With Vietnam set to remove almost all its import tariffs for goods from ASEAN member countries, the absence of experience and money, could mean that small businesses will face difficulties and disadvantages on domestic market. However, experts believe that along with the challenges, domestic enterprises still could benefit from many opportunities.

97% of total import tariff lines will be cut to 0% from 2015 to 2018 according to the ASEAN Trade in Goods Agreement.
