietnam, introducing new concepts to the market which will attract visitors as local discretionary spending power increases.
“Out-of-town malls will continue to flourish where larger available land plots allow for more destination-style retail experiences,” Hang said.
